About Talea

As a Senior this year at Pepperdine University, I am double majoring in Business Administration and Philosophy to prepare for a career in finance law. I graduated as valedictorian of my high school, Class of 2013, with an un-weighted 4.0 GPA.

I am a dedicated student and AP veteran interested in a variety of subjects; I took AP classes ranging from AP Calculus and AP Physics to AP European History, AP U.S. History, and AP English. Due to my distinguished performances on several tests I was presented with the AP Scholar Award. With a score of 2000, I was in the top 20% of the nation for standardized testing, and can help with test preparation for the SAT and AP tests alike.

My strongest subject areas are English, writing, and literature. I was Editor-In-Chief of my high school paper, and have been published and nationally recognized as a student journalist. However, I am well-equipped to tutor in math, language, and business as well. I am able to help with any math up to and including calculus, and I have extensive experience with Microsoft and Adobe design and business programs. I took four years of French in high school, and have spent quite a bit of time abroad practicing so I am able to tutor elementary level french.

I have formally tutored before, and I am the first person all of my friends go to when they need assistance. I am a focused, clear, and disciplined instructor; I will find a learning style that best suits my students needs and make sure they are improving. I am organized, and timely, but most importantly compassionate. I have a strong desire to see my students succeed and obtain the grade and level of comprehension they need.

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.

Adobe InDesign

I have used Adobe InDesign for the past five years as a journalist. I was Editor-In-Chief of my high school paper, and used InDesign every day to format the design of the paper. My staff and I used templates I designed every issue, and I approved and edited all designs before publication. My publication received national recognition from the National Student Journalism Association for our design accomplishments.

Bible Studies

I attended a private Christian school from pre-school until 9th grade, where Bible classes were a mandatory part of the curriculum. Then when high school began, I began working on Sundays as a 4-5th grade Sunday school teacher for Countryside Community Church, creating my own curriculum based around the Orange group's curriculum. Currently, I attend Pepperdine University, a private Christian college, where I am enrolled in a religion class, and excelling at the material.

Talea is the overachieving teen whisperer!

Talea was so great! She came to us the same day we reached out and helped bring my perfectionist daughter off the proverbial cliff! She provided great writing advise and got the job done quickly! My daughter and I were both so impressed and look forward to use Talea's tutoring service again! Highly recommended!
