About Courtney

I first discovered a love for education working at a swim school while attending Arizona State University. From there I decided to pursue a degree in Secondary Education, with a focus in English. After a few semesters working in classrooms, I realized I enjoyed teaching outside of a classroom setting more. I finished my BA in Liberal Studies, with a focus in Education and Child Development. I find that taking a different approach to learning outside the classroom often leads to results in both settings.

I personally scored in the 99th Percentile on the Reading portion of the ACT, with a score of 35. I am able to identify the skills that served as the greatest assets on that portion of the exam. That, matched with an educational background in Secondary English education and a history tutoring in Elementary schools, allow me to pull from multiple skill sets in order to further understanding.

I have been working in Elementary after school settings for 5+ years, with homework help being an integral part of each program. I know how and why students struggle, and know the questions to ask for them to discover the same answers as well.

People don't hire tutors because any old learning style works, they hire tutors to make learning work for them. I am someone who is only satisfied if the material works for you and helps you succeed, and will communicate and work with you as much as needed until it does just that.

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.
