MacMurray College (Math and Comp Sci)
I enjoy working with others, especially assisting them in obtaining educational goals, whether formal or informal. I believe that with the right educational opportunities and experiences one can accomplish a great deal in the future.
I myself am a life long learner. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Math and Computer Science and am currently working on another dual major Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Human Services. I am certified as a K-12 Substitute teacher and Adult Education and Literacy instructor in the state of Missouri.
I formerly also studied education, and even though I changed that major, I have found myself teaching in one form or another for many years. My former employers consist of Missouri S&T and Rolla Adult Education & Literacy program where I helped individuals study for their GED. I loved it. When the program was shut down, I began doing private tutoring. Most of my clients have been in Math and one in ACT preparation but I am open to many other areas as well, such as: reading, language, writing development, science, and computer science and English.
I have experience not only with high school and adult students, but also with children. I have not only followed and helped students with homework, but also have created and executed my own lesson plans which included crafts and games for the younger children.

Kathryn tutored me for 6 weeks twice a week to help me get ready for my ACT test. She did a wonderful job, and I strongly recommend her as a tutor.
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 studied the Bible a large portion of my life. I have taught both adults and children the Bible. I led a Bible Study for many years to a group of Chinese (English speaking) college students. I have a variety of translations and other resources available. I am familiar with OT and NT and have written paraphrases of the 23rd Psalm relevant to where I was at a given stage in life. I have several verses memorized and know how to find verses easily. I love studying the Bible on my own and with others.
I have a substitute teaching certificate in K-12. I have frequently designed and executed lesson plans for young children. I am adept at taking concepts and attempting to explain them in different ways or to break them down into pieces so that they can be better understood. I also believe in the importance of trying to adapt the teaching to the individual's learning method and including hands on whenever possible.
