About Dakota

I have had a love for education for most of my adult life. During both my associate's and bachelor's work, I tutored English and Reading as a part time job at both the collegiate and high school levels. After college, I taught high school level English and Reading to the 7th, 8th, 9th, and 11th grades. This has given me a well-rounded amount of experience and the ability to communicate on several levels.

I tend to be outgoing and accepting of mistakes, as it is my personal philosophy that mistakes tend to help us learn. I do not give up on students whatsoever, as I feel it is deeply necessary for motivation and moral to show belief in their competency. Simply because something is difficult does not mean they are not capable.

I have a strong belief that though something is difficult, and though mistakes are made, that every student, young or old, can learn. Generally speaking, what is necessary is merely guidance and an explanation of WHAT has gone wrong, as opposed to merely stating that something is incorrect. Examples and demonstrations tend to be very effective if given in a constructive manner. The same goes for criticism--when given, it should be constructive in nature and meant to bring an individual up, not tear him or her down for his or her mistakes.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

Having worked at a school where our standardized tests were given by ACT, (to younger ages in different formats but still through ACT) I am well-versed in the presentation and questioning on the ACT. I specialize in the English/Reading/Writing content areas, but also have helpful tips and tricks on assisting with the Science portion as well as helpful tricks for general test taking.

English

Having taught English professionally, I am well-versed in the content area. I have also tutored English from elementary to the collegiate level for over 5 years now.

Reading

Having taught reading for two years and having a great passion for it myself, I have several reading strategies to improve comprehension and interest. I take a "love of reading" approach that will help most students feel more confident by getting further involved with reading.

Writing

As I stated in my message, I have deep experience teaching and tutoring when it comes to essay writing. I am well-versed in the research portion as well, if the essay necessitates citations. I also do proofreading and editing to help improve an essay's flow and grammatical structure.
