I am currently teaching Psychology
at a local Houston college and, for 4 or 5 years, taught a class in Mass Communications at the University of North Carolina. I have also been a Psychotherapist in private practice for 25 years, and I feel very comfortable tutoring sociology
, study skills
, philosophy, public speaking
and helping students to increase communication skills, etc. (Even if those abstract subjects may not be where you need tutoring, I can always help you unravel learning blocks that take the form of procrastination, not investing in learning 100%, an inability to retain information, etc. We all come up with some creative reasons to underachieve).
When I got out of undergraduate school in Boulder, I spent 7 years working for KGO-TV, ABC Affiliate, where I worked on-camera all over the country and feel very comfortable tutoring speech
-writing and public speaking. I also work with children/adults who struggle with anxiety-related learning retention affecting self-esteem and academic relationships.
Lately, 50% of my students have been diagnosed with ADD, and I have finessed my tutoring around their learning style. I, too, have been diagnosed with Adult ADD -- clearly a key to going inside the students' struggles from a personal (non-academic) perspective. I love it!
I also, over the years with WyzAnt, have written law
depositions, helped a 6-year-old pass the STARR exam, helped write essays to enable pre-college students get accepted into the University of their choice, written an advertising campaign with a student seeking her MBA ... that's a small portion of what I have worked on this year with WyzAnt students. But, in truth, the best part of tutoring are the relationships I have built with students and their families over the years. These are really special collaborations.
