A Few Tutor Qualifications
I have 33 years experience working with children through various church owned Christian Kindergarten through 12th grade schools and as a teaching assistant in K through 6th grade private schools, and tutoring in after school programs help for students.
As a California teacher with 2 credentials, I passed the CBEST the first time I took it, and with 'flying colors'. My strategies for teaching students to pass this test include using practice tests (one at a time), correcting it, and focusing on the areas that the person is the weakest. I teach how to outline for the essay and what kinds of details to include in their paragraphs, learning math formulas, clues in grammar, and how to pick out the meaning and details in a passage. I have a positive attitude, and a light sense of humor. Students need constructive feedback, positive reinforcement, creativity, tricks, and an organized way to reach their goal. I guide them through what could be a very daunting process toward success!
I have worked in InDesign in my career for the last 7 years. Originally I was taught QuarkXPress, so it was a great upgrade to work with InDesign, where transferring files from Photoshop and Illustrator was made much more smoothly. I have worked in every InDesign from CS 2 to the current Creative Cloud.
I have a B.A. in English Literature and Language from Winona State University. Pertinent coursework includes Technical Writing, Expository Writing, Creative Writing, Literary Criticism, English Grammar and Usage, English Syntax, and several research paper-intensive literature classes.
I have counseled my brothers and numerous of their friends on the college app process and choosing a school, as well as what to expect and how to begin preparing for college. I also have counseled on community college vs. a 4-year institution. Not to mention I went through the college process (application, choosing, etc) by myself, so I know how to get everything done.
This is my second year teaching Algebra 1. I also tutored this subject through my school.
I have a Graduate Degree in English and Comparative Literature in Translation (ECLT) from the American University in Cairo. I will be starting my doctoral work this fall in a related field.
I am a native English speaker, but having lived abroad for over 10 years and having traveled for work extensively, I learned to speak English in a clear, proper and enunciated manner -- so that I could be better understood. This experience guides and inspires my efforts to help others who are learning English/ ESL.
I have taught young adults for three years to play chess at the Weber County Library in Ogden Utah. I have won multiple County tournaments in chess and still often play it. I know many openings age counter openings of which I've taught to newer players to enhance their ability to play the game.
With a Master's in Science at the Harold Abel School of Human Behavior, it's seen that Sociology is a common subject studied by me, as a scholar. Also, as a Sociology tutor, I've had experience in assisting students grasp the key concepts associated with sociology and it's core understandings. Lastly, with a deep understanding of research methods, and the understanding of human behavior, including overall social behavior and analysis, it's my hope that I can contribute to a student's overall understanding once out session is completed.
