In high school, I graduated with academic honors from Hamilton Southeastern High School. In that time, I was inducted into the National Honor Society and played tennis for the school. My senior year I was a peer tutor and cadet teacher. I spent part of each day with the special needs kids while they were in gym class, and spent the end of each day at an elementary school student teaching for a 2nd grade music class. I'm really good at explaining things and helping people to understand materials they are struggling with.
I will be a senior at IUPUI this fall. I'm a psychology major and have plans to get my PsyD to become a psychiatrist and work in either a hospital or prison psychiatric ward. In the meantime, I work for Liberty National, which is a life insurance company, and am a licensed agent through the state of Indiana.
As far as math is concerned, I'm great at Algebra, but Geometry and anything further aren't really my forte. I can easily see formulas and am able to put them into words that you/your child can understand fully.
I'm a psychology major with a minor in sociology. I am extremely passionate about psychology and want to spend the rest of my working career focusing on it.
I am also a really good writer. I can make a paper flow nearly flawlessly and make it look very professional. In high school I took ACP Composition, which is the college freshman comp class. I received a B+ in the class and that was my first grade on my college transcript.
I have a fairly open schedule and am very flexible with my time. I have classes on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9am-6pm, so I am not available those days, but with my job I work my own hours and at my own pace. All in all, I'm willing to help those in need and I love to watch people succeed in school. Hard work really does pay off!

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.
My freshman year I took Algebra 1. My sophomore year I took Algebra 2 and geometry. I'm terrible at Geometry, but I have always been really good at algebra. I understand computations and see formulas easily. I can easily explain formulas and easy methods to solving equations. I helped my brother significantly when he was taking Algebra 1 and 2 during high school. My mom has never been all that great with math, so I was the one that always had to help him.
I've always been a stickler for grammar. I cannot stand when people use improper grammar in any sense, especially in a paper for school. It seems that each generation uses more and more abbreviations without really knowing how to spell out/use the proper words. Having a mother that was an English major really kept my grammar skills in line throughout my schooling.
I have had to proofread so many papers over the course of my schooling. I took a composition class in high school that was a college level class where we worked in groups to proofread and edit each paper before turning in the final product. My brother has a learning disability with reading comprehension, so every time he had a paper to write in school, I would sit with him and help him to not only write the paper, but would go through and proofread each draft for him and help him with editing.
I took an AP psychology class my senior year in high school to prepare me for my major in college. In college, I have taken an intro psychology class, ethics and society, abnormal psychology, health psychology, behavioral neuroscience, adolescent psychology, and am currently enrolled in a few more which include: psychology of women and statistics in psychology. I have 1 more psychology class to take (Research methods) before moving onto my capstone course, which will be a clinical psychology lab.
I have taken a theatre arts class in high school which put me up on a stage to perform monologues and dialogues with my classmates. I took a required speech class in high school as well as the required speech class in college. I work for an insurance agency and often we have to give presentations to a group of people to explain the products we offer and get them to enroll and sign the paperwork
I took Spanish for 3 of 4 years of high school, which taught me to take the root of each word and go back to its Latin origin to find the meaning without actually looking it up. Granted, I don't remember all that much Spanish, but in English I am very good at figuring out the root word and meaning if I do not already know it off the top of my head. I was in a few spelling bees in school, so I can also usually spell very well.
I have taken 2 composition classes in high school. I have also taken a few of them in college. My SAT writing score was a 9 both times I took the SAT my junior year in high school. I can make a paper flow very well and am able to basically write about anything, regardless of how much I know about the subject. My mom was an English major in high school and has helped me substantially along the way
