I have been training adults for over 15 years. I've also been a cub/boy scout leader for 10 years when my son was of age. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English with a minor in Elementary Education which I accomplished while working full time. I prefer one-on-one tutoring so I can customize lessons based on the student's learning style. If your child is being treated for or recovering from an illness or injury, I am willing to travel to the hospital/rehab facility for lessons, once physician approved and schedule lessons around your child's medical treatment plan.

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.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in English with a minor in Elementary Education. I have assisted several ADD/ADHD children gain confidence in completing their classwork when my son was of age. Several of my son's friends were diagnosed with ADD and/or ADHD. Many gained confidence in reading, public speaking, English, spelling, science, history, and creative writing in elementary school as a result of my guidance. These students also gained confidence in developing solid study habits which enhanced their learning experiences. As subjects became more detailed, I assisted them in revising their studying skills to assist in both time management and deeper subject comprehension.
I have taken 15 college credits in education which included theory and application as part of my BA in English. Examples include Math for the Elementary Educator I and II which provided opportunities to integrate real life examples to explore math and learning concepts. Models & Theories of Instruction provided the means of applying the 5 different learning styles into any curriculum, including blended styles or multiple styles of learning.
I have also been a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader for ten years, providing direction to many boys (ages 8-17)as they earned rank advancements and merit badges.
As a private tutor outside of WyzAnt, I have provided personalized lessons for elementary aged students in reading, vocabulary, earth science, U.S. history, social studies/world cultures, music appreciation, arts appreciation, literature/poetry, health/nutrition,as well as pre-K preparation for children aged 4-5.
I have completed 15 college credits in communications as well as work-related courses in effective communications, including public speaking. I have successfully trained over 40 adults as a part of my job.
I have trained adults in a variety of subjects, including effective communications for over 20 years, providing multiple examples in a variety of learning styles and business settings.
I have written and presented speeches in a variety of settings from local boy scouting ceremonies (including 7 Eagle Scout ceremonies) to award presentation ceremonies.
Study skills are an important tool in learning. For myself, it was the difference in attaining high grades versus mediocre grades while working toward my Bachelor's Degree while working full time. I have shared many of my study skills with fellow students who are in the same position as I was a few years ago. Additionally, I have assisted elementary and high school students with determining their study/learning style. Using this element, we worked toward developing study skills to assist them in gaining a higher level of learning and studying.
