About Maggie


Bio

Hello! My name is Maggie, and I am very excited to join Wyzant as a tutor. I have been tutoring independently on the Monterey Peninsula for about 6 years, and I love it! I have found that it is a great supplement to my income while I am working on my Master's degree through Liberty University. I recently joined Wyzant in order to help more students excel in their classes and on their standardized tests.

My favorite subjects to tutor are English and literature, writing, the sciences...

Hello! My name is Maggie, and I am very excited to join Wyzant as a tutor. I have been tutoring independently on the Monterey Peninsula for about 6 years, and I love it! I have found that it is a great supplement to my income while I am working on my Master's degree through Liberty University. I recently joined Wyzant in order to help more students excel in their classes and on their standardized tests.

My favorite subjects to tutor are English and literature, writing, the sciences (especially biology, chemistry, genetics, and psychology), and history, and I just recently started tutoring students in SAT prep.

English/ Literature/ Writing: I have excelled in English classes throughout my schooling because I had access to countless books growing up and became an avid reader, as a result. I also have had some wonderful teachers and professors who drilled me in grammar and vocabulary and taught me the finer points of writing. Through the years, therefore, I have grown to love these subjects. Because I love these subjects so much, I have tutored students in English, literature, and writing for about five years. In addition, I have worked as an editor of both graduate-level and business/ legal writing for the past two years or so.

Science: I have loved science for my entire life. As an animal science major in college, I was able to take quite a few science classes from the unique perspective of applying much of the information to real-life situations involving people and animals on the spot. Much of the information which I learned in high school was repeated in a new and fresh way, which I have been able to pass on to the students I have tutored, and I have found that they value an approach which they would not otherwise have seen in their classes.

History: I have tutored students in history for over five years, which has been very rewarding. From World History to European History to American History, I have enjoyed working with students as they see these subjects take on a new value and meaning. I have been fortunate enough to have had teachers who have brought these subjects to life, and I love passing that enthusiasm on to my students as we explore history together.

I enjoy working with students and their families to find the perfect learning and study methods for that student, as well as discovering their talents and abilities with regard to academics. I love being able to see students who were struggling with their classes grow in confidence and in their abilities throughout the course of even a few months. Because I interact with both the student and the parents on a regular basis as part of tutoring, if applicable, I make it my policy to inform the student's parents of the student's progress, as well as areas in which improvement is needed.

I look forward to working with you!
