Southeastern Community College (Education)
I work for the state of NC, I have an applied science associates degree in early childhood. I also have Administrator 2 credentials for running a child care business. I am a substitute for Columbus County schools on my days off. I have tutored children in the past who struggled with class work, and I worked in a position in the mental health field for a few years that required me to work in the school system with children. I am also used to working with children who may need a different approach to learning material due to a learning disability since working in the mental health field, as well as my oldest child having ADHD. Besides my work and school, I am a mother of two small children, so I am well aware of the type of work they are required to do in young grades now as well I love being able to work with children towards reaching their educational goals,and seeing the look they get on their face when they achieve something on their own with hard work.
I specialize in teaching reading, that is my best subject, and the one I have the most experience with tutoring, I am able to help with writing and vocabulary as well. I am also able to help with computer based programs such as Microsoft word, power point, and even prezi, which is a complete online program.
I am well experienced in helping children with learning disabilities from working closely with them in school and at home while I was a community support specialist. I also have personal experience dealing with Asperger's Syndrome since I have a close family member that has it. I am experienced with ADHD as well since my husband, step-son, and my oldest son is diagnosed ADHD. My teaching method is figuring out what the child does know, which points are his/her strongest and using those to build a strong enough learning foundation to build the skills that they need to continue learning.
I have a 12 hour cancellation notice policy, and a no cell phone while studying policy. Children should have as little distractions as possible while studying to help them focus on the material they are trying to learn.
I look forward to hopefully being able to help you and your child as well with achieving the feeling of success. I don't think anything feels better than knowing you can complete something on your own after putting in the hard work and effort to learn it.

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 helped others pass the ASVAB test by helping them prepare for the test and getting them familiar with the test format.
I usually substitute for the younger grades when I work (between 2nd and 7th grade). I am currently enrolled in college to finish my associate's degree in early education, I have two semesters left. I have already obtained my teaching certificate in early education.
