Helping people learn
My experience in tutoring/teaching, although limited pupil-wise, is quite vast as it relates to topics covered and depth of coverage. I grew up tutoring my sister who is 3 years my junior in just about every subject through grade school with math being the one she struggled with the most, and thankfully, the one I have always understood best. She had a difficult time being open to accepting the information regardless of the medium through which it was expressed and that helped shape the way I teach and tutor. I take great pride in my ability to adapt my teaching style to each particular style of learner that I teach.
I am well versed in most grade school subjects and disciplines, having been a National Merit Commended Scholar out of high school in Texas, and having taken almost every AP (college-level) course offered to me while in High School. I entered LSU having tested out of 27 credit hours worth of courses (the average semester being roughly 12-18 hours,) and by graduation, had thorough mastery of most K-12 disciplines.
Completed all advanced Math Coursework in grade school; from taking Pre-Algebra in 7th grade; then subsequently taking Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and finishing my Senior Year in HS having taken both college level Calculus courses. And I passed all 3 college Calculus courses in College, having tested out of the first Calculus. I have full comprehension and mastery of any and all K-12 Math Coursework.
As previously mentioned, I was a National Merit Commended Scholar, which is a designation given to the top percentage of scorers on the College Qualification Exam, the PSAT. My practice PSAT score qualified me to join the "PSAT Team" at my school which, for months leading up to the final PSAT, completed countless practice exams, studied vocabulary, and learned test structure and composition. The SAT Vocabulary portion was a personal favorite of mine as I have always been fascinated with the idea that there are usually more precise words available than what we are accustomed to using on a daily basis.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any question about me, my experience, or would like to schedule a tutoring session. I look forward to hearing from you!
