I am a graduate of Temple University with a Bachelor's of Arts within Political Science and a Certificate within the Specialization of Writing. I have over 15 years of experience with children. I've taught writing techniques, grammar, and etiquette. I've received First Place within Temple University's Freshman essay contest, First Place within the Goals for Youth essay contest and I was published within Authors of Tomorrow in 2006. I have been writing books since I was eight years old and taught myself how to read at the age of 4. I've received the Creative Writers award in 2000, the History level I award in 2000, and a Math Award in 2003. I graduated number 20 within my high school graduating class of over 150 students.

My tutoring approach using hands on learning. When a student can use, see and apply what they've learned in a physical manner it is more likely they will retain information successfully. I've tutored English by proofreading, editing and allowing the student to read their material aloud. This method allows the student to hear their writing and critique it as it sounds different aloud. I believe in teaching by breaking down a problem step by step. A student will most likely understand the fundamentals of a problem if they know how each piece works. Looking at a problem as a whole can confuse or overwhelm a student.

I am also a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer. Health and exercise are also a strong part of success. If a student is healthy they will most likely be able to focus more and retain information. I can provide a healthy eating guide, exercise tips and motivational techniques to help your student grow. Foods that lack nutrients can alter the chemical balance of the brain causing depression, fatigue and lack of concentration. Good diet and exercise is the first step in academic success.

I am currently training to receive my black belt within the Korean martial art of Tang Soo Do. I assist within class helping the younger, less experienced students. My teaching methods include breaking down the movements of the art, slow physical guides and written materials.

I would love to work with your student and provide them with the tools for success. Time, patience and knowledge are the keys to obtaining this success.

Career Development

In addition to being a Temple graduate, I've also gradated from a Vocational Technical school which applied heavy emphasis upon career training and development. I took courses in resume and cover letter writing, entrepreneurship, and mock interview sessions. During my enrollment in Temple, I took business writing, cover letter and resuming writing classes as well. I am also a Certified Writer through Temple. I am confident within my abilities to successfully coach an inspiring individual within the areas of career development.

Cooking

In addition to having a passion and enjoyment for cooking, I have been cooking for over 6 years. I've completed a cooking class and expanded my knowledge by creating my own recipes. I've also studied a nutrition course to supplement my Personal Fitness Certification which has helped educate me on how to cook healthy meals. I have the knowledge and hands on experience to educate on how to cook as well as expanding that to include healthy cooking.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a graduate of Temple University and Camden County Technical Schools, I have a vast field of knowledge within all subjects. I have tutored two children within the K-6 level in all major subjects. Each student increased their grades by 1 or 2 marks respectfully. I have years of experience working with children and a creative edge in helping them become more interested in their work. I've won the History I award, several essay contests, and academic awards throughout my high school and college years. I love educating others no matter their age for knowledge is timeless.

Fitness

I am a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer through the AAAI fitness certification program. I have studied and mastered the importance of eating well and proper exercise techniques. I've taken an Aerobics course during college where I've studied proper stretching and workout techniques. I've attended other exercise classes and wrote reviews based upon their teaching techniques. I am also an active participant within the new dance craze, Zumba, both in class and at home. Lastly, I am currently enrolled within the martial art of Tang Soo Do where I have been training for over two years. I am testing to receive my black belt shortly.

Martial Arts

I am currently enrolled within Tang Soo Do, a Korean Martial Art at a Black Belt Accredited school in New Jersey. I am a 1st degree black belt. I have won eleven tournaments with 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place trophies in all divisions such as sparring (free fighting), forms and weapons. I have been studying martial arts for over three years and have assisted in class teaching beginning and intermediate students.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Microsoft Outlook for over three years during my employment as a secretary at a law firm. I've spent countless hours navigating and training myself to use this program which was new for me. I have mastered adding custom folders to the toolbar, filing addresses/managing address book and adding attachments to e-mails. These are just a few examples of what I have learned. Our firm heavily relies upon outlook as its primary e-mail source and it is used on a daily basis.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using and navigating Microsoft Windows for almost 20 years. I began using Windows when its version 3.1 was released. I am proficient within 3.1, 95, 98, & XP. My job currently uses XP on an everyday basis. I have also used XP during my administrative assistant classes in Technical school for three years. Overall, I have used XP for 10 years as my primary Windows software. I am working on mastering Windows 7.

Nutrition

I am a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer through the AAAI fitness certification program. I have studied and mastered the importance of eating well and proper exercise techniques. I've also took a nutrition class at Gloucester County College which inspired me to research more into proper nutrition. I have been maintaining a proper nutrition plan for over two years which has helped me maintain a healthy weight. I am confident I have the knowledge to educate within the field of nutrition.

Social Studies

With a Bachelor's in Political Science, I have extensive knowledge within Social Studies as social studies is a basis of history which is heavily saturated with politics. I was also the recipient of the History level I award in my freshman year of high school. This award recognized students with A+ averages within History/Social Studies. Last school year I tutored within social studies for a 5th grade student. I used visuals, real life examples and placed him within the center stage of social studies to have him gain an understanding of the events that occurred. Within my leisure, I follow politics and analyze the impacts of history upon today's society.

Study Skills

As a graduate of Temple University and Camden County Technical Schools, I have a vast field of knowledge within all subjects. I have tutored two children within the K-6 level in all major subjects. Each student increased their grades by 1 or 2 marks respectfully. I have years of experience working with children and a creative edge in helping them become more interested in their work which will develop better study habits. I've won the History I award, several essay contests, and academic awards throughout my high school and college years. I also have superb time management skills that I've used during my full-time enrollment at college to maintain my studies and two jobs. Time management is also key in developing good study skills so that the student can allot time for every subject without jeopardizing their grades. But first a student needs to gain an understanding of each subject to ensure they do not spend too much time on one subject they are struggling with and little to no time on other subjects. Study skills begin with effective tutoring in struggling subjects and then teaching the student how to delegate their time effectively. I love educating others no matter their age for knowledge is timeless.
