About Blossom

Education is the key to success! This statement is what students hear throughout their entire lifetime, but in present day, the education system has seemed to fail many of our students. Throughout my teaching and tutoring past experience, I have realized how much students need one on one or small group interventions for learning. Whether a student has fallen behind in a subject or just needs extra help for a big exam, every student can benefit from tutoring, which is why tutoring is my passion.

Throughout my college experience at Georgia State University as an undergrad in African American Studies and Urban Education, I enjoyed reading and writing. However, after graduating and becoming a social studies teacher, I was saddened at how many of my students were not able to comprehend what they read and lacked basic skill writing and grammar in the sixth grade.

Many of the students needed individualized help that I was not able to give as a teacher with more than seventy students. However, it pushed me to learn new methods on teaching and tailoring lessons for individual students. Although, I do not teach in a classroom anymore, I find it more fulfilling to be able to give students the time and attention they need in order to learn and have confidence in any subject.

As your tutor, I will be able to give one on one tutoring in reading, writing, and math. There are several methods that I use with my students such as hands-on learning tools as well as practice studying skills. For a student that I will meet with on a consistent basis, I will be willing to meet with teachers and parents to plan out a plan for the student to grow in the subjects that they need help with. I have a small tutoring space downtown Atlanta, but I am also willing to travel to your home. I look forward to planning and discussing your student's growth and learning.

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.
