Greetings,

As a recent graduate and aspiring elementary educator, it is my pleasure to encourage higher achievement in areas where a student requires extra nurturing and care. It is my absolute pleasure to offer tutoring services not only to help build satisfactory skills in the rudimentary subjects of reading, math, and science but in motivating and building the student's overall confidence. Tutoring for me is my way of mentoring young minds and giving young people their best chance of hope that will positively affect their future aspirations and dreams.

The subjects that I offer to tutor are Elementary Level Math, Reading, Science, Language Arts, and Writing (including Creative Writing). Building study skills is another service made available for students in Elementary through High School grade levels; this includes ACT and SAT preparation. Furthermore, I offer services to help students in motivational, public speaking along with an array of other areas where tutoring and coaching is necessary. I am open to the challenge of learning and acquiring skills in order to tutor students in other subject areas that I may not directly offer, as well.

Furthermore, my other areas of expertise are visual arts, focusing specifically on drawing, painting and computer art, as well as arts-n-craft projects. With a degree in fine arts, I find tutoring as a wonderful way of sharing my passion for art with others. I am also available to help students from the Elementary to College-level who are taking classes in Art History. With great commitment, students will learn the importance of Art History and how to be successful within that particular classroom setting. As an artist, tutoring on these subjects is the same as sharing a part of who I am; the subject areas are more personal and will be easy to teach in the way the student can best understand.

As an aspiring primary grades teacher, I take advantage of hands-on teaching aids in order to reinforce the same hands-on learning the student receives in the classroom. Tutoring sessions will most definitely encompass audio and visual aid, lesson-based games and trivia, colorful interactive posters, along with the more traditional study materials like flash cards, call-and-response tools, and practice worksheets. Ultimately, the goal is to expose the student with the desired subjects using methods that appeal to the senses of sight, sound, and touch.

I enjoy taking advantage of opportunities to share with young people the power of knowledge and offer innovative tools to bring out their greatest potential. As a mentor in my local community, I enjoy changing the lives of young people through motivational speaking, teaching, and simply cultivating genuine relationships with each of them. I hope to carry these amazing experiences as a mentor into the field of tutoring.

I have acquired 20+ credits in Art History courses; my subject areas are mainly in General Art History, History of Painting, Art History: African American Art, and African Art History. While a summer intern/tutor at Bayshore Christian Ministries 2009, I was able to incorporate Art History lessons with the students' art projects, which were showcased during the end of the program Art exhibition.

I am currently a Bible Study teacher at my local church, teaching Bible Study classes to students ages 4-17. Overall, I have at least 5 years experience in Bible Study teaching.

I am a recent graduate of Spelman College where I have acquired mastery skills in reading, writing, basic mathematics, and science. In previous job experiences, I have two years experience mentoring and tutoring students between Kindergarten and Sixth grade levels. While a summer tutor at Bayshore Christian Ministries, I had a class of third and fourth grade students where I tutored each student in math, reading, science, art, and writing in accordance to the statewide education standards.

I participated in various school-wide projects where I teamed with other artists to produce paintings for student organizations.

Again I have least 12 credit hours of education courses at Spelman, along with my present endeavors to obtain certification to teach and a masters in painting.

Study Skills

I am a recent graduate with a bachelor's degree. That accomplishment for every graduate requires that to have taken the ACT and SAT exams in order to eligible for college. In my tutoring experience, I have taught each of my students various study methods to help them enhance their skills in the areas of interest simply through the method of repetition and ongoing practice.

From elementary through middle grades, my students have benefited from my simple study methods, which include how to effectively make and use flash cards; how to take a subject and reteach it; and how one can reuse previous homework assignments to create practice tests and exams. Furthermore, I showed my students how to research online resources to aid them in additional practice.

As a camp counselor working with youth at summer camps - I implemented enrichment exercises that helped each of the campers in my class to retain skills learned in their previous grade.
