About Pamela

Hi!
I have been tutoring for over 10 years. I tutor all ages of students from kindergarten to graduate school. I have a background in writing and teaching with an undergraduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in Communications. I have an M.A. in English from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I have worked with adult education, with middle school students, with high school students and with literacy on the elementary level.

My goal is to create excellence in my students. I believe the most important aspect in teaching is to engage a student. To do this, I often use the student's own interests to create my curriculum. For example, if a student is interested in sports, we may use sports write-ups or scores. I find that this approach makes students want to read and readers make better writers.

I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how we can make you or your students succeed.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working with students from preschool to adult for over 20 years. I've worked as a Literacy Assistant, Volunteer Tutor, and tutored on my own for years. Primarily, the students I work with are at risk students with low literacy skills. Those are the students I love to work with, both from an interest and challenge viewpoint. I have to be creative to interest and engage students and I love to use my creativity and my students individual interest to make what they learn relate to what they already know. This increases their confidence and helps them want to teach themselves.
