About Preston

I am a graduate of the University of New Orleans and attended Goddard College's Master of fine arts program. I am a working and credential teacher. My general area of expertise is in English, particularly reading, and test preps. I have long had a passion for both reading and writing. I genuinely love helping those who are struggling in those areas develop good reading and writing habits.

I recently produced my first theatrically released motion picture, and I am currently in pre development for my second feature film. I have worked for the Mississippi Film commission and assisted in the coordination of several well known film festivals.

I am a guy who's good at taking the stress out of learning and making it fun. One of my favorite sayings is that "anything is obtainable in life"! Yes, believe it or not, that even includes making a decent grade in a subject that gives you trouble. I look forward to working with you.

Study Skills

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.

American History

I studied a lot of American History throughout my entry-level college courses.

Literature

I am an avid consumer of literature and studied it throughout both undergrad and grad school. I suppose you could call me a literature buff! I also have experience tutoring children in literature based exercises and comprehension.

Reading

I am an avid reader and feel that reading in general is my best subject. Yes, I captured my love of writing through exercising my mind reading various works of literature, novellas and graphic novels. I am extremely confident in my ability to help children experiencing difficulties with reading.

SAT Reading

I recall the days of studying for the SAT and ACT, something that wasn't extremely fun. However, I always performed really well on the reading sections of these type of examinations. I wish I could say the same for math! That said, I have experience tutoring high school students in this area and I feel that it's something that I'm good at.

Spelling

One the things that I prided myself in was proper spelling, which is something that made editing much easier! Yes, of course, there is software now that auto corrects, but I still take the time to go back and spell the word correctly if I happen to mess up on a word.
