Elementary (K-6th)

I have an earned doctorate in education. I have also tutored children in the K-6 grade level. In addition, I have also taught several teacher preparation course, preparing people to become K-6 teachers.

English

I'm a college professor. My training (master’s degree and doctorate) is in developmental education, which focuses on teaching students to develop the skills necessary to excel in college. Some of the key skills that I have helped students build are in the following areas: English, grammar, proofreading, reading, writing, and vocabulary. In addition to publishing articles in journals, I have helped students develop articles for school and organizational publications. I have helped middle school students, high school students, and college students excel in school. I’m looking forward to helping you to be your very best.

Public Speaking

In 2006, I won the public speaking championship of North Carolina (Toastmasters International). Later that year, I placed 3rd in the semi-finals of the World Championship of Public Speaking. I am a professional speaker, consultant, and coach. As a professional speaker, I presented to audiences internationally (in Portugal). I have given over 10 presentations at various national conferences.

Study Skills

I have a master's and a doctorate in Developmental Education. This field of study focuses on helping students succeed in college. It's focus population is under-prepared college students, but the techniques of developmental education can be applied to high school and middle school students as well. Also, my cognate area for my master's degree is remedial reading (which is one of the primary study skills that under-prepared students typically need assistance with). In addition, while completing my graduate studies I spent three years as a GED instructor, helping students with study skills and the following content areas: math, reading, English, writing, social studies, and science.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
