I have been working as an Academic Coach at the Citadel since 2010. I love working with college students but wanted to branch out and work with younger students. I spent two years working with children who have Autism through the Early Autism Project and spent the last year tutoring grades 1 - 12 with the Life Management Center (all while still working at the Citadel).
My favorite thing about tutoring is seeing a student finally make a connection that they have been missing. This might mean that math concept finally clicks, understanding why scheduling your studying is so important or understanding a difficult reading passage!

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 tutored middle school science (and all subjects) for the past year and a half with students at Charleston Day, Porter Gaud, Buist, Math and Science Charter and School for the Arts.
I have been working as a Learning Specialist on the College level since 2010. I have earned a Master Level Tutor Certification from the College Reading and Learning Association. I also run the Academic Coaching Program at the Citadel, which specializes in teaching study skills.
