About Bethany

I work with all grade levels, from elementary school through the college level. I specialize in adapting my lessons to each individual student and their needs, and have a wide range of experience in taking a student's stage of life and unique struggles into account.

My goal is to train students to not need me by showing them how to recognize and compensate for their academic weaknesses and biggest challenges through behavioral adaptation. After working with me, they will move forward into their future equipped with skills that will support them throughout their lives.

I worked as a specially trained peer writing consultant at Columbus State University's groundbreaking Writing Center under Dr. Lape, 2007-2009. I scored highly on the ACT and the SAT both on my first attempt (32/1460), and I have taught Algebra I/II, Geometry and Precalculus in the classroom. This highlights my knowledge of the material. But my experience as a tutor over the past decade ensure that I can accomplish the most important goal: bringing the student to a point of understanding.

Do you have a question that I haven't answered? Contact me to discuss your student's needs and how I might help.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 in the classroom, and it is also a common subject that I have tutored during my 10 years as a professional tutor. This means that I have seen the subject from both sides, and often know the typical struggles that students face in this class.

Drawing

I have a Bachelor's of Art degree from University of Georgia, 2011. I was an art major, focusing on design. I took all the prerequisite drawing courses to receive this major. I also draw every day as a jewelry designer, and submit sketches to clients for review and approval.

Geometry

I have 10 years of experience tutoring. The majority of my students are 9-10 graders, most of whom are taking Algebra 1 or Geometry, so I have helped students with these subjects for years. This also helps me understand what is likely to be confusing about the topic. I have also taught Geometry in the classroom, which provides me with an even greater understanding of the topics that students must master in order to succeed in Geometry.

Painting

I attended the highly competitive Georgia Governor's Honors Program in 2005 for visual art. I also have a Bachelor's of Art degree from University of Georgia, 2011. I was an art major, focusing on design. I took all the prerequisite drawing and painting courses to receive this major. I also draw and paint every day as a jewelry designer, and submit sketches to clients for review and approval.

Writing

Trained as a peer writing consultant at Columbus State University in 2006-2008, one of my passions is improving reading comprehension and reading skills with all of my students. Communication is a powerful thing, and every student should be well equipped with it.
