I am a social worker with over 20 years' experience working with children. I have enjoyed tutoring in both the home setting and the after school classroom. Regardless of the subject, I find the most effective way to achieve positive results is to first determine what type of learner a child is, whether visual or auditory. Based on experience I have learned some students learn better when information is presented to them visually and some learn better when things can be explained thoroughly.

Another important tool I have found to be effective is relating the subject to everyday life. More often, students are able to connect with a topic if they can associate it with their tangible lives. A very good way to get a student interested in a subject is show them the relevance it has on their present and future. Another fun tactic I have used is putting things in song. Coming up with fun, silly tunes to help students remember terms and understand concepts is a creative way of approaching learning.

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.

Criminal Justice

I have had my Master's in Social Work for over 10 years. As a social worker, I have become quite knowledgeable of the criminal justice system as well as the sociological factors that contribute to individuals becoming part of the system and the obstacles faced when trying to end a pattern. To grasp an understanding of deviancy, students need a basic understanding of the pathology of criminality.

Public Speaking

Throughout my professional career I have had to make presentations to individuals in various positions of government and business. I have also been a member of Toastmasters, which is a club that promotes improved communications styles. There I learned how to handle pregnant pauses as well as avoiding filler words such as "umms", "ahhs", "you knows", and "likes". I also learned great techniques on how to maintain eye contact with audiences.
