About April

I come from a family of lawyers and educators. I am trained as an attorney. I have been correcting the written assignments of friends and family members for as long as I can remember. I am able to precisely ascertain the area(s) of difficulty when assessing a student. I am able to clearly explain a concept in a variety of ways to ensure understanding. In addition, I employ a variety of methods to help others remember the concepts that are being taught. When necessary, I also utilize visual aids. I truly try to determine the individual's learning style and teach to that learning style which usually results in an increased confidence level in the student which ALWAYS leads to success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taken and passed the PRAXIS I, which is the basic certification for teaching. I have a law degree and I have substitute taught in elementary and middle schools before.
I am extremely familiar with a variety of reading strategies. I am also good at explaining math and math related concepts in a myriad of ways until a student fully understands. And finally, I am able to assist in honing critical study skills and writing skills so that students will be more successful academically.

Praxis

I have recently taken the Praxis and am waiting on my final scores (2/2/12). However, since I took the test via computer, I know my results for the Reading and Math sections of Praxis I. I scored a 185 in Reading and 189 in Math. The Praxis I scores range from 150-190. I am still waiting on my scores from the writing section.

Spanish

I took Spanish in 8th grade and continued through senior year in high school when I took and passed the Spanish AP exam, allowing me to test out of the introductory Spanish classes in college. I completed a Spanish minor while at Duke University, and I spent a semester in Madrid, Spain during the fall of my senior year in college.
