I graduated from an all-girls college and majored in Business Administration with two minors, one in Sociology and one in Equine Science. I enjoy reading, writing, math, and artwork. When I was in Fourth and Fifth grade I was a study buddy for the First graders and I taught them to read. I home school my two children who are in Fifth grade and Ninth grade. I can read almost any subject and quickly understand it. When I teach others, I will ask them about their hobbies and learn more about what makes them tick so that I can use that to teach them. Each student uses different senses for learning. Some learn best by hearing while others learn best by doing or seeing.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have home schooled both of my children. My daughter started home school in Third grade and my son started in First grade. Both of them were below grade level in their reading skills. It took me one year to get them up to grade level with their reading.

I can also teach younger students study habits and how to spend less time studying and more time having fun. Yes, you heard me right! I was taught that if I spend only 15 to 20 minutes studying a subject, I would be more likely to recall the facts than if I spent two hours trying to memorize it all. It works!

I graduated college with a B.A. in Business Administration, a minor in Sociology and a minor in Equine Science. I enjoy teaching and have found that if you can make it fun, they will retain it.

Geometry

I have home schooled my two children in math and tutored geometry with local students. I can show your student how it can be used in every day life so they can understand why they need to learn it.

Swimming

When I was younger, I was a Girl Scout. I earned every single badge in the Girl Scout manual including my Swimming badge. Part of earning that badge was learning CPR and learning how to jump in the pool without having my head go under water. Now, that's easier said than done! We also had to tread water for 30 seconds or more with our head above water the whole time. This is a fun competition for kids who are learning to swim.

My Dad built a swimming pool in our backyard. He taught me to swim when I was only two years old. The first thing he taught me and all of my friends was Safety! Safety is the most important thing to understand when learning to swim.

Since I am a small-framed person, I do best teaching younger children to swim. I do like to have fun with it. I enjoy teaching children who are respectful and willing to learn. I have two children of my own who have been swimming since a very young age as well. It's easy, fun and best of all, it's great exercise!

It all started when my daughter was having problems keeping up with her first grade class in reading. She was doing poor on her homework assignments and receiving low grades. After lots of meetings and arguing back and forth, we finally decided to place her in a special reading program. Not only was she now missing playground time but she also had to spend some time after school as well doing... read more

Very helpful — We are very happy with Pam and how she patiently works with our daughter. Pam takes her time and makes sure our daughter fully understands the concept being reviewed then tests our daughter with extra math problems. Pam is always on time and our daughter truly is enjoying math. We highly recommend Pam as a tutor for anyone who struggles to teach math concepts to their own children. ...
