While I do not hold a degree, I have extensive knowledge and proficiency in many subjects. In school I excelled in a variety of subjects, being fifth in my high school class with an average of 104.3. I was a member of the Math Counts team, and part of the winning Academic Rodeo at the East Texas State Fair. I was a first chair flute player for four years, and a competitive participant of One Act Play and Reader's Theater.
After my sophomore year, I left high school to attend the Texas Academy of Leadership in the Humanities, a program at Lamar University (in Beaumont, Texas) that would allow me to complete my first two years of college while also earning a high school diploma. I was forced to leave the program after the first year due to health problems, and obtain my GED. I have since been certified as a CNA (Certified Novell Administrator), a Certified Coding Associate (Medical coding and billing). I have taken courses in HTML and QuickBooks. I am a member in good standing of MENSA.
My greatest strengths are in English, grammar, reading, writing, and spelling. I was a reporter for the Lindale News and Times, with over 100 articles published. I have tutored in the past (mostly Math), and am quite capable in mathematics, especially algebra.
I have had excellent test scores, including the SAT. While I do not have a degree yet, I have a number of college hours, including everything from Economics and Government to Appreciation of the Humanities and Literature.
Despite my lack of degree, I am extremely capable with a wide variety of subjects, and I look forward to assisting with your tutoring needs.
Due to the somewhat inaccessible location of my home, I will be glad to come to you, or meet in a central location or library.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, and I look forward to meeting your educational needs!
