Hello, and thank you for stopping by! I look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the world of learning...

It is widely-known that academic success can provide the foundation for lifelong success by promoting cognitive abilities, self-confidence, and a feeling of having a place in the world. My successful and rewarding teaching and tutoring career includes working with children of diverse ages, needs, and backgrounds. I have worked with high-risk children and special-needs children, and have tutored adults in GED testing and young adults in college curriculum. I have a creative, positive-minded, and strength-based tutoring method that allows students to learn through individual-based or group-based curriculum design, a design based on each student's learning style and strengths.

My personal academic background includes a Bachelor's Degree with a double major in Psychology and Sociology, with a focus in early childhood learning and cross-cultural psychology. As someone who views subjects such as math differently from most people, I learned in college to develop creative ways of learning and processing knowledge, and graduated with a 4.0 grade point average in 2009.

My experience includes working with the program "Second Step," an anti-bullying program that teaches through role-playing and empathy-building, and work with an all-subject after-school tutoring program that raised student test scores by 10% in a school known for dealing with issues of extreme violence and poverty.

The method of tutoring and teaching I use promotes knowledge retention and fun in learning, and all subjects, from public speaking to algebra, are presented in creative ways that inspire curiosity and increase self-confidence through subject understanding.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me.

Songwriting

As a professional Singer-Songwriter/Performer for many years, I made a living performing the Southeast Music Circuit (St. Louis, Memphis, Nashville, New Orleans, San Antonio, Austin) playing sets of mostly original music on college campuses and in other music venues (e.g., Exit-In in Nashville and Hole in the Wall in Austin). While obtaining a degree from UNM, I was a regular performer both in Old Town, Albuquerque, and venues in Santa Fe such as 2nd Street Brewery and Cats Downtown). Still a songwriter and local performer, I have long used music in tutoring to teach (e.g. mathematical concepts) and to provide motivation, and have never stopped teaching beginning guitar.

The Best Tutor

Ms. Bonni has been a life saver for my son and he's picking up quickly on his words and reading because of her and her patience with him. I depend more on her than his regular K1 teacher. She is a gem and we're lucky to have her.

Extremely knowledgeable and very patient

Bonni T. has been tutoring me for about 3 weeks now. She is the BEST!!! She is extremely patient and very knowledgeable. She has helped me learn the basics of computers using microsoft word and all that it entails. She has showed me how to search the internet and copy and paste information. She is familiar with UAH's angel program and general requirements for on-line courses. She has researched and made suggestions that were simply invaluable. When I started searching for a tutor, the selection was wide. I had no idea who to select. I read Bonni's profile and decided to send her an email. She gave me her phone number, and the rest is history. She was so reassuring on the phone then, and she is even more reassuring on the phone now. She makes me feel so at ease. She is helping me prepare for an on-line doctoral program. I knew very little about how to prepare for an on-line program. However, week by week, I am beginning to feel less stress thanks to Bonni. She is also very prompt when you call or email her. Thanks Bonni!!! You're the best!!!
