About Virginia

I have a master's degree in counseling and psychology and am currently in process to obtain teaching certification with a master's in English literature for secondary students. I have provided tutoring to many students in the past and enjoy working with small groups or individuals to promote, assist, and encourage young thinkers to better understand the English language, writing, reading, vocabulary, and putting it all together.

I have also experienced test anxiety and understand the emotions that tests evoke in some; I am familiar with techniques and concepts to better control such emotions to avoid becoming problematic for future tests. While I agree that intelligence is based on a wide variety of characteristics testing is the normal way to measure one's knowledge and capabilities. Knowing how to calm nerves is important for those seeking to further their education as they will encounter many different major tests.
