About Courtney

A Certified Athletic Trainer by trade, I spent the last 12 years working at a Junior Boarding School, where I served in a variety of roles, primarily as Athletic Director, Athletic Trainer, Pre-Algebra/Algebra teacher, Student Advisor, and Dorm Parent for co-ed students in grades 5-9. With an international population and large cross section of abilities, I was able to work with students from all different backgrounds (nationality, ethnically, socioeconomically, physically) and with varying learning styles and profiles, including students with ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, processing speed issues, etc.

Having served as a Teaching Assistant in college, I have always loved being in a classroom, and especially enjoy working with middle school age students. With a natural inclination toward math/sciences, I appreciate there are many students who struggle with these subjects and can become intimidated or develop aversions towards them. I am hoping to help with that process! Also, as an ATC with extensive background in concussion training, I have a vested interest in the brain, learning, and in particular, memory and brain health.

I have recently transitioned from my longtime career to a different, per diem role a bit closer to my extended family, primarily to spend more time with them and be more accessible to them, given their health. Therefore, I am hoping to keep connected with students through tutoring while helping to supplement my income.

I have a visual memory, so especially enjoy subjects like Algebra, Geometry/Trigonometry where tangibles can be used to help explain the subject. I can name all 206 bones in the human body, as well as most muscles.

I have post-graduate certifications through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) as a Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Performance Enhancement Specialist, and Undergraduate & Graduate degrees in Exercise Science (with concentration in Injury Prevention). I also am an ImPACT Certified Athletic Trainer.

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.
