Hi!

My name is Angee and I am excited about helping students uncover their love for learning.

Education:

I attend Liberty University. I will have my degree in Educational Psychology at the beginning of August 2016.I will also be taking concurrent graduate classes in School Psychology this January. I have taken many classes which allow me to use educational theories in my tutoring and these have made retention of concepts with my students easier . It is my firm belief that when you know how the brain learns, the student will learn.

Work experience:

I started tutoring in 2009 when I tutored students at my college who were at risk for academic probation. In 2011, I spent a year tutoring a child I was a nanny for so he could enter kindergarten on time. In 2012, I started tutoring professionally for an online tutoring company which led to my face to face tutoring with WyzAnt in 2013. I currently work from home as an independent contractor for an online tutoring company and in my spare time, I like working on making resources for homeschoolers.

I have extensive experience with special needs. This includes being a nanny, tutor and home health aid. I also have experience with IEP's. I very much enjoy these children and am eager to work hard for them. They are often labeled, but I believe they just have a different way of looking at the world.

Teaching Style:

I use many techniques to teach. I first teach according to learning style. This has been EXTREMELY beneficial in my experience and I have seen great results. I also use many aspects of the Cognitive learning theory which states that children learn best when they are motivated to learn. By doing this, children don't just memorize facts. Learning becomes an experience.

I am available most evenings and even during the day. Feel free to contact me. I would love to discuss things further.

I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your educational goals!

I also want to add that I would never want a child to suffer educationally because they could not afford a rate. Please feel free to message me about the hourly rate. I am more the willing to negotiate a rate based on circumstances that is mutually acceptable for both of us.

Common Core

All of my students are currently in public school. Our state is a Common Core state so I often have to research and keep on track of the latest teaching methods for CC.

I more importantly have to show these students how to solve math problems and read from these standards. It is something that is always evolving for me.

Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

I am a developmental psychology student at Liberty University. At the college I tutored at, I tutored to special needs kids and I nanny special needs children. I have a lot of experience designing curriculum that fits their learning style. With ADHD it is about getting a lot done in a short period of time. I have learned that if I allow my students breaks, they perform better. Also it is about recognizing their frustrations and helping them to conquer them.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am a developmental psychology student at Liberty University. At the college I tutored at, I tutored to special needs kids and I nanny special needs children. I have a lot of experience designing curriculum that fits their learning style. I deal with Autism in the same way I deal with Aspergers. It's about patience, repetition and verbal communication enhancement. My students, just like my Asperger students would often get frustrated and strike out so I would give them a place to calm down and often time if they had something that comforted them such as a favorite stuff animal, I would make sure they had that as well. Tutoring Autism students is a fine balance between learning and not overloading their senses so I take that into consideration when I tutor them. Often time they strike out not because they are undisciplined but because they are overwhelmed.
Special Needs,

Special Needs

I am a developmental psychology student at Liberty University. At the college I tutored at, I tutored to special needs kids and I nanny special needs children. I have a lot of experience designing curriculum that fits their learning style. I have worked with all sorts of special needs such as ADHD/ODD/ASPERGERS, etc. I work with them on a case by case basis and tailor my teaching around their needs. One example was I tutored a student with a visual impairment. I would often type her notes for class in large font so she could read them and we would give her textbooks to her on CD.
