About Cassandra


Bio

Hi! My name is Cassandra, but most people call me Cass. I have had experience with tutoring elementary aged children in reading and math, and I've always found it to be a blast! I get that some things take time, so patience is required, but I am willing to help kids work through even things that they can't begin to make sense of. I'm currently a Junior at UAH, with good grades and study habits, and my experience with knowing how children learn grows every year.

Hi! My name is Cassandra, but most people call me Cass. I have had experience with tutoring elementary aged children in reading and math, and I've always found it to be a blast! I get that some things take time, so patience is required, but I am willing to help kids work through even things that they can't begin to make sense of. I'm currently a Junior at UAH, with good grades and study habits, and my experience with knowing how children learn grows every year.

I love tutoring because I love to see how excited kids get when they finally understand something that has been bothering them. I remember those days from my childhood, and especially with the growing number of students in schools, you won't always get all the attention and help you need. I've worked through in-school tutoring programs in Virginia, as well as Peer Mediation programs that help me help you through the most frustrating moments. I've been told one of my best traits as a tutor is that I am gentle and calm enough to make even the most shy of students comfortable!

What makes me an excellent elementary math teacher is that I helped my little brother all throughout his elementary school grades with his math-- I have a lot of experience with frustration at numbers, but I know all of the ways to remember and do quick math in your head without having to memorize entire tables. My little brother now has math as one of his best subjects!

I make an outstanding English tutor because the English language has always been my strongest subject and a passion of mine. I have won the NTCE Award for Superior Writing in the state of Virginia, and have always gotten praise for my written work. I understand that reading, writing, and especially proof reading aren't many student's favorite subjects, but I do what I can to make sure some fun can be found.

I also have experience with proofreading from high-school, where I was one of the editors of our school's literary magazine. I would look through all the submitted prose and correct spelling errors and consult the authors on grammatical errors.

As much as school has been something I have enjoyed doing because I love to learn, learning does not always come easily and that is where study skills are the most necessary. I am more than familiar with the need to form study skills early on in a student's career, so it becomes easier to study as the subjects get harder. I know several fun ways to create flashcards and memorize terms using mnemonic devices, but I also know how to read textbooks for information and create helpful note guides!

Please contact me if you think I would be right for you! I have very flexible hours during the summer and a strong passion for helping others learn! My main goal is to make sure you get the help you need, and I would love to hear from you!
