Hi, my name is Tammy and I have years of experience tutoring many students in math, science and English. I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees from Chaminade University and I am currently working on my doctorate in criminal justice. I have a strong work ethic and a commitment to student scholarship and excellence. You'll find me enthusiastic, professional and dedicated. I have been helping students since 2005 and have recently joined the WyzAnt community to assist students pursuing academic excellence. My objectives are to help students reach their full potential, engaging students through fun and rewarding sessions, and helping them understand that obstacles can be overcome with patience and commitment. As a life-long learner, I can attest that there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student smile and succeed. My credentials include many years of experience working with a variety of students and my education which entailed extensive study and application in academic writing, mathematics (including statistics and calculus), physics, biology, and chemistry. As a tutor, I understand that students learn in different ways and at different speeds. For students to achieve their highest potential, it is necessary to foster a student-led environment and to tailor to their specific needs. Feel free to contact me and ask me how I can make a difference in your child's life!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I believe that I am qualified to tutor Elementary K-6th subjects because of the nature of my experience in working with children in math and English at this grade level with another tutoring agency in the past. I am able to help students: write professionally and effectively, conduct research proficiently, help them to understand vocabulary by breaking down shell words and foster excellent study skills. Students will also benefit from learning how to break down sentence structure to understand nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs and other functions of their relevance to paragraph formation.
