About Lucy

My tutoring focus is ACT testing and the Microsoft Office suite. I can also provide proofreading and writing support. I have tutored different styles of students. At one time I had wanted to become a teacher and have taken some master's level coursework. I feel the difference between tutoring and teaching is that tutoring requires understanding how a student is looking at the subject and determining the best way to make the subject understandable. This requires understanding what is not working in the teaching approach being used and connecting an individual style with the desired outcomes.

Professionally, I often take the time to mentor my colleagues in Excel and Word and proofread business documentation and communications. I produce accurate and easily maintained Excel spreadsheets. Since graduating with an MBA, I have been certified through professional associations. Those certifications require passing exams along with work experience. Because I continue to take exams, I can provide help on managing time and understanding common pitfalls in answering questions. I have a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and during college I tutored athletes who needed to maintain grades to keep their scholarships. I have tutored using Facetime and Skype, though I prefer face to face interaction.

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.

Polish

I grew up speaking both Polish and English. Until high school, I attended Polish school on the weekends using textbooks from Poland. I am strongest in translation from Polish to English. Additionally, I am familiar with Polish cursive if you have handwritten documents.
