Essay writing can be challenging for young writers. I have written hundreds of essays. It's always been a pleasure to receive a grade of A on an essay; however, it is even more enjoyable to receive a direct deposit for a winning scholarship essay! Yes, it can make all the difference when funding your own education. There are thousands of scholarship opportunities and most of them require... read more
Vicki N.'s Resources
My first grade student blew me away today. He not only read the word, 'interesting,' all by himself -- but he also knew exactly how many syllables it has! After a full year tutoring, we have a great connection and each weekly session has its surprises. I find I learn from my students, just as they learn from me. Age does not seem to matter, each individual has his or her own personality... read more
Now is a great time to pursue your dream. Why not study what interests you? It is never too late to make a decision to start a new career. Perhaps you would like to start a new business? Being an entrepreneur is great. There has not been a better time for me to pursue higher education than in this season of life. Returning to college to complete my education has been one of the best decisions... read more
Proofreading and editing one's own paper for a high school or college English course can be challenging. Sometimes one just needs a second pair of eyes. A tutor will often see the weaknesses in a writing assignment and point them out to a student. Like any teacher, making red marks on a student's paper doesn't necessarily help a student improve his or her writing skills. Working side by side,... read more

It was the Fall of 2009 and the economy left many of us unemployed for the first time ever! I'm SO glad I LOST MY FULL TIME JOB. Just like that, the corporate world is cruel, they pulled the rug right out from under me! I only got 1 week of notice too!!! It doesn't matter how great your severance package is, it is no fun to have your life turned upside down without giving you time to process... read more
If you are in the preliminary stage working toward applying for a nursing program, I would love to meet you! I know it is hard work taking the courses you are studying and completing all requirements needed to make your application. Since 2010 I've studied biology, chemistry, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, in depth. These are not the easiest subjects to learn, especially if you are returning... read more

I am blessed to be her son's private tutor and look forward to working with him each week. We began focusing on this bright... read more

Hi George, There are a couple of ways you can learn the differences between plant and animal cells. You can set up a comparison grid and list which of the exterior structures (eg. cell wall, cell membrane, flagella/cilia) and interior structures are applicable to each type of cell. For...
Most online classes require a minimum of one proctored examination. With the increased risk of academic dishonesty, some instructors and professors require multiple proctored exams. I recently completed a 100% online Introduction to Oceanography course. The professor (of Florida Institute of Technology and BCC) required three proctored exams for the course. These tests included two mid-terms... read more
I thoroughly enjoy tutoring subjects that appear in bold print on my profile. As time permits, I will be adding the subjects which are not bolded. As a student or parent seeking a qualified or certified tutor, look for the bold subjects listed on tutor profiles. The non-bolded subjects are those which the tutor is interested in completing the certification exams. During my winter break from... read more
Every parent would like their child to be excited about reading. Children learn through repetition and will often ask a parent to read a favorite bedtime story again. Being a parent can be exhausting, exhilarating and rewarding. Witnessing a child's first attempt to read can be excruciatingly difficult. As parents, we instinctively want to assist our children with everything they do. We read... read more
