The ASVAB test is like no other in the world. It not only helps to determine what your future with the military might be, but also has a high probability of determining the career you are in for the rest of your life!
I am a tutor for most of the academic pursuits and have a love for teaching, but as you know, familiar academics are just a small part of this test! In other ways I was shaped to help you show your best on the ASVAB is by helping you in "other" areas like mechanics, shop, electronics ect.
I gained experience in those areas through my professional career. I cut my teeth in the private sector doing physical IT work and communication systems where I learned about electronics information and comprehension. Now, I manage an automotive repair shop and have been working as an full spectrum automotive mechanic for several years (not just service and b tech).
I have the academic and real world experience to help you show the recruiting officers how great you are and the potential you have!
Math can be confusing and frustrating even at the elementary level.
At the beginning of first grade we expect all children to be able to count to 100 by ones, twos, fives, and tens.
In two short years students are expected to know place holders, decimal points, polynumeral addition and subtraction, as well as simple multiplication and division.
Three years later they are expected to be doing algebra.
This is a lot to absorb and comprehend in a very short period of time, and if your child starts slipping on these academic building blocks before algebra, there is a chance he or she will never be able to stay on pace with their classmates.
I have seen the struggles of elementary students through the years and I have helped all of them not only reach their required steps, but to excel beyond their grades and help to teach them not only their lesson today, but enable them to think mathematically so they can learn new concepts quickly and easily.
English is the biggest building block in not only writing, but also helps reading comprehension, speaking, and communication skills.
I have tutored many people from elementary school to college in English. Whether your struggles are with simple concepts like verbs and nouns, or more complex areas in collegiate level minutia, I have the tools, knowledge, and experience to help you.
I never thought I liked phonics. As a child I hated the time we spent on that subject in class.
Now I have learned to love it.
Over the years of public speaking and tutoring public speaking and speech for international college students, I have learned that freeing the natural voice through phonics is the key to effective verbal communication and in raising the confidence and self-esteem of the speaker.
I learned that phonics is no single thing- I have studied both the freeing of the voice and the movements of the tongue, the position of the tongue, and the transitions needed to and use them all to help students understand phonics and how crucial it is to further development.
Anyone can preach diphthongs and guttural stops, but you first have to understand why we make these noises, how we make these noises, and how to effectively manage both our literal memory and our muscle memory to produce a polished, articulate, and enunciated person who has a firm understanding of phonics and I have a great deal of experience in all of these areas through my tutoring of both young children and adults.
In writing, phonics is crucial for learning to read and write properly. I have taught several people over the years from young children to international college students phonics in the written form, including letter sounds, blends, diphthongs, monophthongs, and vowel placement issues to help the reader and speaker successfully navigate even onomatopoeic words with ease and understanding.
Phonics is a key step in all future reading and speech development for everyone.
I have always been a natural public speaker. After my first mock debate in high school I developed a passion for public speaking and studied it extensively.
In college my abilities gave me my first leadership role as the council president and gave me a coveted internship with a state senator.
Professionally, my public speaking skills enabled me to give several addresses and presentations to potential clients, both direct and business.
I have tutored students in the art and science of public speaking in the past regarding both confidence and technique.
I have played trumpet for over twenty years. I played with an award winning marching band, a jazz/wedding band, and a rock band.
I have tutored several students over the years and at least one of my former students has a career playing for a cruise line.
I have both love and experience in teaching people to write well and effectively. I teach both the technical side of writing as well as the creative side for people of all ages and levels.
In addition to tutoring people, I have also been the lead writer for a periodical, a first draft novel editor, a technical article writer, and I am a published poet.
In today's world of technical reports, blogs, websites, text messaging, and emails, more and more communication is being done in the written form. Because of this swing to the written word, being a great and technical writer is the most obvious way to set yourself apart from everyone else.
Writing is the number one way your children will be graded in school, both now and in the future. Creating a writer who is not only technically competent, but also has the ability to put their thoughts onto paper in an effective manner will have the greatest tools to excel not only in school, but also in life.
