My kindergarten teacher's description of me was simple: "She likes to teach the other kids." From age 5 to now, there have been plenty of changes in my life but one constant has been my desire to help those who want to learn. In elementary school, I was the teacher's special helper and assisted her in grading classwork and helping other students with assignments. By high school, I served as an academic tutor and as a Big Sister to a neighboring school where I tutored a young boy. During college, I was the unofficial Expository writing tutor among various friends and associates because I was the only one that actually enjoyed the writing intensive course and excelled in it. Although I have law school aspirations, my time in college strengthened my critical reading and writing skills. That is where you come into play.
Ideally, you are someone who needs help in anything relating to writing, reading, grammar, or literature. Or you need help with history, law, or government.
I have degrees in both Communication and Political Science. I guess you could say I am pretty well versed in my subject areas.
My method of tutoring: I am rather no-nonsense in my approach. There is always a way to integrate fun during the lesson but I am extraordinarily focused when it comes to getting through material.
I pay attention to how one learns so do not be surprised if I make up a song as a way to remember the branches in American government or invent a poem to know when to use "your" and "you're." Everyone grasps things differently and you are paying for a personal and tailored experience.
If it helps, I plan to be an education lawyer so I will spend the rest of my life fighting for children to receive a quality education provided by the state. I went to private school my whole life and I am only too aware that not everyone can afford a costly education.
Hope to hear from you soon!
