About Courtney

Hi! My name is Courtney and I am a graduate of Ursinus College. I graduated with a 3.41 GPA and majored in American Studies as well as minored in both English and Psychology. I am currently a substitute teacher and coach.

I love kids and have worked with those ages 3-18 over the course of the past 6 years in many different areas. I have coached young girls in lacrosse and high school students in basketball (3 years). I was also a tutor in high school as well as a Hall Prefect and a Peer leader and then a freshman orientation leader in college. During the summer of 2014, I spent a month teaching English to elementary school age children in San Jose, Costa Rica.

My main expertise is English/Reading/Language Arts and History (mainly American) but also have experience tutoring in elementary/middle school math and science. I have also played soccer and basketball since a young age as well having played college lacrosse.

I'm very outgoing and patient and don't mind taking the extra time to get results. I'm a big fan of flashcards and repetition but am versatile in order to meet your child's needs, ensuring a dynamic, hands-on approach.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

My degree from Ursinus College is in American Studies, mainly history and English. I have taken an extensive number of classes in both subjects in order to expand my knowledge of the topics. I also interned at the Peter Wentz homestead: one of the many of George Washington's headquarters during the Revolutionary War (Battle of Germantown). While there, I did extensive research on the family, 17th and 18th century women, and the Revolutionary War. I spent a year writing about my research, which the site uses, as well as have done 3 presentations on the research I compiled. In high school, I completed both Honors U.S. History and AP U.S. History (scoring a 4 on the AP test).

Lacrosse

I have been playing lacrosse since my freshman year of high school. I went on to play D3 college lacrosse. I have participated in coaching clinics for 3-8 year old girls in Pennington, NJ as well as a clinic/play day at Ursinus for middle school and high school girls.

Public Speaking

My degree is in American Studies, mainly history and English, meaning I spent much of my time in college reading, writing, and completing oral presentations. I was also a freshman orientation leader, which involved giving many presentations to parents and students on a number of topics including sex, drugs, and alcohol on a college campus. I was also a tour guide while interning at The Peter Wentz Farmstead, which was home to George Washington's headquarters during the Battle of Germantown.

Social Studies

My degree from Ursinus College is in American Studies, mainly history and English. I have taken an extensive number of classes in both subjects in order to expand my knowledge of the topics. I also interned at the Peter Wentz homestead: one of the many of George Washington's headquarters during the Revolutionary War (Battle of Germantown). I have also taken several politics classes and scored a 4 on both my AP European History and AP U.S. History exams.

Study Skills

I have tutored kids ages 8-18 in study skills for a number of years. I also have excellent study and time management skills of my own. I work to expand a child's skills in reading, comprehension, and retaining presented material. I like to use textbooks and other course materials and I encourage my students to make flashcards. I am also good with scheduling review sessions as well as helping to create lasting study habits.

Writing

I was a reading and writing tutor throughout high school and college. I'm great with grammar, punctuation and formatting as well bibliographies and citing sources.
