About Sonya

I have 27 years of Government Service where I currently work. I hold a BS degree in Accounting and a Masters degree in Discipleship Ministries from Liberty University. I graduated May 2014 with Masters of Divinity in Professional Ministries.

Currently, I am working on Board credentials in Life Coaching. Everyone has something to contribute to society; they just need guidance on tapping into their creative side.

I served as the Christian Education Director at Revival Temple Full Gospel Church. In 2005, I wrote a six week curriculum for the five year old age group that was incorporated in the Bible Study that year.

It is my desire to see young people achieve their dreams. I am a firm believer that the sky is limit and with hard work we can achieve our dreams.

With Math, repetition is the key. My method is to teach the concepts in fun ways that will build the students confidence level and assist with memorizing the concepts. Concepts are explained step-by-step so that I can help the student with steps that present problems. Students will have the opportunity to practice these concepts in their homework exercises and/or reviews. I firmly believe practice makes perfect. Additionally, after students learn the concepts, they will have the opportunity to use various re-enforcement methods, such as Math software (purchased by the tutor and using tutors computer with WiFi connect with parental consent).

My services include helping children prepare for Math Test and Exams. Students have the opportunity to be rewarded (at my discretion) for their hard work. Those who know me know that I love giving incentives. I have five years experience in tutoring. I would love the opportunity to help you achieve your goals.

Courses that I specialize in Math (Elementary, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, College Basic Math, Business Math, Accounting- Principles I and II).

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Accounting

My undergraduate degree is in Accounting. I will tutor high-school- college students in Accounting.

Currently, I tutor College students in Principles of Accounting.

Algebra 1

My philosophy is to help children learn the concepts. If children understand the concept of the Math, they will know how to plug in the numbers to complete the problem. It is my goal to assist students in improving academic achievement by meeting with them on a regular basis to clarify learning problems and work on study skills. Other assistance might include: reviewing class material, discussing the text, predicting test questions, or working on solutions to problems.

Math/Reading no problem together we will make it happen. Check out my profile and areas that I am certified in for more information. GED fees $45-50/hr.

Prealgebra

Accounting and Math are my favorite subject. For Math, I tutor elementary Math, Pre-algebra, Algebra I, and college developmental Math.

Reading

Reading skills are developed by being able to comprehend the material before you, having an understanding of the vocabulary and how each word is used in the sentence, and being able to find the main idea. Reading should be enjoyed and encouraged. It is my goal to help you find the joys of reading.





Religion

I graduated with Masters of Divinity from Liberty University (Professional Ministries) in May 2014. I also have a Master of Arts in Discipleship Ministries from Liberty University (May 2011).

Spelling

I work to incorporate fun ways to remember spelling words and concepts.
