Virginia Tech (Marketing)
I am a graduate of Virginia Tech, with a Bachelor's degree in Marketing. After college I moved to Philadelphia, PA to work for the federal government doing commercial real estate. I was asked to train a new hire at work and it was then that I discovered my love for teaching. After recently having a baby and relocating to NC, I am now able to tutor for a few days a week.
I am very patient and encouraging, and I look forward to working with you or your child. During the initial session, I have a discussion with you to ascertain what you (or your child's) current skill level is within a particular subject, then we would go over your goals for improvement. I will try to make each subsequent session interactive and interesting to keep you engaged - this is your time too and I want to make the most of it!
I specialize in tutoring English, Grammar, Reading and Vocabulary. I have a passion for language and reading, which is why I minored in Spanish in college and studied abroad. I graduated with a GPA of 3.7/4.0 and I have real world experience to support my qualifications. My position with the government required excellent communication skills and proficiency in drafting leases as well as other technical and professional documents. As a trainer, I assisted the new hire in developing a concise yet descriptive style of writing. I routinely reviewed his work for accuracy and to ensure that completed documents were free of grammatical errors. I even provided suggestions for improving his time management skills and for being more organized.
My academic record is outstanding and I am happy to provide a copy of my transcript upon request. My major qualification for teaching K-6th subjects is my love for learning as well as helping others to achieve their personal goals. I understand that sometimes it requires repetition to learn a new concept and at other times it just takes hearing the information presented in a different way.
If you feel that I would be a good fit for you, I hope you will contact me to set up an initial lesson. For older students, I can meet at a central location such as a restaurant or coffee shop if that's preferred and I am also willing to travel to students to tutor at home. Since I am new to tutoring, my base fee is currently $50/hr. I am very flexible with my hours of availability but please let me know 2 hours in advance if you need to cancel a session.
