If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

If I could describe myself in three words, they would be goal-oriented, amicable, and reliable. Even though I don't have a teaching degree, I do have 2 1/2 years' experience as a high school and middle school substitute teacher; in other words, I compensate for proper training with professional knowledge. My tutoring methods could be best summarized as straightforward yet very hands-on, practical but creative.

As for my personal background, I graduated from Illinois State University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in Mass Communications and a minor in Composition. In my past employment I have worked in the radio and insurance industries, predominately as a receptionist and in the accounts receivable department. In my spare time I take improv classes and moderate an online discussion forum.
