About Mindy

I work at a private school that spans elementary through middle school. My experience has reinforced my belief that everyone can learn material if it is presented in a way that works for that individual. Frequently the difficulty is not in the material itself but in the way it is being presented and finding another way to explain it can lead to that "ah ha" moment. The joy in the eyes of one of my students when that moment hits is truly heartwarming.

I am aware of the advantages of having someone other than a family member or friend help with difficult or challenging academic work. Help outside of the classroom is something that I feel should be encouraged but can become a struggle if it is provided by someone close to the student. I have high expectations for my students but am willing to take extra time to explain material in a variety of ways.

I have had the pleasure of teaching math at both elementary and middle school levels. I struggled with math as a child and had an excellent tutor and know what a huge benefit it can be to have extra help outside the classroom. Gaining a strong grasp of the basics is critical and I excel at patiently working with students to help them to secure that base.

My undergraduate degree is in English. When teaching I have worked with students on a variety of writing from expository and creative to research papers and reports. In my professional work I have edited large documents and manuals as well as written articles for magazines, research papers and am working on a children's book. I excel at proof reading, editing and helping students find their own voice in their writing. I also have graduate degrees in Marketing and International Business.

I have experienced great success working with students with ADD and ADHD. One recent success was working with a 3rd grade boy on his math facts. He struggles with math and focusing long enough to learn the facts is extremely taxing for him. He LOVES to play sports and is very tactile. So, as we practiced subtraction we bounced a basketball the appropriate number of times to show the answer. When we were working on multiplication we "wrote" the answers using cooked spaghetti noodles. when we practiced addition we rolled a ball back and forth. He was able to enjoy the activities while learning the math facts and moving ahead in his class.

I am excited to share my experience and expertise to help students grow and develop their skills and confidence. Please contact me so we can discuss if I would be a good fit for you.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked extensively with children with special needs including ADD, ADHD and other learning challenges. I understand that traditional teaching techniques often do not work with these students so I am creative and willing to think outside of the box. By making the material interesting to the individual child, together we can increase their chance of success.

Elementary Math

Math skills build upon one another so having a solid foundation is critical to moving forward. If a student has not mastered an earlier skill, more complex material is bound to be frustrating and difficult. When needed, I am willing and able to step back and master earlier skills to allow forward growth.

English

I have a college degree in English and have found great success in my professional life using my skills and knowledge. I feel a mastery of the language in reading, writing and speaking is critical to achieve success in all other areas.

Grammar

I have been working in a private school with students ranging from 1st through 8th grades. I find that each student learns differently and often the key to success is finding the correct teaching technique for each of my students. I am happy to explain material in many ways until my student grasps the concept thoroughly.

Grammar can be a complicated subject for students. I have a college degree in English and have truly mastered grammar. I have edited many articles, manuals and other documents and have been known to find grammatical errors that none of the other proof readers found.

Marketing

I earned a Master's Degree in Marketing and International Business and have worked as a Marketing Manager in various fields. My experience is invaluable and I am excited to share my knowledge to improve your projects and assignments.

Prealgebra

I have been working in a private school with students ranging from 1st through 8th grades. I find that each student learns differently and often the key to success is finding the correct teaching technique for each of my students. I am happy to explain material in many ways until my student grasps the concept thoroughly.

I have taught prealgebra to students ranging from 5th through 8th grades successfully.

Proofreading

My proofreading skills have provided a professional polish to documents ranging from term and research papers to magazine articles, creative writing and technical documents. I specialize in not only locating needed edits but also in helping the writer to understand why the change is important. This helps the student to learn how to be a better writer in the future as well as improving their current work.

Reading

My philosophy is that if you excel at reading you can learn just about anything from a book. I am an avid reader who has worked with many students to improve their reading and comprehension skills. I have found that often times finding books abut subjects of interest to the student helps to drive their desire to improve their skills.

Spelling

I struggled with spelling for many years and have worked to master the skills necessary to succeed. I know I can pass this knowledge on to other students.

Vocabulary

I have been working in a private school with students ranging from 1st through 8th grades. I find that each student learns differently and often the key to success is finding the correct teaching technique for each of my students. I am happy to explain material in many ways until my student grasps the concept thoroughly.

I feel that students with a large vocabulary will increase their reading and writing abilities as well so it is a critical area to master.

Writing

I have a college degree in English and have spent a large portion of my professional career working in fields where my writing skills are critical. I have written articles for magazines as well as brochure and web page copy. I excel at creative, persuasive and expository writing.
