I am a 54 year-old Christian woman who successfully home-schooled her three daughters for 10 years (all subjects through high school) and also home-schooled/tutored two other girls for their 7th and 8th grade years. I have experience tutoring elementary math, high school writing and English literature, biology, algebra, geometry, accounting, anatomy, and U.S. history, as well as all middle school subjects. My specialty is GED test prep. Many of my students have had IEPs or learning challenges. I enjoy discovering their needs and best methods for allowing them to succeed.
Prior to homeschooling, I worked as a public accountant for several years before moving into the corporate world, where I was the general ledger accountant for a multi-million dollar bulk handler of oil, tallow, caustic soda, etc. I then moved into management for an electric utility company for 11 years before settling into home-schooling.
All 3 of my children had different learning styles (visual, auditory, and tactile), and the two other students I home-schooled for 7th and 8th grades both had learning disabilities. In the first year, they went from testing two to four years below grade level to testing above grade level on their CAT tests by the end of the year.
My expertise is in identifying my students' strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles to quickly tailor my lessons to suit their needs. Thus, time is not wasted, and my students stay engaged and enthusiastic.
I have an extensive library of books, curriculum, software, and educational games. We moved 65 book boxes with us recently to our new home. I have a passion for teaching and for children/young people. I would welcome the opportunity to mentor and teach you or your child for success, as well as instill a love of learning. I would be happy to discuss your needs and what I can offer.
Most students find Algebra so easy once it is properly taught for understanding. In order to succeed, math facts and foundational concepts must be mastered first, and we can do that quickly and easily with my programs. I have considerable experience teaching Algebra to a variety of ages and students with different learning styles. Math can become enjoyable again!
I have a BA in Businees with a concentration in Accounting. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and am a member of the Phi Beta Kappa National Honor Society. I have worked for a Public Accounting firm, as well as on the managerial Accounting Staff of a multi-million dollar bulk handler. In addition, I worked for years for a public utility directed under the VP of Operations as a high level multi-department manager. Most recently, I have been a homeschool mother and private tutor. I have experience tutoring numerous Business courses at the college level.
I homeschooled my three children for all subjects through high school, beginning in third grade. In addition, I have tutored a first grade boy in Math through the second grade, as well a third grade girl in Math. I was commended by her teacher, who recommended me to another parent, who also used me to help their son. I tutored him into the sixth grade for Math, Science, Language Arts, and only occasionally for Social Studies. I am very familiar with the SC standards by grade and am more than qualified to teach them. I have an extensive educational library. I am skilled at adjusting lessons to the level of the child, presenting materials in a fun, engaging manner, and offering encouragement as needed.
I have numerous prep books, plus assessment tests, and access to an online video and interactive teaching program. I have helped 5 individuals study for their test, and have experience teaching all 5 of the GED subject test areas. I can guide you in ways to help you study and practice on your own to save you money, or I can be your sole source of instruction, depending on your needs. I tailor to each students learning style, schedule, and budget. My goal is for you to succeed!
Are you in need of a Geometry tutor for summer school, high school,or for a college class? Besides teaching my own 3 girls and another student in our home school, I also tutored the older sibling of one of my regular students to help her get a high enough grade on her final exam for Geometry to pass for the year. We spent 2 1/2 hours with some video lessons I have, along with some intensive practice exercises. She made an 85% on her final exam (second highest in her class, actually)and passed the class. She commented that she learned more in that 2 1/2 hours than she had in the first half of the entire year.
I have also tutored Geometry over the summer, helping a rising 12th grader with 2 online credit recovery courses: one for English, and the other for Geometry. He was able to pass both with A's and move on to 12th grade.

I have considerable experience helping middle school students recover their poor math grades. I have found the most common problem is that the math facts were never mastered, especially upper times tables. I have an award winning program I use to help students quickly and almost effortlessly learn them.
I also give an assessment test to determine learning gaps. Common problems are long division, all fraction operations, and the relationship between ratios or proportions, fractions, decimals and percents. Once facts are mastered, these once daunting concepts become fairly easy.
I have many worksheets, texts, computer programs and apps to help with various learning styles.
I have successfully tutored a woman for this test. It is quite similar to the GED test, which I have tutored numerous times. The Science for this test is a bit more involved than the GED, but I am certified and have taught high school Sciences. I have the ATI Study Guide for the TEAS, as well as the McGraw-Hill practice test books as resources to share.
Great tutor! — Paula was a great tutor! She was always prepared and brought extra printouts or had websites for my daughter to help her beyond the notes and book work from school. Unfortunately, Paula moved and we had to find another tutor. I would highly recommend Paula for anyone looking for a tutor! ...
