University of North Carolina at Charlotte (Psychology)
I garnered tutoring experience from my employment as an on-campus tutor for the University Center of Academic Excellence at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Serving mostly students from the Building Educational Strengths and Talents Learning Community, I tutored subjects from college and intermediate algebra, statistics, and writing composition. I received positive feedback from my students, and my faculty from B.E.S.T highly praised my efforts and dedication. I came with the idea to take on this kind of employment after giving classmates and friends personal tutoring myself--particularly college algebra.
I offer a relaxed style of tutoring that allows for any questions or concerns about the subject matter at hand. I always expect for students to come prepared for anything as I, too, arm myself with necessities such as paper, pencils, a TI-85 Calculator (for graphing plots), a copy of a relevant text book, etc. Although I am by nature a very mild-mannered person, I also demand accountability from my students. In other words, I will not help anybody cheat---only honest effort!
I am flexible as far as scheduling and payment are concerned given with the location and travel distance from my house to tutoring sites.
I look forward to work with you.

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.
In school and college, I always mastered the basic concepts of algebra. Rarely did I earn a grade in a test lower than an A. This inspired me to act as an amateurish tutor for a classmate of mine and a friend two years later who took college algebra. With this experience I garnered my tutoring job with the Building Educational Strengths and Talents Tutoring Center at UNC Charlotte. I had favorable experiences and feedback from my students and vice versa.
I earned official membership with the Psi Chi International Honor Society and the National Society of Leadership and Success my senior year of college. Spring and Fall Semesters 2010 I placed on the Dean's List.
I typically scored well on grammar quizzes in regards to identifying subject, verb, pronoun phrases, etc. in school. Like mathematics, I retained grammatical lessons easily since I heavily practiced grammar and punctuation in my home-school years.
I never had the privilege to tutor pre-algebra; however, I did tutor an adult student for intermediate algebra--which is essentially a mixture of pre-algebra and algebra itself. (This math was for students who did not place in college algebra during orientation.)
I don't have copies of students' reviews of my performance, but I do remember them praising my character, knowledge, and comfortability as a tutor. My superiors from B.E.S.T (Building Educational Strengths and Talents) at UNCC are always complementing me on my tutoring skills.
