I am currently a college instructor looking for additional opportunities to assist students in their educational endeavors. Are you an adult who is returning to school or work after an extended absence? Are you the parent of a child that needs a tutor who can patiently work with their student through the tears and frustration of the seemingly impossible? Are you a high school or college student that needs individual attention to answer your specific questions? Do you need assistance applying for college and financial aid? Let me use my education, experience, and compassionate instruction style to help you gain the confidence and abilities to succeed!
I have been an instructor of developmental writing at a community college for several years. Additionally, I have extensive experience working as a tutor of a variety of subjects on the junior high, high school, and college levels. Subjects that I have extensively tutored are all levels English writing, reading, and literature; technical and creative writing; computer skills; business writing (such as resumes, college, job, and scholarship applications, and cover letters); GED, SAT, and ACT test preparation; developmental math and Algebra. My professional experience also includes work in college advising and finances and assisting students with understanding the process of applying, registering and paying for college. I have worked with students from a variety of different backgrounds and learning levels including: older adults returning to school after extended absences, remedial and developmental level learning, advanced and honors level children and teenagers, working adults, ESL, and special needs.
I have a Master of Arts degree with a 3.91 GPA from Baylor University in Church-State Studies, a unique interdisciplinary degree program incorporating courses in communications, rhetoric, political science, and sociology. I also have bachelors degrees in both English and Religion with a 3.9 GPA. Additionally, I spent a summer at the prestigious University of Oxford studying English Literature and Philosophy. MY ACT score was in the 98th percentile (31 out of 36), and my SAT score was in the 93rd percentile (1350 out of 1600). I am Microsoft Office Certified in Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Access.
I would characterize myself as a detailed, energetic, confident, and honest instructor/tutor. I truly enjoy helping students by equipping them with the confidence and skills to achieve their academic goals. Listening and discerning specific needs and then addressing them directly is important to my method of teaching. I am very patient and understanding, set attainable goals and hold my students accountable. I pride myself with establishing good working relationships with my students by equipping them with all the tools necessary to achieve academic success.
Please feel free to contact me through WyzAnt for any additional information of my experience, education, or references. I look forward to working with you!
