Alice Lloyd College (Kinesiology)
I have two small children of my own, so I love children, and I tutor my 11 year old niece in math regularly for free. I also tutor my sister in law on college math so I am comfortable with several forms of math. I have worked the past 6 years with people with intellectual/developmental disabilities so I have a wealth of patience and compassion for others and helping them attain the highest level of independence as possible. I am originally from Leatherwood, only about 15 minutes from Viper school so I am very knowledgeable about the area and want to see it succeed as well as all the people in it.
I am currently applying to the Physical Therapy program here in Hazard as I am looking to remain in the area and see it return to its former state by doing my part in ensuring the people in the area always have a future and that starts with securing the next generation. With that in mind I will be the assistant coach at a High School this season where I hope to advance and reveal potential of young people as well as being a life mentor to help guide them in the right direction achieve success in every facet of life.
I have experience tutoring people at various ages and actively search for the correct approach to appeal to the individual to optimize tutoring results. I had to take college algebra, statistics, physics, and chemistry all which require a certain level of intuitive reasoning and arithmetic at a high level.
As a kinesiology major, the nature of my studies were primarily focused on the body and how it moves as well as understanding the environment and the effects it has on your body.
I have been involved in multiple sports since the age of five spanning through soccer, baseball, basketball, cross country, track, and wrestling. Additionally I have been an active member in the gym doing weight loss/strength training and will be testing for my ACE certification as a personal trainer in the near future.
Beyond making an impact on my local community I pray I can be part of someone else's story and make a difference in their lives to help tear down mental/physical barriers. I implore any student to contact me as I am very amiable and would take pleasure in helping others.
