I am a highly motivated and enthusiastic online tutor with a Graduate Certificate in Online Teaching. I have a passion for helping students of all ages and abilities achieve their academic goals. My background includes curriculum planning and development, assessment of learning styles, innovative lesson designs, and I have been extremely successful in motivating students who, at the beginning, showed a general disregard and disinterest in the subject area. I am knowledgeable in most general education subjects, K-12, and have designed and facilitated several courses in English Composition, Literature, and the Visual Arts at the undergraduate level. I believe that learning is a life-long process, and I am dedicated to helping students realize their potential to achieve greatness.
While my initial goals in the field of Education included curriculum assessment, course design, and program development, I found that providing public school learners with a private school-type learning experience (personalized attention)to be both personally fulfilling, and beneficial for each student I work with. My tutoring methods are not based on a generic curriculum. Instead, they utilize the school district curriculum and actual class assignments that each student is learning. This ensures that my tutoring remains personalized to the learner's individual needs. By using the actual tests and assignments from the classroom, it guarantees the student is learning a single, cohesive curriculum, rather than, for example, both a tutoring center's implemented curriculum, along with the learner's specific school district and/or institute of higher education's required standards.
