I am deeply appreciated as a math tutor, a tutor for accelerated learners or those needing extra support, and a teacher for homeschoolers, including those about to begin public education who have fallen far behind educational standards for their age. In February 2012, I began tutoring privately. From 2008-2012, I taught at Huntington Learning Center as an ACT/SAT tutor, subject tutor, PERT tutor, TEAS tutor, and general tutor of those aged 5 - adult.
I began tutoring peers as an 8th-grader. In high school, I was known as an excellent tutor for chemistry, Algebra II, and editing / grammar. I took pre-med level courses at the University of Florida before deciding to attend seminary. Through a 4-year program with courses in theology, history, and practical theology; I earned a Master of Divinity across the street from the University of Chicago. At that time, I had full use of the UC library.
I believe the more students engage in multi-sensory learning, the more long-term the learning will be. I teach my students study methods and accountability for daily rehearsing of material they seek to master. Additionally, I have the ability to tutor in high school Spanish I and II and beginner-level piano/music theory. I have five years' experience as a substitute teacher, nine years' experience as a pastor, and a lifetime's passion for giving precocious preschoolers room and guidance to thrive. I passed the Subject Area Examination SAE for Social Sciences grades 6-12 in 2008 after five days of study. I passed the SAE for Math grades 9-12 in 2012 after three days of study. I tutor full-time; one-on-one tutoring and facilitating workshops are my niche.
My son is a 5th-grade gifted student. His father is an 8th-grade science teacher.
Since February 2008, I have tutored elementary students in core subject areas. I have done this in one-on-one settings and in one-on-four settings. I have helped students increase understanding of subject matter, joy while learning, and success on scores and grades.
Since August 2008, I have been a substitute teacher in the St. Lucie County School system. I have direct familiarity with their school surroundings, classroom expectations, and curriculum.
Within the last year, for example, I have tutored elementary students in the areas of FCAT prep, spelling, writing, reading, math, science, and Spanish. I have familiarity working with children with special needs.
Also, I have taken about half of the Educator Preparedness Institute's classes at IRSC for those professionals who are entering the field of education.
I can relate to the stresses and time management burden of parents. I have a son who is a 4th-grader in a local public school. I volunteer as a math tutor at his school.
