Approved subjects are in bold.
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.
I experienced tutoring of my own as a young math student, and I think that really gives me an advantage for understanding student needs and the best strategies as a tutor now myself!
I have tutored a number of students in Introductory Psychology (college equivalent of AP Psychology) as well as more advanced coursework. I graduated from UW Madison's Psychology program, ranked among the top in the world, in 2.5 years with a 3.9 GPA. I will be starting a Doctorate of Psychology in the Clinical track this fall at the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, IL.
I have experience working in a number of research lab settings as well as applied clinical internships.
I am qualified to tutor students in study skills because I have past experience helping struggling students get on a better time-management schedule by making detailed calendars. I also practice recall techniques with students utilizing mnemonic devices and personal examples to help students remember material for exams and assessments. I help learners pay attention to key course information as well as retain necessary terms and concepts for short and long-term evaluation. I teach students that it is okay to reward yourself a break or snack once certain tasks are complete and help guide them in focusing activities. I have experience tutoring students who struggle with study skills in order to help them prepare for finals as well as standardized tests like the ACT and SAT.
