Clemson University (Psychology)
I am a hard-working Clemson University graduate whose tutoring specialties are English, German, and Social Studies. I believe that through hard work and diligence, any subject is learnable by any student, and any student can succeed. My mother is a high school english teacher and my father is a Lutheran pastor who has written many books, so I have been raised around grammar and literature since I was a small child. I placed into a 3rd-semester-level German course my freshman year at Clemson, and took four subsequent semesters. I consider myself to be proficient, if not fluent, in German, and have written papers for German courses (in German, of course) at least ten pages long. I majored in psychology while at Clemson, and received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in May of 2013. My preferred fields of study are social and personality psychology, and I worked on a Creative Inquiry research team my senior year at Clemson, developing a situation taxonomy to describe and categorize various situations and the effect that they have on personality and behavior and vice versa, specifically in a work setting. I have experience tutoring children with autism via work through the South Carolina Early Autism Project, where I administered ABA (applied behavior analysis) therapy to children ranging from pre-school aged to those entering the 4th grade. I also have experience working with children at Camp Lutheridge, a summer church camp in the North Carolina mountains. At Lutheridge, I was a counselor for children ranging from entering first and second grade all the way through high school, and my specialty was working with developmentally-disabled adults and youths. As a result, I have grown to love working with children to meet their academic and developmental needs. I hope to pursue a career in counseling psychology, so that I may continue to help others grow and develop for the rest of my professional career. When I am not on the job, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, writing, watching movies and television, rocking climbing, and hanging out with friends and playing with my cat Leia (named for Princess Leia of Star Wars fame).

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.
