About Destiny


Bio

Hello! My name is Destiny. I'm a 22 year old NYU graduate, as of this May. I have been tutoring since high school with great success.
My interest in tutoring began when I taught my youngest sibling to read. I found the experience to be extremely rewarding. I discovered that one of the best parts of tutoring is witnessing the students' excitement when they begin to understand something new.

Hello! My name is Destiny. I'm a 22 year old NYU graduate, as of this May. I have been tutoring since high school with great success.
My interest in tutoring began when I taught my youngest sibling to read. I found the experience to be extremely rewarding. I discovered that one of the best parts of tutoring is witnessing the students' excitement when they begin to understand something new. I then went on to excel on the ACT and I was invited to help tutor ACT workshops, primarily on the reading and English sections.
Once I started university, I did some online tutoring through instaEDU and helped students with their English on Palfish. I also volunteered working with kids whenever possible. Roughly two years ago, I started doing in school tutoring through an NYU program. Thus, I have two years of in-school tutoring experience and exposure to the workings of the New York Public School system.

My experience from tutoring on Palfish and other similar work with those working on their English are part of what make me an outstanding tutor.

Overall, I have been tutoring for around 5 years, informally and formally. Additionally, I have in school tutoring experience and an abundance of patience. Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from and working with you.

I feel reading is probably the subject I'm most qualified to assist with. I've had a college reading level since 7th grade and I taught one of my siblings to read. Additionally, I achieved a perfect score on the ACT reading section, tutored others in that subject, and I spent two years as an in-school tutor with a focus on increasing literacy. I've always loved to read. I believe if you find the right genre and help kids increase their confidence, they would also enjoy reading. I've managed to do this for several kids and would love to do the same for yours.

Knowledgeable and patient

Destiny is tutoring my 12yr old daughter in reading. This was our first meeting and it went well. She knew what she was doin as far as testing my daughter on her reading to find out her level, she was able to draft up a lesson plan going forward. Her attitude is of a kind and patient demeanor. Looking forward to this partnership and getting my daugher on track.
