Hi. I am a 39 year old mother of two boys. I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Western Michigan University and I am currently in my last year of Graduate Studies in Clinical Social Work at Michigan State University. As a mother of a child with ADHD and a person that is passionate about giving children and adults equal opportunities in learning, I have gained an understanding that students need to find specific techniques that match their learning style and their preference for learning. If a child does not feel that they can learn, or does not know how to absorb the information they are expected to, they often get discouraged, and may at some point "give-in" to the challenge. I am a firm believer that with encouragement, patience and a desire to learn, any child can find their strong points.
I have several years experience in the field of social work, and working with both children and adults. Through my professional writings and also as a graduate student, my English, writing, spelling and grammar skills are excellent. I have also developed skills for reading comprehension and retention of materials that have proven to be successful. My current GPA is 3.7.
My aim through tutoring is to empower individuals to have the confidence that they can succeed academically with the right tools and knowledge of their best attributes. Hi.

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.
