Great Basin College (Secondary Education)
I have had a passion for English since I was a little girl. Growing up, most children wanted to be firefighters, ballerinas and astronauts; I wanted to be a teacher. Since then, I have pursued this journey and am currently going to college for Secondary Education with an emphasis in English. I have also minored in theatre but am considering a move to communication studies.
While in high school I graduated in the top of my class and took many honors, advanced placement and college courses. English was always my best subject and I completed English 101 and 102 my senior year. I am especially talented at writing. Also, throughout high school and college I have been highly active in theatre and speed and debate.
Even when I'm not concentrating on my academic endeavors, I love helping others reach their potential. I have been been tutoring and helping family and friends for several years. I believe everyone has the potential to reach their goals.
I also have teaching experience; going to college I have taken several tutoring jobs and shadowed some teachers. I have experience as a preschool teacher (which confirmed how much patience I have) and am currently working in a daycare.
My hours are fairly flexible and I am determined to schedule a time and place that works well for everyone. I would love to hear from you! I have had a passion for English since I was a little girl.

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.
Throughout my life, I have been highly involved in Speech and Debate. I was involved in many different events including persuasive, expository, interpretation, impromptu, storytelling, congress and debate. I won a trophy at every tournament and made it to Nationals my senior year. Since graduating high school I have judged several tournaments and helped coach my local team. I have given speeches to crowds of hundreds spectators and gone to local schools to tell them about public speaking. I have also taken several speech, communication and theatre classes.
