PTS tutoring is focused on combining the goals of the parent, tutor, and student into one. The objective is to determine a plan, and create a method that will allow for every aspect of the plan to be addressed and achieved.
I have a passion for assisting others in achieving their goals, and dreams. I believe that goals and dreams can only be obtained with the proper focus and determination. A major part of that focus and determination is receiving the right education, and embracing it as much as possible. I make it a point to utilize my own skills and education to assist me in being an asset to assisting others in adapting to their educational needs. I currently hold a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with a major in General Business, and completed 12 hours of graduate level courses in an M.B.A. program. In terms of experience, I have served as a substitute teacher for a year, I have 5 years' experience working with children with learning disabilities, a year experience working in an alternative school setting (assisting in providing tutorial services), 5 years of experience in tutoring on an elementary school level, 3 years' tutorial experience on an undergraduate educational level, a year tutorial experience on a graduate educational level, and 10 years' experience teaching life skills to an individual that suffers from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I consider every encounter in life to be a learning experience, and the experiences that we become a part of play a large role in the perceptions we carry through life. I would like for you to allow me to assist you in meeting your educational goals. We can create a plan together that will allow for you excel beyond your imagination.

I have 6 years of experience in tutoring in grades K - 5. I consider K - 6th to be the grades in which our children need the most guidance, and every piece of information they receive is important. It is important to determine areas in which students struggle so that we can determine methods to assist them in their learning.
I have 6 years experience in Elementary Math and Reading studies. Elementary school is an important time for children to learn methods and concepts. It is my duty to find ways that will cater to the learning abilities of each child I tutor.

Being able to understand the principles of vocabulary is essential in having effective communication. I consider myself to be well educated in the area, because everything i do in life is based on vocabulary. A major part of understanding vocabulary is being able to identify words and determine the meanings based on context clues.
