I am a native of Brunswick County, NC. My only child is teaching English and classroom skills to Korean teachers and other foreign nationals in South Korea. I am single and can work varied hours. I can tutor evenings and weekends if necessary. I like to tutor students in the public library, on college campuses, churches or other public places.

I have also worked as a Director of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs at Brunswick Community College in Supply, NC from 1997 to 2000, so I have experience advising and helping students in a college setting.

I used Mrs. W for a few months and during that time she helped me achieve my goals for increasing my SAT score. She helped me get almost 100 points more than my goal score. We did vocabulary quizzes, wrote practice essays, and even did a complete practice test. After I was finished studying for the SAT, she helped me tremendously by revising my college application essays. I highly recommend her because she can help and is so knowledgeable in every area of academics.
Mrs. W is an excellent tutor. We requested Mrs. W to help our son prepare for an English compass test for college admission. Rather than just helping him to memorize the material to pass the test, Mrs. W assessed his current level of knowledge and tutored him in the areas he was weak to help him pass the test and be competent in future classes. Mrs. W is very friendly and has been extremely flexible working within our daily schedules. Our son has had nothing but good things to say about Mrs. W. Mrs. W has exceeded our expectations and has been a blessing in helping our son.
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.
I have over 25 years of diversified business management training.

As a former Director of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs for a local community college, I have extensive college counseling skills in matters of finance and program selection.

Over the years, I have tutored and taught students on various educational levels. I have been very successful teaching children as well as older students in various subjects. I enjoy working with students of all ages. I have tutored students privately aged K-6 in English, reading, writing and in some cases math. I have seven years of experience tutoring students in this age group. I have tutored them in after-school programs and by recommendation by word-of-mouth within the Brunswick County Community. The educational challenges that students face today can be stressful for those that need more individualized help in their various school work. Although I have spent a great deal of time working with high school and college level students, I have tutored children as young as six years old. Each student needs a tutor that is professional, patient, kind and experienced enough to recognize their individual needs and I have all those qualities and more. My goal as a tutor is to improve the academic skills of each student so that they can be successful in school and enjoy learning. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology and a Bachelor of Science degree in political science/communications.
I completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science in 1994. I have spent a great deal of time studying political theory and the American and European modern political process. It is essential that students are aware of the impact that politics plays on economics and culture of any society. The political process can lead governments to work for the benefit of its citizens. I really enjoy teaching this subject matter.

As a professional tutor with many years of experience teaching in various subject areas, tutoring students in speech requires patience and skill. Students can master speech skills once a specified program of testing to determine what is the cause of this type of difficulty is performed. Sometimes the inability to hear words pronounced correctly can lead to speech difficulties. My experience in helping students overcome speech problems spans two years. I have helped over five students overcome speech problems by applying speech therapy processes that I learned by taking various educational academic classes. My students are then able to develop their writing and language skills with great success.
As a professional tutor, with years of experience tutoring students of all ages, I have developed an approach for the improvement of various study skills techniques. I determine the ability and needs of the individual student and design a unique plan of action to give each student the tools they need to improve their study skills in various subject matter. This approach has been very successful over the years. Each student learns differently and needs an individual plan to develop this particular skill-set.
