I am a graduate of The Florida State University where I majored in Criminology and earned a 3.3 final GPA. I have always been a natural learner and thinker so teaching comes easy to me, however, my strength is the weakness of many others. I understand how important education is for success, and I also understand that everyone's thirst for knowledge and their abilities to learn vary from person-to-person.

I believe that learning and the ability to learn is based on those who teach abilities to adjust to their subjects and show various ways of learning. There is not one set way of learning. Unfortunately, most teachers are only prepared to and capable of teaching one way. I believe it is important to adapt teaching to the personality and learning capabilities of your student in order to engage them and maximize their learning potential. Patience, care, and resilience are the emotional keys to learning success in conjunction with a foundation in fundamentals, practice, and hard work. I am here to provide and encourage all of the above.

I have worked with children as young as five to adults over fifty years old and feel very comfortable in my abilities to engage, inspire, and teach effectively through communication and relating to all personality types and learning abilities.

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.

Basketball

I have over fifteen years of basketball experience as both a player and a coach. I played on my high school team and in a summer league at my local community center for several years. I was an assistant coach and manager on two separate AAU teams in my area.

Chess

I have been an active chess player for more than 15 years. I participated in several tournaments, placing no worse than second in any contest. I have also taught and coached the craft for more than 12 years to friends and family.

Criminal Justice

I received my four year bachelor's degree in Criminology from The Florida State University.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked for two years as a teacher with children from kindergarten to 8th using teaching techniques that cater to brain response which ultimately promote easier and more fun learning experiences. Such techniques included song and rhythm as forms of teaching to retain large amounts of information for later recollection (i.e. the alphabet song, mnemonic devices. I have actively taught and tutored children from kindergarten through 8th grade for the past 7 years.

Nutrition

I spent the past eight years studying nutrition independently through books as well as documentaries. I have extensive knowledge in both the vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, as well as supplements and vitamins and their effects on the body. I am well versed in popular nutrition theories as well as facts. I have taught nutrition to my women's group and children's group at my church for the past 6 years, and personal nutrition with cancer patients for the past 3 years per request.

Public Speaking

Was an teachers aid for a public speaking course for two semesters and also served as a personal assistant to a motivational speaker where I often wrote, re-wrote, or co-wrote speeches and coached on how to deliver them.

Sociology

I minored in Sociology at The Florida State University. Courses I took included Classical Sociology, Society and Population, Mass Society, Society and Media, among other courses. I finished one class shy of earning a degree in the subject.

Study Skills

I have tutored for over ten years at every grade level from kindergarten to college. I also practiced under an education major with a master's in brain neurology who developed a fail proof way to teach large quantities of information and make them easily absorbed through rhythm and song.
