About Erica

I received my Bachelor's degree in Writing and Journalism, but my original major was education. I also worked at an online newspaper for two years and The Daily Citizen in Searcy for three years, winning several awards for my writing.
I home-school my oldest son so I have resources available to me and experience in teaching. I also proctor the ACT for the Beebe School District so I am familiar with the how the test works and what they are looking for and can provide good test taking skills to improve ACT scores.
I also have experience in tutoring some math.
My biggest goal is not to simply drill a skill so the student can regurgitate it for a test, but for the student to truly gain the knowledge of the subject matter they are struggling with in school.
