About Heather

I graduated with honors this year from Yuba College with two degrees. One is in English and the other in Arts & Humanities. I have over six years of experience tutoring English, and one semester tutoring each of the following: speech (group communications), psychology, and humanities. I completed five semesters of writing for the college newspaper, The Prospector. I was content editor of the paper for one semester and print editor for one semester. I was a graduation speaker. I have edited two books for two different young authors, one of which has been published. I have also done freelance writing - most recently I have had submissions in two editions of the local magazine, Yuba-Sutter Community Magazine.

I love working with others, helping them to strengthen their reading and writing, and helping them build confidence in themselves by not only assisting them in improving their work, but showing them how to research and find methods and solutions on their own. I've worked with many ESL (English as a Second Language) students and do not mind working harder to break language barriers. I have experience tutoring one-on-one or in groups as large as half a dozen students.

I like staying busy and always having something to do. I am motivated, goal oriented, and determined. I don't give up easily and if a challenge presents itself, I love finding ways to adapt to the circumstances and overcome it.

Your son is a very bright boy and he is a pleasure to work with! It melted my heart when he said at the end of yesterday's lesson that "It was fun!" I hope he continues to find the joy in reading because he does it well when he finds something he is interested in.

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.

We have had a great experience with Heather! I explained to her the areas my son struggled with and she jumped right in and assessed him and took it from there. She is a great listener and teacher. My son looks forward to meeting with her again, and is actually enjoying reading!!
