Grand Canyon University - Phoenix, AZ (Psychology)
Hello! My name is Tiffany and I would like to tell you a little about myself and why I love to tutor. I am currently a senior in university and I graduate in December with my bachelors in the science of psychology. I am currently serving as the Psychology honor society president (Psi-Chi), volunteer at Phoenix Children's Hospital, feed my starving children, and water watchers, all while maintaining my 4.0 GPA. Once I complete my degree at Grand Canyon, I plan to continue my education at Arizona State University and receive my Masters in Social Work. I absolutely love children and I look forward to working to make sure that all children are getting the resources they need and deserve.
For the past year I have been working at preschool as a lead preschool teacher. While I adored and loved my job, unfortunately due to my summer school schedule I did not feel that it was fair to my students that I was unable to be there everyday. This is why I have decided to tutor. I have tutored many of my friends, as well as, peers in my honor society. I have helped many improve their writing, reading, and test-prep skills. I can tutor in math if needed, but my strongest areas are writing, reading, science, and test-prep.
Why do I want to tutor? I get asked this question numerous times! I love to tutor because there is something so special and rewarding about watching someone flourish academically. My favorite quote said by Albert Einstein states, " Everyone is a genius, but if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing it is stupid". I personally believe that everyone has the ability to learn, but sometimes school can be hard and if you fall behind it can be extremely difficult to catch up and often the result is that the individual feels incompetent and for lack of a better word, stupid; this is why I love tutoring. Sometimes you have to get creative to help someone understand, but when the lightbulb goes off it is a magical moment!
Before I was a freshman in high school, writing and reading were my worst subjects. I hated to read and write, mainly because I continued to fall behind my other peers. That was until I had an amazing English teacher and all of the sudden everything clicked. I began to discover different techniques to improve my writing and how to write an " A- paper" ( trust me, there is a formula!).
Now, I enjoy writing and reading, and both are subjects that I excel in! I hope to use similar techniques (and other creative methods) to teach your son or daughter how to write and read efficiently. I also aim to make this subject more exciting for students!
As I previously stated, I also can tutor in the subject areas: science, test-prep, or even history and math!
If you or your son or daughter needs a boost academically or even just wants ways to make learning more fun and exciting, then I encourage you to email me. I have had much success with tutoring others and I would be honored to help you or your son or daughter as well! Feel free to contact me through my profile on WyzAnt.
My schedule: As I previously stated I am completing some courses over the summer, but my schedule is still relatively open and I am also willing to meet on the weekends if needed. Below I have listed my available hours and I am willing to travel.
Mondays: Anytime after 1pm
Tuesdays: Anytime before 5pm
Wednesdays: Anytime after 1pm
Thursdays: Anytime before 5pm

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.
