My desire to teach is grounded in my desire to see others succeed. Only you can do the work, but I can show you how to be efficient with your efforts. Everyone learns in a variety of ways, so we will work together to discover how you learn best in order to make sure the material is presented to you in the most effective manner. That is to say, we will discern whether you are a tactile, auditory or visual learner or a combination. As an undergraduate and graduate student, I attended many seminars on how to discern what type of learner a student is and how best to present the subject matter depending on the student's strengths. Presenting the material in a way that is best for you will allow you to retain the information for your exams and internalize the lessons for later use as well.
No matter the subject, I am confident I can make the material more accessible and engaging. However, I do specialize in legal studies, history
) and standardized tests (ACT
, etc.). I have a graduate degree in law
, known as a Juris Doctorate and an undergraduate degree in History with a minor in Economics. In order to achieve these degrees, I became an expert at essay
and multiple choice examinations on top of mastering the subject matter of my courses. In addition, I have successfully completed multiple standardized tests with competitive scores, to include the LSAT, ACT, AFOQT and ASVAB.
During my undergraduate studies, I worked at a local day care center where I tutored young children, K-6 graders. I also coached them on sports fundamentals and helped them with after school projects. I am also the eldest sibling of 3 brothers and 2 sisters ages 11 - 20. I have had the opportunity to help them with their homework and exams on numerous occasions as well as providing them with mentorship based on my professional experiences. In short, I can work with students of all ages and education levels. Most importantly, I am excited to help others learn and show them how to use their intellect and education to their advantage in all stages of their life and career.
My tutoring sessions can be scheduled with multiple students or one-on-one. I am flexible with time (e.g., cancellations at least 2-3 hours prior to the lesson depending on distance). I prefer to meet at local libraries because they are an excellent place to study as they are quiet and have additional resources if necessary. If necessary, I am also willing to make other arrangements to accommodate the student.
Good luck with your studies and I look forward to working with you!
