Dear Potential Student,
My name is Ms. Terry P. and I have a very strong interest in helping students (such as yourself) expand their knowledge base in order to perform their best both in and out of the classroom.

Dear Potential Student,
My name is Ms. Terry P. and I have a very strong interest in helping students (such as yourself) expand their knowledge base in order to perform their best both in and out of the classroom. I have always had a passion for helping others succeed beginning as a 12 year old 7th grader, when I was chosen to help students in the lower grades with math and reading assignments. As I matriculated to high school the same need existed. Although I was a 4-year varsity letter-man basketball player, I would primarily help freshman and sophomores with developing good study habits while assisting them with their Math, Science and Language Arts assignments. As a freshman at Louisiana State University (LSU), I helped the student-athletes improve their persuasive writing skills by proof-reading their work and offering restructuring of their papers. Later, as a career Supervisor in the Blood Bank at DeWitt Army hospital at Fort Belvoir, VA, I became the key instructor in laboratory studies for the military Medical Lab Technicians. This included areas of study such as Chemistry analysis, Hematology/Coagulation, Urinalysis and Microbiology. Oftentimes, they would also need help with math associated with the Medical Laboratory Technician exam for certification.
My style of teaching is very much a free-style, where I relate the material to the students' interest. For example, if they are a basketball enthusiast, I will relate the understanding of percentage to shooting free throws. If you are into gymnastics, the dynamics of flips and aerial somersaults might be related to both geometry and physics. If you like to read, then that same passion is developed as it applies to a particular class, where the reading may be uninteresting. I like to interject humor into my teaching style, to make learning fun and easier to understand. I strongly believe in my ability to help you overcome your learning challenge(s) and look forward to working with you.

Patient, fun and amazing energy.
Mrs. Terry is working with my 5 year old on reading. What was a struggle for me and my daughter is laughter and fun for Mrs. Terry and my daughter! The energy coming from the lessons is so happy and exuberant. Mrs. Terry clearly knows how to connect with her students and engage them in the lesson, and better yet, after just two sessions, my daughter has started to actually read. She doesn’t dread when I say ‘let’s try to read this’ now, and she looks forward to her weekly session with Mrs. Terry. I cannot recommend her enough!!!!Katie, 25 lessons with TerryTutor responded:
