Dear Potential Student,
I am super-excited about the opportunity to tutor and enable a generation of young people to succeed. I am someone who likes to laugh and have fun, but I am also driven by success. I promise I will bring that same determination and hard work ethic each time we sit down for a tutoring session. My skills are very high in English, writing, history, social studies, geography, sports training, and certain areas of math and science. Two of the many things I love in life are sports and food. I particularly enjoy eating food while watching sports; what a treat that is! My heart is for this generation of young people, and together I believe we will succeed and work our way to a brighter tomorrow.
I have been working with young people in a variety of areas since 2005. I have experience in youth ministry, as a camp counselor, and I do have experience tutoring students on a part time basis. My tutoring method is to be intentional about success and results. I will be flexible in how I present subjects, and I present them in such a way that allows the student to learn the material in the most effective ways. I am very big about using object lessons and methods that allow for easy, effective memorization. Personally, I wouldn't consider myself brilliant in any area, but that allows me to see and teach subjects like a normal person. I won't skip over steps, and I will give 100 percent each time I tutor your young person.
I have both a Bachelor's and Master's degree. My tutoring approach is a very hands-on approach. I believe students learn best when they learn and receive information through a variety of senses, and not just hearing. Currently, I tutor students one day a week at the Boys and Girls Club. This experience has allowed me to work with students who are at a variety of different learning levels. I would characterize myself as being very patient, and I am someone who doesn't get frustrated easily. I am excited and passionate about learning, flexible in my approach, will be prompt and focused during our lesson, and will give everything so your young person can succeed. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
Pre-Algebra is the foundation of most all of math. These are skills that a young person needs in many areas of life. My goal is to take time in teaching these skills, so the skills are perfected and they will transfer into other areas of math.
I do find the best way to communicate and teach possible. My experience with young people has taught me that all children and teenagers are different. It is my goal to find out how your son or daughter learns the skills of pre-algebra most effectively. I then seek to use that context to maximize our time together. My heart and passion are for the success of this generation.
As a reading tutor my focus is both on comprehension and pronunciation. I will strive to meet your child needs, as we read a variety of material: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, magazine articles, and a variety of other materials. We will learn through patience and repetition.
I will use my patience and experience to bring about success reading both in and out of the classroom. I see reading as foundational to all areas of life, and I will make sure that your child succeeds in reading.
