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 believe that I have a wide array of experience tutoring elementary students (pre-k to 6th grade). When I worked as a Literacy Tutor, I conducted a VARK Learning Style assessment on students that range from elementary to high school levels. Once I have the results of the students individual learning styles I am able to make special accommodations that allowed each student to realize their full potential and achieve academic goals. When a child realizes that they have certain strengths their self-esteem and confidence increases and the student enjoys learning and becomes a better reader. This process of acquiring knowledge of learning style allows students in 3rd to 12th grade to feel confident at their present level and progress to the next level where they exceed previous academic goals. At AUM I encouraged inner-city elementary children to read books out loud in order to diagnosis reading level and establish a basis for improving comprehension skills. The goal of the afterschool program is to allow the students to develop analytical skills that allow them to successfully complete their homework assignments. This indirectly allows the students to progress from behind grade level to on grade level in reading, spelling and writing. In addition to my tutoring experience I have worked for 2 years as a preschool teacher using the A Beka Book curriculum. I wrote lesson plans and prepare activities that aid in cognitive skills and language development. I also volunteer in the nursery at my church with children from birth to 3 years old. I am confident that can adapt my teaching to each student’s unique learning style and motivate the students to succeed in all subject areas.
I also have experience volunteering as a Girl Scout Troop leader for girls from ages 5 to 17 years old and a Council Trainer. As a troop leader, I planned and implemented hands on activities for girls in the areas of well-being, outdoors, arts, people, and science. I planned and organized both meetings and trips with the girls in my troop that provided opportunities for the development of new skills and enhancement of intellectual, social and physical abilities. I created newsletters that marketed and informed parents and troop members of activities, awards, and recognitions. As a Trainer of adults I taught the potential troop leaders the responsibilities of leading and co-leading Girl Scouts. The participants were taught hands-on activities that could be done in their meetings with girls in various recreational areas. I have discussed the importance of safety and how to implement certain program ideas with the girls in their troop/group. My community involvement as a Safe Sitter Instructor enables me to be in tune with how students learn in different environmental settings which challenge each child to demonstrate life skills such as CPR and what to do when an infant or a child is choking. I am responsible for ensuring that potential sitters can response quickly and calm when accidents occur.
My educational background includes course work in Teaching Students with Disabilities, Health Education and Behavior, and Instructional Strategies in Classroom Education. The combination of experience and education contributes to my desire to motivate and encourage children to set educational and career goals, and then determine how to achieve their dreams.
