I remember how disassociated and bored I felt when I had difficulty understanding classwork in high school and junior high, so I understand the importance of helping students to understand (and not just memorize) the concepts that they are expected to learn.
In my last few years with WyzAnt, I have worked with several students achieve their goals. I have worked in depth to help one achieve an SAT score that would allow her admission in her preferred university. I successfully worked with many junior and senior high school students in math, science, social studies, and english because I was able to figure out their preferred learning style and adjust explanations and practice of class topics so that they understood. I work with students over the summer to prepare them for challenging upcoming courses. Also, I am very familiar with PA curriculum standards in the home school and cyber school spheres.
I would love to work with you and your student to achieve your academic goals. I am experienced with students from Kindergarten to College, and I approach every session to maximize a student's understanding and value. Please reach out to me if you or your student need an extra boost to succeed, we will form a great team!
A few years ago, I moved back to Central PA because of some family issues. Prior to that, I worked in many education-related jobs including teaching field trip groups at a museum. This provided me with a large amount of experience dealing with all age groups and learning styles, including but not limited to traditional public and private schools, Montessori programs, magnet programs, and home-school programs. I also have experience working with adults interested in everything from continuing education to GED prep. Additionally, I have successfully worked with groups of students who needed custom augmented programs because of learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and physical disabilities.
I have a BA in Anthropology and I am currently working towards my MA. My undergraduate training was in a four-field Anthropology program: biological/physical anthro, archaeology, cultural/social anthro, and archaeology. My graduate program is a three-field program, and I have presented papers of original research at regional, national, and international anthropology conferences.
While lately my focus has been on the archaeology subfield, because I work with recent sites (less than 200 years old) I still pull a great deal from cultural and political anthropological theory. Also, with my graduate assistantship, I have had myriad opportunities to work with paleo and forensic applications of biological anthropology.
I have a BA in anthropology with a focus on Archaeology and am currently working toward my MA in Anthropology with a focus on Historical Archaeology at the University of Tennessee. Also, between the two degrees, I worked for the National Park Service in Cultural Resource Management. On top of all this, I have presented at the Southeastern Archaeological Conference, the Society for Historical Archaeology, and the Society for Industrial Archaeology. Through my graduate assistantship I teach the basics of Tennessee Archaeology to students from kindergarten through high school already. I have contributed to a book on Tennessee Archaeology assembled by the University of Tennessee Anthropology Department, currently undergoing final edits before publication.
I really enjoy archaeology, which is why I chose to pursue it as a career choice. Through my many years in the field, I have become very familiar with method, theory, and history. I have extensive knowledge of artifacts from lithics (stone tools) up to bakelite (early 20th century plastic) and then some.
I feel odd typing about how I am qualified in public speaking. I feel like I should make a persuasive speech like I first learned in 8th grade. My job requires me to speak in front of large groups multiple times a day on varying topics to many different audiences. I might talk about dinosaurs with 2nd grade students, or I might discuss nuances of ancient Chinese ceramic manufacture with an interested senior group. I have even presented on my thesis topic, Industrial Archaeology, at national and international conferences filled with field experts.
I did not start as a superb public speaker, few people do, but I have learned the core of successful public speaking. First, be comfortable speaking in front of people. Second, be familiar with the material. Third, tailor the speech to the audience. While outlining these skills is simple, implementing them is rather difficult to new public speakers. I look forward to working with students, whether it is on polishing their speeches, on refining their presentation styles, or even on gaining confidence to speak in front of their peers.
I am working on my MA, so I have been known to study a great deal. Through my 20 years of education and counting, I have implemented many different study techniques, and I have been a part of many group study sessions. Additionally, as I am currently a museum educator, I must be flexible in my approach on subjects because not all students have similar learning styles.
I can assist students in creating a receptive study area, and I can work with parents in beneficial ways to assist their kids when approached for help. Also, I can work with the students in finding which study techniques work for them. Some learn best by rote memorization, others learn by doing, and others might learn best through visualizing problems or procedures. Still other students learn through more tactile means and need props to assist in studying. I have used all of these methods in different subjects through my learning career, and in this personal setting of tutoring I will be able to provide personal attention so that students can enjoyably learn their coursework.
Professional, personable, and patient — We have been very impressed with Elizabeth's work with our grandson in the cyber school environment. Our grandson is obviously very comfortable having her as his tutor and looks forward to her sessions with him. He is getting his work done in a timely manner and has been doing well on his check-for-understanding assessments. What he looked upon as a drudgery before has turned into something he h ...
