Hi! I'm Kendra, an enthusiastic and passionate academic! I'm presently a Masters student with Empire State University, focusing on gender studies and writing. I double majored in undergrad with History and Theatre and have spent the past 3 years as a nanny. Patience and persistence come with the job, and that's what I want to bring to you! I have a great deal of experience with analytic and creative writing, as well as public speaking and research. Whether your needs fall under the heading of social studies, language arts, admissions essays, or test prep, I want to help you succeed!

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.

ACT English

The ACT English requires certain test taking strategies combined with an aptitude for the material. I can help you hone both of these aspects whilst gaining personal confidence. These tests are important, they are stepping stones to your goals. I would be honored to help you get there.

American History

I relished my AP American History course in High School and received a 5/5 as a reward for my efforts. History is alive for me and can be so for all students. Hard work and whimsy go hand in hand when unearthing the realities of those who came before us. I am honored to help you or your loved ones gain confidence in our histories, emboldened not dwarfed (or bored!!) by those who've come before.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am proficient in elementary learning-- most specifically Reading, Writing, and the Social Sciences. I would love to make myself more credible to clients. I can excel as a tutor of grammar and comprehensive reading techniques, world and American history is a another area of strength. I am competent with basic alegbra and science.

English

English has been a true love of mine since I began school. The coursework is colorful and has room for everybody. If you need help standing tall in a room with Shakespeare, Austen, Milton, Burgess or even Dr. Seuss I would be honored to aid in your journey. The English language is fascinating, yet understandably confusing -- you can master it, I can help.

Public Speaking

I am a highly trained actor which indicates both my confidence in public speaking and my control over my physical instrument. I know how to connect with an audience and make a persuasive point understood. I have experience with debate and class presentations as well as my time honing my voice as an actor. Give me a speech, I will embody it. Give me a student I will embolden him.

SAT Reading

I took the SAT Reading back when it was an elective measure. I knew this was the type of entrance exam I could succeed in and so I volunteered for this extra trial. My goal is to help any student enter his or her exam with the same level of comfort and confidence. These tests are important, they are stepping stones to your goals. I would be honored to help you get where you want to be.

Social Studies

I excel with American and Global Histories. I had great success with APs and Regents exams in both fields back in high school and continued on to gain an undergrad degree in History. I also know how to temper such knowledge to the needs of the student so as not to overwhelm unnecessarily. From the Ancient Mesopotamians to Marin Luther to the Marshall Plan I am ready and willing to aid today's student.

Study Skills

I know what not to do, and I know what to do. Most importantly I know the value of finding what works for the individual. I am currently getting my Masters Degree from Empire State College which is entirely independent work. There are no classrooms nor teachers breathing down my neck. If I want to succeed I have to find my path to it. I know how essential focus and confidence are in the academic journey and I want to help students find their own.
