While I'm new to tutoring, I've spent many years helping others, throughout my time in High School many students sought assistance from me in the subject of English. I was very active in 4-H and FFA, as well as the Band and Jazz Band. I consider it an honor to help others which is why I have decided to begin tutoring. I will charge a far lower rate than most tutors due to a lack of significant experience. I spent several years as a member of the Florien First Baptist Church, during which time I worked as a missionary and a Volunteer throughout the community. I often filled in as the Youth Sunday School Teacher in lieu of the actual teacher. At the time I did this I was only 16-18. I've always been told I'm very gifted with helping others, so why not put it to use!! When it comes to English, Grammar, and the proper use of the English language in general, I feel as though our students are not being given enough attention. Social media has corrupted and destroyed the English language, and I consider it a mission in life to help the next generation, and the current generation to understand and grow in our native tongue. As for Literature, I feel it a travesty that so many students are not thoroughly instructed in the writings of old! However the comprehension of the material is rather difficult to some and in this manner, I can help simplify the often difficult to understand language used. I can help to increase spelling, comprehension, grammar and English scores through focused and patient instruction, utilizing simple tricks for memorizing materials. In psychology, I can help students learn the sometimes tedious amounts of data needed to pass the course and understand it's material. I can do this through teaching them how to properly take notes in these two courses, and explaining the usefulness of said courses. I will never make anything overly complicated, instead I will make everything as simple, and painless as possible as well as try to incorporate a little bit of fun into it! My experience is limited in the tutoring field, however I am very capable and very willing to reduce rates for the first 10 students, in order to better build my experience. I am not here to become rich or wealthy, I am here to help others succeed, and ensure that the future is bright!

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.
