In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have spoken at numerous college and university events at local high schools in my area for five years. At each, I have met with parents and students to discuss the college application process, standardized testing, timeline, and application materials. I have worked with the high schools to help future college students navigate the complicated and often stressful process.
I have a Masters of Sciences in Childhood Studies and have worked extensively with young children. I have developed learning programs for children aged 4-12, implementing inclusive and fun educational activities. I have also tutored elementary-aged students.
I have been a Macintosh user for many years and have trained a number of both Windows and non-computer users how to utilize Mac's many features and applications. I have tutored a wide age range, including young people and the elderly in both basics and advanced skills.
I have extensively used Microsoft Outlook in a professional capacity. I am proficient in email (including rules, folders, autoreply, etc), tasks, address book, calendar and meeting features. I have trained multiple coworkers (at varying computer literacy levels) in the utilization of these features.
I have used Microsoft Windows for 15 years, including Windows XP, Windows 7, and now Windows 8. I have used the operating system extensively in my professional life, and am well qualified in all user-end functions of Windows. I have taught a number of users how to utilize Windows' many features, from basics (settings, folders, etc) to administrative settings (setting up networks, programs, etc).
I have taken a number of courses in both my undergraduate and graduate studies that have required a public speaking component. Additionally, I have spoken often at large public events (even daily), including groups as large as 800 people for previous jobs. Not only do I speak in small and large settings regularly, but I have also trained a number of people to do the same, especially young people in the age range of 14-18.
I have taken all required SOLs in Virginia and passed all of them with near perfect scores (all passed advanced). Additionally, I have taken numerous standardized tests including SOLs, SATs, and APs. In addition to my own extensive training in test taking, I have also tutored students in test taking strategies.
I have taken a high number of advanced level courses in high school, including 13 AP courses while in high school. I also participated in a high number of extracurricular activities. Because of these time constraints, I adapted very strong study skills and methods to ensure that I did well in my academic courses. I finished my undergraduate degree in two years, balancing high level courses with internships and other activities. I have shared my study skills with many younger students in recent years and all have found the strategies helpful.
