About Terra

Biblical Studies/Religion:
I graduated with a 3.86 gpa in religious education from a doctrinally sound seminary. I assisted students in my religion classes by teaching them with test taking skills. I was inducted into the 2006 Who's Who of Students in Colleges & Universities. I have served as a Minister of Christian Education and I have a lot of biblical knowledge. I have 10 years of ministerial experience.

Reading:
I served as a tutor at a grouphome for children. I have helped increase the reading score of my nieces and nephews that I tutored. I was trained to tutor by the same faculty that trained the Atlanta Public School system teachers. I was trained the same methods that teachers were trained which proved to be very successful. The curriculum that I have used to tutor is Success For All. I also served as a teacher assistant in a first grade classroom and as a tutor onsite at an elementary school for students in grades that ranged from 2nd to 5th. I tutored students whose reading scores were ranked at the bottom of their class until I helped them to achieve high reading scores. I am a big advocate for using flashcards, blending words, and sounding out words phonetically along with many other tutoring methods. I have seen the student's enthusiasm and self confidence in their ability to learn to increase after I tutored them. I specialize in achieving results by tailoring my methods to each person I teach. I am very patient and teach in a simplistic manner.

Public Speaking:
I have been a public speaker since I was a teenager. I am still thriving in this arena as a woman in her thirties. I travel locally and nationally to speak. I have received A's in all of the public speaking classes I have taken. I believe that first a public speaker must learn his or her audience. Also, a speaker must grab the audience's attention. These are just a couple of tips I use to help others with public speaking.

Psychology:
I began my college career as a psychology major before I transitioned to a seminary. I took three years of pre-med psychology coursework. I received high grades in my psychology classes. I have even supplemented my academia with on the job experience at a mental health outpatient center.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a bachelors degree in religious education from a seminary, and I graduated with a 3.86 gpa. I have completed some graduate level courses. I provided some of my classmates with test taking tips and tips on taking good notes. I have taught students that one key to performing well on a test is to take concise and detailed notes.

Public Speaking

I received A's in the three public speaking courses I took in college. I coached some of the students on writing speeches in my public speaking classes. I have taken three years of coursework in psychology, which provides me with a good understanding of the human mind. A good understanding of people is needed to deliver a speech that is receptive to them. I have traveled locally and nationally speaking publically for almost twenty years. I have learned the fundamentals of public speaking, and I would love to continue to teach them to others.

Speech

I have taken communication classes in college in which I made high grades. I have assisted classmates and other people with tips on writing speeches. I do a lot of public speaking which affords me the opportunity to write a lot of speeches.
