I have many years of experience teaching and tutoring. I am a Golden Apple Scholar Award Recipient and continue to work with the foundation in my spare time, preparing college students in their journey to be a teacher.

In my program there was an emphasis on anthropology and I took several courses. I am familiar enough with the content to be an effective tutor in that content area.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a secondary education certified teacher and I have taught in high schools and middle schools, therefore elementary topics are certainly within my content scope and range. My middle school teaching background allows me to be able to teach elementary topics very well. Tutoring K-6th topics would be extremely feasible for me and I would be able to prepare students for their next level of education.

I am qualified to tutor elementary math because I excel in the subject. In addition to my humanities background and qualifications math is another strong point. Tutoring in this area would not be a problem.

Study Skills

I have taught an enrichment course in the past that focused on core study skills for success in high school. The course was a summer enrichment course for incoming freshmen. It taught study skills for use in class and out of class. One component of the course was note-taking.

Vocabulary

As an English teacher I have also taught vocabulary acquisition in my courses. I am effective at getting students to understand the meaning of words through applying their knowledge and using context clues. Vocabulary is a strong point for me as I seek to always broaden my vocabulary and I can do the same for students I tutor.

World History

As a history teacher I am certified to teach World History. I have taught 6th grade World History. I am culturally learned and can make World History topics relevant and meaningful for students I tutor by connecting content to modern day and current events.

Writing

I am an extremely skilled writer and can transfer my skills to students I tutor. As an English teacher I focus heavily on writing skills to make students college ready. I emphasize all mechanics of grammar and syntax in my students' writing. I challenge students daily to improve their writing abilities. I proofread my students' writing constantly for school, classes, applications and college and scholarship essays. I would be an excellent choice in tutoring students in strengthening their writing abilities.
