About Stacy

Learning is integral to life. As such, I believe that every student should have the opportunity to receive one-on-one tutoring, which may prove to be essential in advancing their life's goals. Often, the traditional classroom setting does not provide an environment conducive for individualized learning. My philosophy stands - through intense, consistent and effective personalized tutoring sessions, every student can be successful in their studies. I have been a tutor for over 9 years, focusing primarily on English and Social Sciences. I have had the opportunity to work along with elementary, middle school, high school, and college students. My experiences, throughout the years, have been life enriching and fulfilling for both me and my students.

In addition, I was a high school English and English Literature teacher for 5 years. While this experience was challenging, I grew to appreciate and respect my students for all the hard work they put into their courses. Here is where I discovered a passion for teaching. I will continue to use this passion to assist students in becoming proficient in subject areas that they may find challenging. Currently, I am a Professional English and Social Sciences Tutor at a college institution. I enjoy helping students construct research papers, complete daily written assignments, understand reading materials, cite, using the most current MLA and APA citation formats, and lastly, reviewing and proof reading their papers. In all, my experience as a teacher and tutor may be just what, YOU, prospective students, are looking for in a WyzAnt Tutor. I cannot wait to meet you and start our tutoring journey together!

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.

Criminal Justice

I have recently graduated from the King Graduate Monroe College with an Masters of Science in Criminal Justice, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I learned a great deal from this program and gained deep knowledge and insight from the law enforcement, judicial and political viewpoints of criminology.

Core courses such as Criminological Theory, Ethics in Criminal Justice, Comparative Criminal Justice, Drugs and Alcohol in Criminal Justice, and Terrorism, just to name a few, have equipped me with the skills necessary to work in various Criminal Justice fields, such as, education. I am confident that I will be able to tutor in this field, as well as, aid students in grasping vital concepts, construct thorough research papers and complete other assignments that may find difficult.

Experienced and patient tutor — My son is very selective and doesn't take to people easily. He was very comfortable with Stacy and said it was better to learn from her than attend the sylvan center with their tutors. Stacy arrived early and came fully prepared with a folder with work geared toward his grade level. She knew exactly what he needed to do to improve and she even worked with him emotionally when he got frustrated by ...
