About Seth

I recently graduated with a BA from Lyon College in Batesville, AR. I am interested in tutoring high school and junior high school students. During college, I worked for The APPLE Project, which is a rigorous program geared towards helping high school students from underprivileged homes get into college and improve their academic standing. During my time at APPLE, I tutored subjects such as English, history, civics, and social sciences. This has been one of my favorite jobs, and I love to work with teenagers. I have particular interest in helping students whose primary language is not English; I do have limited Spanish skills, so my preference is that the student is able to communicate clearly in English, but who struggles with the language, such as the grammar, structure, etc.

I also worked with students with low proficiency in literacy, and I focused on assisting these students with their reading, writing, grammar, mechanics, punctuation, and spelling skills. I also volunteered with the Ozark Foothills Literacy Project, which helps adults with low levels of literacy.

I am extremely patient and am willing to use multiple methods to help students learn. I can guarantee I will be extremely thorough with students, but I will work at a pace that is comfortable for him/her, and we will tackle problem areas one at a time. I frequently enjoy discussing topics that students struggle with, in an attempt to help them think about them in different ways. Overall, I can guarantee that I will work my hardest to ensure the student not only learns, but learns thoroughly and enjoys the experience.
