Hi, I'm Greta, and I've worked in the education field for eight years. I have a bachelor's degree in History from the University of Mississippi, where I graduated summa cum laude and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. I worked as an Instructional aide at a local High School for three years. Currently, I am a stay at home parent to my two children. I've been a tutor for various subjects and test preparation for the past four years, working with both Tutoring Services and as a self-employed tutor.
My goal as a teaching assistant is to help the student study to their best ability in a timely manner. I am a pretty easy-going person and have a lot of patience because of the type of students that I have worked with in the past. I want my students to succeed and even small steps in the right direction are a way of showing success. Hi, I'm Greta, and I've worked in the education field for eight years.

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.
I have had some training with the HSPT, which is very similar to the COOP. I then tutored a student for three months for the HSPT and truly feel I am confident in the material. The test is also somewhat similar to the SSAT and ISEE in format, which I have much experience in tutoring.
I have been tutoring the ISEE for about three years now. I have taken training courses with another tutoring company I have worked with and become very familiar with the test. The students whom I have tutored for the ISEE have been well prepared for the test.
I took a training course with Boston Tutoring Services for the SAT reading section.
I have been tutoring all of the sections of the SAT for over four years. Last year, I took a training course on the new SAT through Boston Tutoring Services and am well-versed in all of the sections, particularly the writing section.
I have been tutoring the SSAT for four years and have taken several training courses regarding this entrance exam.
