UNFORTUNATELY, I AM AT MY MAXIMUM NUMBER OF STUDENTS FOR FALL 2014.

I graduated summa cum laude from both Dominican High School in 2009 and the University of Dallas in 2013. I was an English major with a Business concentration. Currently, I am studying for my Master's in English at the University of New Orleans. My hope and plan is to become a high school English teacher in New Orleans.

I have always loved learning, and I love to share my love of learning. However, I fully understand that not everybody feels the same way; I myself have struggled to understand or interest myself in certain subjects without help from others. Thus, I always approach tutoring with a combination of enthusiasm and creativity.

Regarding English, literature and reading:
As an English major pursuing an MA in English, it is safe to say that I am not only competent and proficient in grammar, punctuation, reading comprehension, literary analysis, etc., but that I thoroughly enjoy teaching these skills to others. Believe it or not, I *enjoy* proofreading papers. I have had years of experience in this field. In high school and college, I helped both peers and younger family members with their English papers and classes.

Regarding math:
Despite my English background, I have spent the majority of my time working as a math tutor, especially at the elementary level. I have a firm grasp of arithmetic, geometry, and algebra; but I also possess the creativity of a liberal arts student. For example, I have had great success in the past by rewarding good work (in this case, memorization of times tables) with desirable rewards (specifically, sparkling Disney princess stickers). I know how to help an easily-distracted student pay attention to the problem at hand, and I can generally explain the concepts that lie behind the memorization. I find that this type of visualization helps students remember the rules.

Overall, I have worked as a private academic tutor for the past 3 summers; I have also tutored on an unofficial basis for longer than that.

Approved subjects

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.

Religion

I have taken religion classes throughout my entire education, from elementary school to college. I have also spent a fair amount of extracurricular and personal time studying the Bible. While in college, I even organized a lecture on the Book of Job by one of our theology professors.
