About Stefanie

In school, reading and writing were always my favorite subjects. I loved being creative by writing stories and reading about far off places. So it's no wonder why I decided to major in English in college. Since then, I have put my skills to use writing for news paper and working in the television industry. I would love to share my love for these subjects and my experience with public speaking with students in various grade levels. I understand how important it is to have some one-on-one help while in school in order to build confidence and improve grades, so would love to be that resource for students in the area.

In college, I tutored elementary school students in reading and writing. I find that getting to know each individual student is the best way to figure out how to teach them because every person learns differently. However, I find that students learn best when I break each lesson down into smaller parts. I do that by writing out note cards or by reading a book one paragraph at a time and explaining each little bit as we go.

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.

Public Speaking

I have experience working as a reporter on television for 5 years in Columbus, Georgia. I have also hosted and spoken at various community functions through my role as a reporter. I regularly participate in business meetings where presentations are required.


My experience in the pool began with swim lessons when I was a child and continued through swim team in high school where I competed in freestyle and breast stroke. I was also a lifeguard at a local swim club for two years, where I was trained in CPR as well as rescue techniques. I taught swim lessons to children toddler through third grade for a local summer camp during one summer, as well.

Video Production

I have experience working with various non-linear video editing programs including Final Cut Pro. I used this software daily for 5 years as a reporter editing my own stories.
