About Victoria

Hi! My name is Victoria and I am available for tutoring specifically in areas of English. A little about me, I am a college student with a major in English. For high school, I attended a college preparatory academy and was in Honors and AP Classes, graduating with a 3.6 GPA. I also was very involved in extracurricular activities including Band, Piano, Theatre, and Public Speaking Club. While in high school, I volunteered in the summer at my local library in a program created to foster younger children's love for reading. I truly enjoyed observing how well children in the program improved in their reading abilities. As a volunteer in the program, I gained valuable skills like patience and consideration. I also grew in my ability to lead others, which has helped me profoundly in college.

I also am currently an RA of a Residential Learning Community called Emerging Leaders. As the leader of the community, I plan, coordinate, and market events affiliated with leadership for my residents. I also have been involved in two service-learning classes, where I learned both in the classroom and outside it by completing outside service hours, which helped me to foster a sense of social justice. I also am currently employed at the SJU Writing Center as a tutor for the greater Saint Joseph's community, and help fellow students work on papers and formulate their thoughts and ideas in a clear coherent manner.

Not only would I seek to help prospective students from Wyzant improve academically, I would also help to facilitate a love of learning and necessary study skills for future endeavors. If you are interested in my tutoring services, please get in touch. Thank you.

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.

Reading

I have worked with elementary school students in Philadelphia through service in after school programs which included fun activities and homework completion in the fall of 2015. I also will be teaching students, of a middle school age, English in France this summer of 2016.

Study Skills

My familiarity with study skills is born from my own experience as a hardworking student with a rigorous course load in high school. In order to excel, I acquired important skills that enabled me to apply myself in an organized fashion, or in other words, with structure. If I was to tutor your child in preparation for an upcoming exam, I would help him or her create a study guide that draws from different areas of class material, like in-class work and quizzes/previous exams.

Writing

Throughout high school, I completed two AP English courses and received a score of 700 in the Writing section of the SAT. I am currently an English major in college seeking to evolve in my ability to proofread and help others in their writing.
