Accounting

I have a BS and a MS in Accounting and Information Management. I have also tutored college students in introductory accounting along with intermediate accounting.

I have two years experience in public accounting and do tax accounting for a catering company.

ACT Math

Assess, strategize, and implement proven techniques that will help students perform well on the math section of the ACT.

ADD/ADHD

I have tutored several high school students (ages 15 all the way to early 40s) in the Dallas metroplex (Rockwall and Garland) in English and in Algebra. All of those students have received an "A" in his or her course. I have helped them be successful in their classes/courses.

My strategy was to always be very brief in my explanation of the concept and focus on his or her kin esthetic ability or desire (the desire to move while learning). I accomplished this by showing an example of a problem and then having him or her simulate what I have just done. This worked very well for all of the ADD/ADHD students that I have had.

I approach each student and determine what in particular causes their attention deficiency. I hone in on this and make learning fun and steer away from techniques that are "boring" to them which, as a result, may trigger their ADD/ADHD.

Algebra 1

I have extensive experience in this subject as I have aced this class in both high school and college.

I enjoy teaching the foundational principles of Algebra that are necessary to be successful in this course.

I focus on comprehension of the concepts and application of knowledge.

I have experience preparing students for the ASVAB and have successfully helped a number of students pass this test.

I hope you give me the opportunity to help you. Thank you!

I am a former student-athlete that played basketball at Mesquite High School, The University of Texas at Dallas, and The Pro-Am circuit (semi-pro).

I have also coached in numerous leagues in the metroplex and have directed basketball camps.

Business

I have a breadth of knowledge in the business industry as I have worked in Corporate America and various aspects (marketing, accounting, non-profit, sales, etc.) for eight years and counting.

I have experience preparing and developing skills to be successful in these areas and beyond. I know the skills that are business leaders, recruiters, and managers look for in prospective employees.

I have a master's in accounting from The University of Texas at Dallas and an MBA from The University of Central Florida.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored numerous elementary students in reading, math, writing, and English. I am currently working with a number of students and have increased their comprehension and math techniques. I believe that I have the ability and the personality to truly nurture students of this age and help them learn the concepts that they are struggling with.

This is one of the most fundamental math course in a student's education. I focus on the basics and build up from there.

I like to ensure that the student doesn't memorize the concept but retains and can apply appropriately.

I am very patient with students that are hard at hearing and/or need more detailed instruction and help with their classes.

I have worked with a student in the past who had difficulty hearing and I emphasized a system that allowed the student to utilize her other senses (such as sight and touch) to compensate for her deficiency in hearing.

I utilize unique strategies and various skills to identify a student's weaknesses. I am able to assess the weaknesses based on a diagnostic that I provide during our first lesson. I then implement strategic techniques to ensure students' comprehend the material.

I focus on illustrating the certain "traps" and "pitfalls" that students can fall into (for example: not reading the problem correctly or not answering the right question). I do this so that students can recognize these incorrect answers for various questions as they go throughout this course.

I focus on illustrating the certain "traps" and "pitfalls" that students can fall into (for example: not reading the problem correctly or not answering the right question). I do this so that students can recognize these incorrect answers and avoid them.

Another component that I address, is quickly getting the correct answer. The STAAR exam is a test where you have to move quickly in order to get through all of the sections and questions.

Study Skills

I have mentored and tutored numerous college and high school students on how to master study skills (time management, organization, discourage procrastination, etc.) in order to be as successful and efficient as possible in school.

I am currently doing some non-profit work that focuses on the overall development and preparedness of local youth.

Excellent in Every Way!!! — Simone is the answer to our prayers!! She has been most helpful in so many ways. My daughter LOVES her to death!!
