University of Central Florida (English)
Welcome to my page!
My name is Sydni and I have been a tutor since 2011. I began working as a tutor while I was studying English at the University of Central Florida. I got my Bachelor's degree in English on the Creative Writing track May 2013. I worked specifically with the student-athletes at my university and received my CRLA Certification in August 2012. CRLA stands for "College Reading & Learning Association." I had the pleasure of working with at-risk student-athletes and those who had learning disabilities, to instill successful study habits that resulted in passing scores for 98% of the students I worked with! While tutoring at UCF, I was a lead tutor for the incoming students who struggled with their college entrance exams. For this purpose, I was assigned to be the Lead Tutor for the Reading/Writing portion of the College Placement Exam summer prep intensive. Over the course of two summers, working with approximately 20 students, only 1 student did not pass after having worked with me.
I currently work at an early childhood learning facility and am CPR Certified. This opportunity also allows me to work with bright young minds eager to learn! I understand that everyone learns differently. What works for one child/person, does not work for every student. It is because of this that it is so important to be supportive, encouraging, energetic, and most importantly, flexible. Adaptability and creative problem solving have been invaluable virtues for me as a tutor these last 4 years.
I look forward to working with your bright learners! Where there is a will, there is a way!

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.
My experience as a tutor at UCF and work with early childhood programs at Bright Horizons working with preschool prep-aged children has given me great experiencing children to write as well as helping adults to better their handwriting. Using formatted worksheets and daily practice has proved successful when working with students from ages 5-25.
