About Pamela

My love of teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. The most important thing a teacher ever said to me was "Make it make sense to you. When you do that, you can master any subject." Since then I have been an LPN, a Junior High School Band Director, an Elementary Music Specialist, and a Research Scientist.

I feel that regardless of the subject, it is important to understand how the information fits together so that memorization is only necessary for basic skills. I emphasize understanding concepts so that the student can be as successful effort and motivation will allow. Not all students learn and express understanding in the same way; therefore, it is important to tailor lessons by using the methods that are best understood and expressed by the student. I want each student to be successful and strive for increased comprehension which will result in improved understanding, better grades, and higher test scores.

I love math. Making math make sense to a student is a rewarding experience. Everyday life presents us with "word problems" in a natural environment. I strive to help students understand that math is a fun skill and to be able to use it in a way that it will become a skill that they "own."

I have both taken Anatomy & Physiology at the College level. I understand the inner workings of the body and love to help students excel in these subjects.

As an Elementary School teacher I was required to teach reading skills to students at all levels of ability. From phonics to sight words to reading for understanding and making judgments about reading selections, I have helped many students to advance their skills.

I love science! It is the quest to understand how things work together. Having taken all manner of scientific courses and having done methodical scientific research, I understand how to teach these concepts to students so that they make sense to them, which leads to better comprehensive knowledge about the world. Also, I have been certified in K-6 General Science.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you learn by understanding whole concepts. By using your best learning methods we will develop your skills as they relate to studying as well as to your subject as a whole.

Approved subjects

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.

General Music

I am highly qualified in the area of general music. Since earning a Master's Degree in Music Education, I have been a public school teacher for ten years. The first three of those years were as a junior high school band director, and the last seven were as a K-5 Elementary Music Specialist. Although my certification is expired I have held a K-12 Instrumental Certification in both Arkansas and Louisiana.

Microsoft Excel

In my current and previous work as a scientific researcher I have used Excel extensively. I am proficient in making formulas, using references to other cells within the same and other tabs as well as linking spreadsheets to other spreadsheets.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have used PowerPoint extensively. I frequently make presentations (with animations and transitions, including adding multimedia, fliers, and even full sized conference presentation posters using this App.

Microsoft Publisher

In my current and previous work as a scientific researcher I have used Excel, PowerPoint, Word, and Publisher extensively. Publisher is one of my favorite "go to" Apps for making ads and posters. I can do nearly anything with this app.

Microsoft Word

It's a word processor, not a typewriter! I can teach you how to utilize all the features of Microsoft Word as well as make labels and do mail merges.

Physiology

I have taught A&P at the college level, and can help you to understand the physiology concepts you need to apply to a variety of fields.

Reading

I have four years experience in elementary school reading education as a result of part of my duties as an elementary school teacher.
