With experience as a teacher's assistant and research assistant at the university level and a variety of editing experience (scholarly book chapters, an article for a non-profit, and young adult novellas), I am an excellent tutor for your writing and language arts quandaries. Whether you have an elementary-aged child needing help with reading or you are a university student wanting to improve your paper-writing skills, I am the tutor for you. I scored a 5 on the AP English Language exam, passed the Literature CLEP test with a score of 79/80, and scored in the 98th percentile on the GRE Qualitative (English) section and in the 93rd percentile on the Writing section. You are in capable, experienced hands with the tutor whom an Oxford don called "one of the best writers I've ever seen."

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.

Ballroom Dancing

I took two years of ballroom dancing lessons in high school and was one of the best in the class. I danced the lead role in my high school's musical production my senior year. I also took swing dancing lessons in college and was twice selected for the swing club's performance team.

Bible Studies

I have a minor in Biblical Studies from Azusa Pacific University, a college accredited by WASC (the Western Association of Schools and Colleges). I have taken in-depth courses in both Old and New Testaments; some include "Honors Exodus and Deuteronomy," "Honors Hebrew Poetical and Wisdom Literature," "Life and Teachings of Jesus," and "Romans and Galatians." I received grades of A or A- in all seven Bible classes I took. I have also taken classes in theology and church history, which are often incorporated into schools' Bible classes.

Geography

Want to learn geography from someone with firsthand knowledge? Besides studying geography in school to get the facts and figures, I have lived overseas for more than 13 years and can share stories and history to help you remember all those places and flags. I also have three years' experience working with international students at university, learning the customs and culture of their home countries. My favorite countries? India, Chad, Belgium, and England!

Religion

I have a degree in Christian Ministries and a minor in Biblical Studies. I have also taken classes in theology, church history, philosophy, and anthropology. I was a Teacher's Assistant for an undergraduate course in the Practical Theology department and a Research Assistant to another professor in the same department. In addition, I have spent a significant amount of time overseas (especially in Africa) and have first-hand knowledge of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

Theatre

I have performed and assisted backstage with five high school and community youth theatre productions to date. I took mime and improv classes in high school and an "Introduction to Theatre" class at university. I played the female leads in "The Mouse That Roared" and "The Promenade" during my junior and senior years of high school, respectively. For those performances, I received the award for Artistic Expression in Drama, becoming the only student ever to get the award two years in a row.

Writing

As a research assistant to a university professor, I edited academic book chapters for organization and content. I have also edited two young adult novellas and a scholarly article for a non-profit. I earned a 5 on the AP English Language exam and scored in the 93rd percentile on the GRE writing section.
