Public Speaking

I have an avid love for public speaking. I'm an accomplished public speaker and an award winning speech writer. I have written many speeches for numerous events and occasions. I have a Broadcast Journalism degree; I have been a host for public programming, on-camera voice for two TV stations, and on-camera personality at my college's TV station. I found my love for public speaking in elementary school when I was performing at the local community theater in my hometown which eventually grew into a love of public speaking in front of hundreds of people. I love helping potential speakers improve their writing or speaking abilities. I have found that certain theater exercises and writing exercises are very useful for helping potential speakers become more confident in speaking and they enjoy their performance so much more!

Special Needs

I have helped children with special needs in the past. I have advanced special needs certifications and know how to handle IEP goals and manage the environment for optimal learning. I will be available in the summer to take on clients needing extra curriculum structure to help students gear up for the upcoming school year. Please don't hesitate to ask!

Study Skills

My experience with study skills is quite diverse. I have helped both high school and college students with study skills concerning test prep, test anxiety, methods for note taking and memorization, as well as overall performance organization.

I have also worked in a special needs classroom; specifically for an alternative school for grades K-12. I applied study skills through the mediums of flash cards, visual schedules, visual aides, and repetition activities to name a few.

I believe that to help a child succeed in study skills is to recognize and adapt to each child's learning style beyond just the visual, audio, and hands-on techniques. I believe what makes a great tutor is by helping the student not only learn the material, but also build his/her self-confidence with the material. This enables the student to reduce text anxiety and to enjoy school.

As a professional, I believe in continuing education and to keep up with new trends in teaching, I'm currently seeking a collegiate certification in teaching students (at all ages levels) with dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, and other learning disabilities.

Please do not hesitate to email me with any of your questions. I look forward to speaking with you soon!

Writing

I continue to master existing and new writing styles on a regular basis. For example, I'm an award winning writer, a published writer, a journalist with a career working for local TV stations and newspaper since I was 17, and a technical writer. I love writing projects that include blogging, writing articles, and grant writing projects. I've also written award winning essays (and have also helped others write award winning essays) some of which have received monetary awards. I love what I do.

I have a track record for improving my students' and clients' writing. I also have helped adults learn to write. I have a track record for improving essays for competition, scholarships, academic courses, and/or scholarships. With my background, I have found that writing is both a science and an art. I love what I do!

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
