Hi there! My name is Aundriel and I recently obtained my MBA in Accounting and Human Resources. I have primarily tutored for ACT/SAT prep, English, writing, math and reading. In my professional experience as a marketing rep and a loan officer with credit unions, as well as a retail manager, I frequent career days and speaking engagements, as I relish the opportunity to reach out to high school students as they prepare for adulthood.
My tutoring/coaching method begins with discovering what the student or associate looks to gain from the experience. I like to discover what her expectations are for the sessions so that we are both aware of the goals and accomplishments that we can look forward to after successful sessions. Secondly, I assess where the student thinks he is. I need to know where he thinks improvements can be made so that I understand his perspective in the process. Once I compare this to what the parents and teachers say, I can usually discover what the disconnect is between where student is and where he wants to be. I teach interactively--I ask students to deliver lessons to me, I use flash cards, visual aids, and associations. I also like to translate lessons into terms that align with the student's interests so that she can grasp concept in a familiar "language". We can then place in the context of school or a test or a job interview.
I personally scored in the 85th percentile or higher on every section of the ACT/SAT and in the 99th percentile on the Reading/Writing/English portions.
I have several years of experience teaching and tutoring specifically for standardized test prep.
I have a track record of consistent improvement in students' scores.
I offer strategies that students can use immediately to test more effectively.
I received my MBA with a concentration in Human resources and I achieved all A's in these classes. I have served as a manager for more than five years and I have seen many of those I have coached and tutored move forward in their careers and schooling to reach their goals. I am very passionate about developing others and helping them find their best fit within an organization based on their skills and interests. I feel that I am gifted in this area because I truly believe that each person possesses the ability and desire to succeed; sometimes a little push and encouragement is all it takes.
I have worked with grades K-6th over five years, during high school, college and intermittently throughout my professional years. I tutored in reading, writing, and math. Some students had special needs and some just were lost in the day to day shuffle of many other students and testing deadlines. Mainly, I helped these students gain confidence and understand not only the content of their studies, but also the steps they needed to take to stay ahead of the curve for the future. Parents and students consistently noted that I helped my students develop study habits and methods that they would turn to throughout the years. I have often found that schools present sometimes circular methods to communicating math and reading in effort to cover standardized test content; I present straight-forward methods in math and reading. I am patient, empathetic and consistently focused on future goals. I want the children and parents to always know what we are striving for so that we can all be held accountable for achieving it.
A few additional points regarding my English experience:
--Majored in E Lit at Washington University (Dean's List)
--Senior Honors Thesis
--MBA at University of Phoenix (with honors)
--Consistently recognized in my profession for having clear communication to superiors and subordinates.
--Scholarship Winner for excellence in oratory contests in high school and college.
My public speaking experience began in high school where I spent several years competing in various speech and debate competitions. I earned numerous college scholarships for my efforts in these events. In college, I majored in English literature and acting, so many times, my grade depended on my ability to present a paper in class or to deliver a performance. I graduated college with honors and completed a senior honors thesis in my acting major. Finally, to earn my MBA, I had to publicly present papers, research, and presentations for each class. All of this prepared me for my career in training, management, and coaching. I have organized and hosted career days for my company, where I present on financial topics to high school seniors and college freshmen. I have also put together training classes for my associates and peers in several companies I have worked for to teach newly-hired employees as well as progressive learning for the experienced ones.
My qualifications to tutor study skills include my work as an ACT/SAT prep tutor and a one-on-one tutor. I have helped students and team members with time management, subject comprehension and to vastly improve their test scores. I also completed my master's degree (MBA, with honors) while working full-time. I believe the key to my success lies in my ability to prescribe a method for myself and others that works with the way we already learn; I find the comfort zone and use it as a foundation to provide other tools to process material and stay organized.
