About Valerie

I love learning and helping others learn. I began tutoring ten years ago and have not stopped since. In addition to private tutoring, I have tutored though college programs and professional tutoring services. I have also been an instructor for a home school group and after school programs. My favorite subjects are English, Literature, Writing, Reading, Social Studies, Speech Prep, and Study Skills. I also love helping students beat the ACT Test. Beyond having years of ACT tutoring experience, I also have an Masters degree in Business and two Bachelors degrees in fields (History and Political Science) that heavily emphasized reading, writing, analysis, and critical thinking.

I grew up in the wonderful communities of Guthrie and Edmond, Oklahoma, graduating high school at Oklahoma Christian Schools (OCS). Their academic rigor and my need to obtain college scholarships pushed me to study the ACT until I achieved my goal of over a 30 (I made a 31). I suffered through numerous ACT classes and books, painstakingly improving my score. It was only later, as a standardized test tutor, that I realized I had approached the ACT the wrong way. Foolishly thinking I could learn all the material that the ACT may or may not cover, I had studied away. My experience and how much I disliked some ACT subjects inspires me to make studying for the ACT as quick and painless as possible while still achieving the desired results. Whether your goal is a 21 or 35, I tutor tailored to your needs, strengths, and weaknesses.

Information you probably don't need to know – I am also a real estate Broker. I enjoy bird and squirrel watching, playing board games (especially when I change the rules), puzzles, and reading. My favorite movie is Kingdom of Heaven. I enjoy slow days in the country and time on the family farm (Favorite animal is a sheep). They are kind, trusting, patient, loving, and strong. Unless of course they are trained otherwise, yikes! I love to see and appreciate the world. I visited 47 states, 4 Canadian provinces, Mexico, Jamaica, Malta, Greece, Israel, Turkey, England, Scotland, Ireland and Italy twice.

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.
