I graduated in May 2012 with a degree in Speech Language Pathology. I attended college as a National Merit Scholar, made a 1430 on the GRE, was named the 2011 Truman Scholar from Mississippi, and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I did focused work in the areas of special needs and Autism spectrum disorders. My ambition throughout college has been to help individuals reach their fullest potential.
I love to learn, and I love to teach. I have had experience tutoring in both formal and informal settings. I know what is effective and what is not from my experiences as a tutor and as a student. My tutoring specialties include standardized test preparation, language, grammar, study skills, and high school math. I know math through Calculus I, have taken advanced literature and history courses, and know biology, genetics, and anatomy and physiology well.

I am an avid chess player, and have also had experience teaching chess to both children and adults. I am familiar not only with basic chess rules and moves, but also with logic and chess theory.

Mastering skills such as these can lead to significant improvements in a student's grades and confidence.

My grade improved immensely over the time we met. It was evident to myself and the people around me that her tutoring was helping me. I went from failing to passing the class with a B. She was always on time and professional. She is also encouraging and she ...
