University of Central Florida (History)
University of North Carolina at Charlotte (Master's)
I started my master's degree with no intentions of ever getting into teaching. A year later, my son began Kindergarten. By the time 1st grade rolled around, I had come to really understand the need for great teachers and tutors. I truly enjoy helping him with his homework and seeing his big smile when he succeeds. I then began to oversee the homeschooling of my nephew who is in eighth grade. When I see him get good grades or finally understand something, my heart swells with pride. To see students succeed has become such a passion in my life.
I am suited to tutor any subject for elementary children, but for the older ones I am better at English, Science and History. I have a bachelor's degree in history and a minor in biology. For the master's degree I am working in Public History. I am proficient in English and formal writing as the amount of writing I have done for this degree has been immense. I can easily teach MLA and Chicago styles. I have also written scientific papers and so can adapt to that style. The ACT, SAT, and GED are very important tests when applying to colleges. Tutoring for these tests can be extremely helpful and I am able to do this as well.
My main concern with students will be that they are able to understand and finish their homework, and score well on tests. Papers and essays will be proofread, grammar and spelling corrections made, and recommend suggestions for sentence structure. If studying ahead is desired, I would assign homework to be completed by the next lesson. ACT, SAT, GED study requires a lot of memorization and practice. The skills needed for these exams require proficiency of the subject and efficient time use.
I would prefer to meet students at a coffee shop, bookstore or library. However, exceptions can be made under certain circumstances. I have my own transportation and am always punctual. Lessons will not be billed if a parent or student is not satisfied with my work.
Contact me anytime!! I am at this time very available and would love to start working more with students! I started my master's degree with no intentions of ever getting into teaching.

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.
