About Alima

My name is Alima and I am a recent college graduate. I have a Bachelors in Sociology with a minor in Psychology. I was a proud member of the Honor Society and Pi Gamma Mu. I hope to go back to school for a degree in education or the medical field. I first started tutoring children as a volunteer tutor when I was 16 years old. I tutored children in 2nd and 3rd grade with reading, math, writing and study skills. My students improved within the period I was there. In 2011, I was a private tutor for two students in the 4th grade. One was in special education focusing on his general courses and getting his assignments down in a reasonable time. The other, I helped tutor her in math and improve her test scores. Showing her it is important to go over for test before submitting it. In 2011, I also did observation at two elementary schools in computers, math and special education. I was a camp counselor at three camps and was named best counselor of the week at one and overall best counselor at another. I am looking to tutor around my schedule and to the best of my ability to your needs. I am a dedicated worker and enjoy seeing children succeed. My name is Alima and I am a recent college graduate.

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.

General Computer

My first job was working at the public library at age 16. I would help patrons with general computer task such as saving, printing and using office. In my freshman year of college, I took Computer Tools 101 which focused on MS Office: Word, Powerpoint, Excel and Access. I received an A in that course. I never had to use MS Access after that course so my skills are a bit rusty on it. I currently work at a tech store which revolves around using the computer and testing items for the functionality. I am constantly testing laptops whether its Windows 7, Windows 8 or a Mac. I would consider myself computer savvy.
