I have a Bachelor's degree with a major in math. I taught Algebra 1 to my own children as part of their home education, and I have tutored numerous other students in this subject.
I have a bachelor's degree in math from Wesleyan University.
I tutored/taught two fifth-graders for a year. Both of them were being home schooled, and I handled their math education.
For the past three and a half years, I have been a tutor at a private institution. Although I am qualified to tutor at the middle and high school levels and do have students at those levels, I have been given a lot of elementary school students (K-6) because I seem to do particularly well with them and they seem to like me (see my first blog entry). I have taught reading, writing, and math to literally all of the K-6 grade levels.
I have a bachelor's degree in math and I have worked with a number of students at the elementary level of math.
I have a bachelor's degree in math, and I got 100% on the WyzAnt proficiency test for geometry.
I have worked with younger students (4th through 6th grades) in the area of geometry, and I have covered geometry material in depth with students preparing for the SAT and ISEE.
Over the past three and a half years, as a tutor with C2 Education, I have prepared several students for the Lower Level and Middle Level of the ISEE. These students ended up doing very well on the test and were admitted to the private school of their choice.
I am very familiar with the four multiple-choice sections of the test and the differences between the lower and middle levels. I know how to teach the students strategies to help them do well in each section of the test.
I also work with students on the essay part of the test, giving them guidelines and practice writing prompts and then going over their drafts with them.
I have been using Microsoft Outlook for at least five years.
I retrieve and send mail, with and without attachments. I regularly customize my emails with fonts of various sizes and colors. I save drafts of emails if I'm not ready to send them yet and retrieve them when I am ready to make my final edits and send them.
I manage my emails by setting up rules for putting emails into folders. I know how to sort my emails by date, sender, etc. I know how to search for specific emails and I know how to delete one or more emails.
I also make extensive use of the calendar function. I regularly set up reminders, both one-time and recurring, for doctor appointments, bill payments, family events, and many other things. I know how to set the amount of time between the reminder and the actual event.
I studied music at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music for two years and then transferred to the Indiana University School of Music where I received a Bachelor's degree in Music Performance.
At both schools, I took comprehensive, four- credit, introductory courses in the history of music, covering the earliest forms of music all the way through to 20th century music. I also took two semester classes entitled "Music in the Classic Era" and "Music in the 20th Century."
When I was homeschooling my four children, I taught enrichment classes in a homeschool co-op, including a course for middle and high school students entitled "Music through the Ages," which was a quick tour through the Pre-Baroque, Baroque, Classic, Romantic, and twentieth century periods of music. We talked about the characteristics of each style of music and listened to samples of music from each time period.
I have a Bachelor of Music degree (B.M.) in bassoon performance from the Indiana University School of Music.
From fourth grade through high school, I played the flute in school bands, took private lessons, and participated in solo competitions, where I received superior ratings. I was invited to be in the All-State Band during my sophomore year of high school.
I went to a boarding school for my last two years of high school, where I continued to take lessons, performed solos during the chapel time, and played for the school musicals.
In college, I majored in math, but on a whim decided to take bassoon lessons during my senior year. Since I already had a strong background in a wind instrument, I was able to progress quickly.
After college, I got a job as a computer programmer, which I really liked, but after two years, I felt restless and decided to get a second bachelor's degree in music.
During my adult life, I have not pursued music professionally, but music has continued to be a big part of my life. I have taught private flute lessons and group recorder classes, as well as group choir chime classes (similar to handbells). I also directed the pre-school choir at my church and taught pre-school music classes for two different Mother's Day Out programs.
I homeschooled my four children and wanted to make sure that we used a phonics-based curriculum for learning to read. I used the Adventures in Phonics program from Christian Liberty Press. I found it to be very thorough and well-organized, with just the right amount of review. It provided a great foundation in reading for all of my children.
In my tutoring with C2 Education over the past three and a half years, I have worked on phonics with students in grades K-3, using the Spectrum Phonics series. With students in grades 4-6, I have used the word study sections of the Spectrum Phonics series.
I have a bachelor's degree in math, and I got 100% on the WyzAnt proficiency test for Pre-algebra.
I have worked with numerous students in the area of Pre-algebra, both in a formal work setting (tutoring center) and in informal settings (people's homes).
I have a Bachelor's degree in math and got 100% on the WyzAnt Precalculus proficiency test.
I helped a college student pass her College Algebra class, which she was failing before I started working with her. Her College Algebra class was very similar to a precalculus class.
I have a bachelor's degree with a major in math. I got 100% on the WyzAnt proficiency test for SAT math, and I also got 100% on the math sections when I took an SAT as a part of the hiring process for my current job. The tutoring center where I work only accepts tutors who score in the top 5%. A major focus of the center is enabling students to significantly increase their SAT score.

The center only hires tutors who score in the top 5% on the SAT. When I took an SAT as part of the hiring process, I did not miss any of the questions in the reading sections.
