I'm well versed in Portuguese, English, Reading, Writing, and the language arts.

I have a degree in Psychology and a second minor in English as well. I am a writer of short stories and love literature. I've always scored high on the reading and writing sections of tests and feel capable of helping students with writing assignments and preparation for reading exams. I may help you by editing and revising papers as well.

I minored in Portuguese and Brazilian culture at the University of Mississippi. I speak, write, and read Portuguese, and am passionate about Brazilian literature and music. I completed a Portuguese Intensive in 2010 at FAAP in Brazil, and I spent this past year in Brazil honing my Portuguese skills, volunteering as a WWOOFer and teaching English.

I'm interested in tutoring because I think teaching is one of the most important jobs and I understand that one's schedule does not always lend them to be a full-time student. I am willing to work with your schedule and help you improve your skills in your desired subject.

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary math. In math, I think it's important that children see it in the way that helps them most. I try to help them find their way.


I am passionate about English, literature, and language arts. I minored in English at the University of Mississippi. I have taught English as a second language to Brazilians and like to tutor using creative and effective methods.


I taught English as a second language in Brazil. I use the direct method (speaking only in the target language, English, in this case) because it has been proven to be more effective.

Having learned a second language (Portuguese), I understand the way one's mind works in such a learning situation.

I found I learned quicker when I was only spoken to in the foreign language, so that is the way that I teach.


Portuguese Minor and studying Brazilian Literature.


I have excellent reading and comprehension skills. I am passionate about reading and think that everyone could benefit from learning how to read better and enjoy it.


I'm an avid reader, and am passionate about words. Communication is key in everything we do. I've studied literature, science, and art, and feel I have a substantial vocabulary in all of these subjects.


In college, I minored in English and took many writing courses. I am a writer of short stories as well.

Heather is Awesome! — We hired Heather for tutoring our 10 year old son. She was hired to help with reading and writing. She was great, always on time and took on extra homework help like science, history or whatever was needed. We LOVE her, she is very patient and kind. Our son loves her too. She is a keeper and well worth her money. I would highly recommend her. ...
