About Becky

I can help construct your writing into clear, understandable and grammatically correct works of art. I can help train your eye for common mistakes in writing, and spot typos that your spell check won't find. I can help you figure out what it is your Professor is looking for in the assignment, which isn't always easy!

As a Sociology major, I learned that every problem in society is complex and there are no easy solutions to any of them. Society is a constant serve of curveballs making it seem like a complicated mess to sort through and understand. I find it fascinating, fun and somewhat easy to break down concepts in this area of study, and I can help you, too.

The other subjects I tutor are products of my life and work experience over the last three decades. More subjects to come.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

English class involves a variety of assignments from reading comprehension and reports to grammar and sentence structure breakdowns.

Fitness

I have extensive experience with fitness which includes the areas of nutrition, physical exercise and sports. I was the Fitness Petty Officer while serving the NAVY where I was responsible for my division's ability to pass the semi-annual physical fitness test. I coached in eating habits, exercising for fun and health. I also maintained motivation by running along side my shipmates and by empowering them throughout the year to stay fit.

Grammar

I think grammar is usually the sore spot for many people simply because, without practice, it's easy to forget the rules. The comma, for example, is either over-used or under-used, and that one piece of grammar can affect your grade.

Reading

Reading comprehension assignments can be confusing and frustrating. I can help you to pinpoint the information you need and to gain full understanding of your reading.

Sociology

I am a Sociology major transferring from Palomar College in San Marcos, CA to California State University in San Marcos, CA. I will be transferring in Fall 2014. My grades in the subject have all been A's.

Study Skills

I have learned over the years very efficient ways to take notes, how to find information that may have been lost during lectures, and how to quickly figure out the most efficient way to study for each subject. Forming study groups and knowing how to keep the group on task is a skill I can also teach. Also, I can show students ways to connect with the material that makes the most sense to their way of learning.

Vocabulary

Spelling, definition, pronunciation, and proper use of words are all important in expanding vocabulary. I can help you practice and understand, and even better, remember your vocabulary.

Writing

Basic writing techniques are harder to learn now than ever before thanks to the constant exposure to blogging, texting, email and other new media which does not require skill. I can help you develop your writing skills so that, no matter what your venue is, you stand out and your making the grade.
