About Mercedes

As a child, I enjoyed learning all the time. I still do and I do not believe that it should be mundane or run of the mill. Learning should be memorable and personalized because every student is unique and different. Everyone learns differently and at different rates. What I intend to offer is quality lessons and a time that your children will look forward to. I want them to walk away with a better understanding of what ever subject we cover.

If you choose to let me tutor your child I would require a lengthy conversation with the parents about the specifics of what the child needs help in. From here I would devise a plan of attack that would include unique worksheets, active learning, and entertaining discussion tailored to the student's needs and interests. The knowledge of something as small as a few hobbies can make learning a new subject easy. Giving them everyday connections that they will remember for the rest of their life is important.

The reason that I feel that by choosing me you would be making an excellent choice is because I have a passion for teaching children. I'm currently attending college as an English Major and previous to that I started out as an Early Childhood Education Major. I've taken courses such as Creative Experiences and Elements of Mathematics which have given me knowledge to help children with subjects that they struggle in. Not only do I have the knowledge to teach them but I have the patience and the interest to guide them through every step that 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.

Bible Studies

From 6th to 10th grade I attended a private Christian Academy. I also taught a Sunday School Class for a short amount of time while I was a bus captain for my local church. My particular specialty is the Old Testament.

Volleyball

I played Volleyball for four years in high school and still enjoy the sport very much. I was starting server for most games and completely understand the rules and dynamics of a typical Volleyball game.
