St. Johns River Community College (AA degree)
St Johns River Community College (Graduate Coursework)
Hello, I have been tutoring in the SES tutoring program here in Florida for four years now. I have been cleared to work in schools in Putnam, Alachua, Bradford, Flagler, and St. Johns. I have worked extensively with children from Kindergarten-7th grade, in both reading and math, and would be comfortable working with older students, up to college age, in the language arts, as well as the additional subjects I indicated in my profile. I am well versed in the Florida goals and benchmarks, for each grade. I have helped many children increase in their reading and math skills. I am a 'life-long learner' and I try to instill in students a love of reading, as this is the source of most of the information we receive. A person who reads can educate themselves, on a variety of topics! I am currently home-schooling my son--he is 13 years old, in the 7th grade, and recently took the ITBS, and did extremely well on the reading component, scoring at 12th grade level in vocabulary, and reading on a 10th grade level. I enjoy working with children, and strive to connect with each student, in a positive way. I am a positive, upbeat individual, and I try to help each student see themselves achieving their objectives!
When tutoring in math, I break down each operation, and help the student learn a step-by-step process to solve the problem. Multi-digit multiplication is often a challenge for children. I use graph paper to help the student keep place values aligned properly. I also use graph paper when working on long division problems with a student. I was an honor graduate from high school, and graduated from college magna cum laude. Hello, I have been tutoring in the SES tutoring program here in Florida for four years now.

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.
I love history! I am an avid reader of all things historical. I know many interesting stories about the local history of Putnam County, and north Florida.
I took a botany course in college, receiving an A in the course. I am a plant lover and gardener, and still draw on the knowledge gained from this course. If a student needs help in this area, I would like to look over the course materials prior to doing tutoring.
I have tutored extensively in the SES tutoring program with elementary age students, in both reading and math. I have an AA degree, graduating magna cum laude. I have already passed the reading, grammar, spelling, and vocabulary assessments here on WyzAnt, and also the elementary math assessment.
One of the kids I tutored in the SES program, called me the 'fraction queen'! I have been able to explain, and break down into steps, many types of math problems from the elementary grades. Multi-digit multiplication, long division, and all operations in fractions, can be broken down into step-by-step procedures.
I love to read, and try very diligently to impart this to my students.
I was an honor graduate from high school, and graduated magna cum laude from college. I have assisted each of my own four children with studying. I have tutored for four years in the SES program, and have had much success with showing students a 'better method' to learn material, than the one they were using. For instance, comprehension was a huge issue for a recent reading student. He would hurry through reading a short passage, and then be unable to answer one question about WHAT he just read. By having him read the passage aloud, to me, he had to slow down, and pronounce the words clearly. When he got to the questions after this little exercise, he answered all of them correctly, with little effort.
