Bio

Success in school is about reinforcement and applying the knowledge you've been given in the classroom. During the beginning of the school year, many students slack off because the teacher is reviewing basic concepts or have become distracted by their friends and extracurricular activities. Parents, don't wait until the year progresses to find out your son/daughter has missed out on the bulk of the material being taught!

Success in school is about reinforcement and applying the knowledge you've been given in the classroom. During the beginning of the school year, many students slack off because the teacher is reviewing basic concepts or have become distracted by their friends and extracurricular activities. Parents, don't wait until the year progresses to find out your son/daughter has missed out on the bulk of the material being taught! Contact me to find out how to get started with a tutoring session within the week.

I am a tutor that's been living in Eastern NC for almost 3 years. Prior to that, I lived in Miami, FL. There, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a minor in Criminal Justice. I began tutoring for the company during my Undergrad years and have continued offering services after I relocated. I am currently enrolled in the MBA program and have already earned my Master's degree in Clinical Counseling. While my education is in Psychology, my work experience and volunteer work throughout the community has all been in education. I am highly recommended by clients and very experienced, having mentored special needs foster children and previously provided tutoring for students ages 3 and up. I have 5+ years of experience in tutoring, including over 500 hours with Wyzant.

I provide evening or weekend tutoring sessions for students ranging from a Preschool curriculum to Undergraduate education. While math and reading are my primary focus, I have experience in all of my qualified subjects. I have assisted with school projects (science fair projects/classroom projects), essay writing (including research papers and exploratory papers), homework assignments, and exam preparation. I also have experience with helping to write and edit admissions essays, as well as preparing students for the SAT/ ACT exams in the Fall.

Grammar,

Grammar

Grammar is a fundamental part of learning. I believe every child should have the experience in learning grammar skills and basic grammar "rules". I did phenomenal in my Advanced English Language and Composition course and have taken several workshops specific to grammar. I am confident that I have what it takes to instill grammar education in you/ your child.
Proofreading

Proofreading

"There is always room for improvement." is a common phrase used by teachers. Proofreading is simply an additional set of eyes to review work and implement new ideas to improve your writing. I believe that I would be an asset to proofreading any of your/ your child's work.

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored students from as young as 3 years old. One of my strengths is math, specifically Elementary- level math.

Reading,

Reading

Reading is a fundamental part of learning any subject. I believe that reading is the limelight to success and without it, there will be immense struggle. When tutoring in reading, I make sure students thoroughly understand what they're reading and they fully comprehend the surrounding material. I emphasize the use of context clues and inference clues.
Spelling,

Spelling

I have been a great speller since my Elementary school years. Spelling doesn't come naturally for most students; it takes practice. As a tutor, I will constantly be rehearsing the sounds of letters and how they bind together to create words.
Study Skills,

Vocabulary

Vocabulary

As a university student, I have a wide range of vocabulary. Each day is an opportunity to learn more and expand my word bank. As a tutor, I will implement the lessons I was taught to expand my vocabulary. Vocabulary is not about knowing a word and how to spell it, it's about understanding the word and creating meaning to the word. As a tutor, I'd help you/ your child "understand" their vocabulary.
