I am the holder of a Bachelor of Arts Degree in the field of English. During my English studies, I became acquainted with Shakespeare and many of the most well-known writers from our past; requirements for a well-written essay; grammar and punctuation; and many other topics within the scope of English and literature/literacy.
With Video/Audio Production as my college minor, I fell in love with visual creativity and composition. From recording to editing, and everything in between, I learned through countless nights of work without sleep and highly-anticipated deadlines! But, once that long-awaited final project was complete, I was able to sleep knowing that all of the hard work was well worth it!
At this stage in my life I have grown accustomed to taking standardized tests. What gets me through these would-be spirit-destroyers is the knowledge that patience and strategy are just as important as the skill being tested itself!
As an eldest sister of 4 children, I grew up guiding my siblings through their studies. Now, as a tutor and mentor of teens and young adults, I have become skillful in tutor/tutee and mentor/mentee interaction. I am a huge believer in finding and nurturing learning styles to help build strong, educated leaders of the future!
I received an Associate of Arts in Arabic in 2008.
I received a BA in English with an emphasis in Communication Arts in 2006. I have tutored elementary school students, middle school students, high school students, and adult learners in the area of reading, writing and English Literature. I have also helped prepare students for standardized tests, including the SAT and the GRE. My degree studies covered Journalism and both Radio and TV Production.
Additionally, I have acted as a volunteer and mentor for children and young adults, including members of the Boys and Girls Club.
