About Durrell


Bio

Thank you for reviewing my profile. I believe that teaching and mentoring are callings, and that these careers should be taken quite seriously. The positive impact of thoughtful, accurate tutoring is priceless and unmatched.

Thank you for reviewing my profile. I believe that teaching and mentoring are callings, and that these careers should be taken quite seriously. The positive impact of thoughtful, accurate tutoring is priceless and unmatched.

While a student at Lebanon Valley College, I had 3 classroom practicum experiences, which taught me the tenets of teachings in actual practice as a Teacher's Assistant. I worked in learning support, development disability and mainstream classroom settings throughout the Lebanon School district. I become proficient and advanced in all core subjects, with particular care given to Study Strategies and multitask management.

Tutoring Methods: General Assessment of all coursework, course assignments, daily schedule, etc.
Creating of a calendar with placement of test/quiz dates, etc.
Placement of pertinent dates (tests, doctor appointment).
Study Strategies: How to study without cramming.
Core Subjects: Using mnemonic devices, calculators, notebooks, etc. to teach lesson.

Deciding not to make teaching my full-time career, I entered full-time employment at State Government as a Descriptive Statistician for the PA Department of Labor and Industry. My work deals much the analysis of data and the reporting of employment and wages from ALL PA businesses.

Have a Great Day!
