About Rhett

Hello,

My name is Rhett and I am looking forward to helping you improve your skills in a variety of subjects. I am a certified Secondary Education Citizenship teacher, with an upcoming B.A. in History from Bloomsburg University in May of 2015. I will graduate at the top of my class and have experience working with all ages of students from primary and secondary education, to assisting students at the collegiate level as well. My expertise deals with all aspects of reading, writing, public speaking, history, government, economics, and social sciences, such as psychology and sociology.

I often find that students who are struggling with their academics improve most with individualized instruction. After meeting with you and/or your parent guardian, we can, together, find a plan that will best assist you with your goals and ultimately, ensure you reach these goals in a timely manner. I pride myself on patience, diligence, and a genuine desire to help students achieve. All students are capable of success, it simply takes determining which path will allow them to find this success and guiding them through the process. If you feel my background and teaching strategy would suit you, please do not hesitate to contact me and we can arrange tutoring sessions accordingly. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Common Core

My Secondary Education major at Bloomsburg University, along with my student teaching experience at Camp Hill High School have immersed me into the utilization and implementation of Common Core in the public school system. Not only am I familiar with the details of Common Core, but I understand how it is applied to state tests, and how it affects educators and students on a routine basis. Furthermore, I am able to help navigate through its provisions for those who are less familiar with its requirements.

Criminal Justice

My internship with the Pennsylvania Governor's Office of Homeland Security provided me the opportunity to acquire extensive knowledge about state and federal law related to homeland security, along with law enforcement at the local, state, and federal level as well. I also have a certification in Secondary Education Citizenship

Political Science

With a certification in Secondary Education Citizenship (which is inclusive of Political Science) and a government internship with the Pennsylvania Department of Homeland Security, I have demonstrated extensive book and practical knowledge in political science and government as a whole.

Social Studies

I have passed all four Praxis Tests I have taken. I have passed the Praxis I, which includes Reading, Writing and Math. I have also passed Citizenship Content Knowledge, which allows me to teach History (US and World), Geography, Political Science/Government, and Economics at the secondary level. I also passed the Social Studies Content Knowledge test, with a high ranking score of 192, which allows me to teach all subjects under the Citizenship tests, and the social sciences of Psychology and Sociology.

Writing

I do have experience with graduate school writing, as I have applied and been accepted to law school, which requires numerous writing samples, and most specifically, the all-important personal statement.
