A graduate of Davidson College, I have taught middle and high school English and currently teach Developmental English at CPCC. I have also clocked in over 500 hours at a local tutoring agency, and I am a tutor at the UNCC writing resource center. I specialize in test prep and have helped students increase their Reading SAT scores by over 100 points! I have helped seniors write college essays, have prepared nervous middle school clients for the EOGs, and have also tutored students in Spanish, Algebra, and History.

When I meet with your child, I assess and listen in order to tailor lessons to the most appropriate skill level. I use both school texts and my own supplementary coursework, and I do assign homework. Most importantly, I track student progress through careful record keeping. I target both weaknesses and strengths, and you will be able to see your child's progress through every exercise your child does with me.

I currently have openings on Saturday afternoons in Matthews. I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy.

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.

Algebra 1

I had the opportunity to take Honors Algebra and AP Calculus in high school. In addition to helping me succeed on the SAT, these classes also taught me skills that I would need in college classes like Microeconomics and Physics. When I teach Algebra, I teach concepts and skills and provide plenty of extra practice.

Bible Studies

A graduate of a Christian School, I am familiar with the typical Bible Studies requirements at independent schools. I have studied The Book extensively, and am able to help students understand themes, context, and significance.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught sixth grade language arts in Winston Salem, and I can help students navigate the new Common Core objectives. As a current tutor at a local agency, I often help students prepare for their EOGs, raise their grades, and get two days ahead of their classmates.

English

After completing my student-teaching internship at North Mecklenburg high school, I spent three years teaching English at the middle and high school levels. I am familiar with the Common Core Objectives and the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, the EOG and EOC tests, and the senior exit project.

GRE

I scored a 169 on the verbal section of the GRE, and I have taught reading tests ever since I was an undergrad. The strategies I teach are reminiscent to those I use in the SAT. My students will master vocabulary, writing, and reading comprehension.

ISEE

I have tutored students in the ISEE test at a local tutoring agency. My strategy involves reviewing test-taking strategies, practice from actual tests, and, of course, homework.

Prealgebra

I was an honors math student in high school, and have since tutored students in PreAlgebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry, and SAT Math. I taught middle and high school for three years and am familiar with the Common Core standards to help students navigate them and get two days ahead of their classmates.

SAT Math

As a tutor at a local tutoring agency, I have often helped students understand the strategies necessary to excel on SAT Math section. I will help students identify the type of question, come up with a strategy, and see patterns in number sets. Most importantly, I provide real practice both in class and for homework that the student can use to master the test.

SAT Reading

I tutor daily in SAT strategies and practice. I made an 800 on the reading section myself, and have helped students raise their reading scores by over 100 points. When I teach the SAT, You can expect to do a lot of practice both in class and for homework.

Spanish

I took Spanish for six years in middle school and high school, and I took AP Spanish my senior year. The skills I learned helped me with my studies in Hmong and Chinese after graduation. When I tutor in Spanish, I help students understand the mechanics of the language: syntax, agreement, tense, diction, etc.

SSAT

I have since helped many students prepare for both the ISEE and SSAT. When I work with students, I provide plenty of practice, review test-taking strategies, and I do assign homework, which typically consists of practice sections and vocabulary lists, both directly from the test.
