About Miya

I graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology. I also obtained a certificate in Early Childhood Education from Ashworth College. Currently, I am pursuing a Master's degree in Child and Adolescent psychology at Capella University.

I have 7 years experience working with children from preschool age to fifth grade. During this time, I worked with autistic and typically developing children. I use auditory, visual, and kinetic learning techniques in order for the child to discover their abilities and gain confidence.

I look forward to teaching and motivating your child to reach their highest potential. Feel free to send me a message with any questions or to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your child's needs.

Background Check: Passed

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

After receiving my undergraduate degree, I moved forward and obtained a certification as a paraeducator. I am able to use this knowledge to help children in both preschool and grade school. My tutoring methods work with the individual needs of the student and help them learn to use what they learn in school as they go about their daily lives and give them confidence to move ahead.

Grammar

During high school, I spent a significant amount of time tutoring students for the grammar portion of the Ohio Graduation Test. Additionally, in college, I took a number of English courses. Tutoring methods for this subject including using worksheets to allow students to demonstrate their knowledge of grammar as well as flashcards.

Reading

As an avid reader, I always look forward to the opportunity to help others in whatever area of reading they may need. Tutoring methods for this subject include allowing students to bring their own favorite reading material and testing their ability to understand context clues in the text.

Spelling

My tutoring methods for spelling include memorization and regular quizzes to help the correct spelling stay with the student.

Study Skills

As a student, I have always been required to have excellent study skills in order to maintain my own grades, even in subjects that I don't particularly enjoy. This skill was a great help to me when I tutored a student. I worked with this student for five years in all subjects and helped him develop a great work ethic by creating a lesson plan that focused on time management. Additionally, we used the Pomodoro method to ensure that he was getting the most out of each session. I believe I can help your child develop the study and organizational skills he or she needs in order to achieve academic success.

Vocabulary

I have found flashcards to be helpful when working with vocabulary. In addition to flashcards, students will write out sentences using the vocabulary words as well as fit them into a conversation. This will help them understand the words in context.
