About Sandy

I've been tutoring adult students who are incarcerated in AZ Dept. of Corrections for almost a year. My students' ages were from 18-55. These students have been criminals for most of their lives, and many never made it passed 8th grade.

My job was to first convince them it would benefit them in more ways than they could imagine to get their G.E.D. Next I had to teach them! It was an extremely challenging position for me, but also one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had. I learned to relate to them in ways nobody has ever been able to. And more importantly they were able to relate to me. Together we were able to take on educational problems they've had their entire lives and overcome them!

I love writing and have spent years working on my craft. Every day I am still learning more about the subject. I have a thirst for education that can never be sated. I enjoy learning, and passing on what I've learned to my students.

I work well with students of all ages, but I love working with children and I believe they enjoy working with me.

All my life I've been an avid swimmer and soccer player. I have tons of knowledge about both sports and look forward to sharing that knowledge to help my students excel in the sport they love.

I am not your typical tutor. I make learning easy for student having difficulties with whatever subjects they have problems with.

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.

Bodybuilding

I am a certified personal trainer and also have CPR/AED/first aid certifications.

Common Core

As a G.E.D. tutor I'm very familiar with all Common Core subjects. I'm able to show students new and engaging ways to learn any subject they may be struggling with.

Soccer

I started playing soccer when I was six years old and played through high school. Over the years I've played almost every position. The position I loved and played the most was goalkeeper.

Swimming

I started swimming by the time I was five years old. I'm proficient in all of the different swimming strokes. I also know CPR and can teach diving.
