About Audra


Bio

I have always loved tutoring - seeing that spark as a concept clicks with my student for the first time, helping them build confidence in their ability to grasp and retain knowledge. For each of my students, I work to discover tools they already have: their strengths, interests, and learning style. We then use these tools to build up knowledge/proficiency in the subject area.

I have always loved tutoring - seeing that spark as a concept clicks with my student for the first time, helping them build confidence in their ability to grasp and retain knowledge. For each of my students, I work to discover tools they already have: their strengths, interests, and learning style. We then use these tools to build up knowledge/proficiency in the subject area. This personalized approach has allowed me to bring many students up to an achievement level that better reflects their potential. For example, I once took on a student who had never passed a vocabulary quiz. Because of these repeated failures, he considered himself incapable of learning the material. We sat down together and talked about what each of the words meant. We discovered together that every vocab term in the lesson was connected to something he had heard of and could understand. After one study session, the young man earned a perfect score on his vocab quiz for the first time.

I graduated with honors in Bible and Religion from Anderson University in 2013. I have a strong background in individual instruction, as a former Sylvan Learning Center Director with 10+ years of tutoring experience. Having studied Spanish from 7th grade through my senior year and Minor in Spanish Language at AU, I can tutor all levels. I also tutor all levels of English classes, including vocabulary, grammar, and writing skills. Although I specialize in English, Spanish, Test Prep, and Speech, I am also proficient in Math, Social Studies and Science.

That's about it. Please reach out with any questions you have/ to schedule our first session. Can't wait to get to work!

Really pleased With ACT writing prompt help

Audra is working with my daughter with the ACT writing prompt. My daughter is tough to please and Audra has done a great job. I highly recommend her. Communication from Audra has been great. We will use her when the youngest is ready for ACT/SAT help.

Online 1-on-1 Learning Experience

Audra is terrific! Very patient, thorough and flexible. I just had the 3 lessons with Audra and I really enjoyed the lesson with her. She is quite different from other teachers that I met so far. She explained the rationale behind concepts. I am so lucky to meet her!! Thank you Audra so much for all your help.

Jasy, 3 lessons with Audra

Knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.

Audra tutors my daughter with Algebra 1. She's always very patient and a pleasure to work with. What I love most is Audra's ability to have my daughter engage interactively. I have noticed my daughter is more confident in her ability to understand different formulas and techniques. Audra is awesome!
