Hello Learners!

I'm Lillie M. and I am a recent college graduate of North Carolina State University (Class of 2015). When I was in school I double majored in Textile Engineering and Polymer and Color Chemistry. I always loved education and fell in love with math and science as I pursued these degrees. My enjoyment for education really blossomed when I had the opportunity to become a teaching assistant for the Computer Science department my sophomore year of college. During this time I was solo teaching a course in an Introduction to Computing Environments for Engineers. Young students that were wishing to pursue engineering went through my course and I worked not only with 25 students in the classroom, but I also worked outside the classroom with them in office hours for one on one lessons to help them catch up on this credit only course. I continued my work in engineering because I knew that I could eventually help young women learn the enjoyment of math and science and see it as an opportunity to create changes in their communities.

I have worked with the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Upstate by mentoring a 14 year old girl in her pursuit of a Computer Science degree. I have also coached youth soccer with 4 and 5 year olds as well as 8 and 9 year old girls. I like to give back as much as I can to others so I have worked with a lot of the youth in the community to show that they can do whatever they aspire to achieve.

As a tutor, I work primarily with those who are struggling with mathematics and science, test preparation for college entrance exams and business applications. I have personal experience struggling with a subject and know how difficult it is to have a desire to want to learn something, but cannot seem to wrap my mind around it. That is why when I work with students I understand their learning style and try to get more background on who they are as an individual to see if there are ways that we can relate the material. I always will have a 30 minute introductory 'lesson' with you or your child and get to know who my student is. This also gives me an opportunity to learn and understand where the trouble areas are. I look at this how I look at my engineering career as a problem solving mission that we can solve together as a team. I have an arsenal of techniques to use to ease the education experience where as a student one wants to become a life long learner. Normally when a student is asking for a tutor it is because they are having a hard time with learning one thing, or multiple things, and there are opportunities to be gained in the area of studying smarter and not harder.

Feel free to message me and get in touch. I am happy to do online lessons as well as in person lessons within a 40 mile radius of Greenville, SC. I am able to meet with students at home, public areas or at my home (as long as you are not allergic to cats!). Feel free to ask me any questions and I will get in touch with you as quickly as possible!

Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

I am able to tutor in Excel because not only do I use this program everyday, but I have programmed in Excel before and have also taken a college course in Excel. I taught a freshman engineering course as well and have developed the program for teaching the portion of Excel for this course.
Project Management,

Project Management

I am currently working on my Green Belt in Six Sigma meaning that my background cannot only be strong in statistics, but I also have to know how to communicate with people. I have held many successful projects in my career by distributing the load of work evenly to my associates as well as in college. I have participated and led leadership and communication seminars, and I have also studied on the most effective methods in which to accomplish a task. I use my background in Excel to help others learn how to make Gantt Charts as well as displaying tasks correctly and effectively.

Visual Basic

I learned Visual Basic as my programming language throughout my engineering program. I have implemented and used visual basic within Excel to create User Forms and macros to aid shop floor associates with their needs. I have also used these tools to develop macros for memorizing flash cards and creating programs for students to aid in studying.

Reading,

Reading

Not only am I an avid reader, but I have spent a high degree of my education as well as outside of school reading technical documents like journals and research as well as analysis of fiction literature. I enjoy working with students on reading comprehension and working on strategies to make them better readers.
Study Skills,

Study Skills

Growing up I have always had to learn proper time management techniques to ensure that I could not only complete all my school work, but also be available to do my extra curricular activities. Due to a limited amount of time, I had to learn how to study smart and not hard. That meant that I needed to learn how to block out my time effectively and also determine learning methods that would help me the most in every subject. Because of this I was able to double major in engineering. While I was in school I also taught other girls how to have proper time management as well as teaching them their learning style. By understanding learning styles as well as communication styles I was able to tutor girls and understand the best methods to reduce the amount of study time required to learn the material.

Piano

I started taking piano lessons when I was in 4th grade, as well as music theory lessons to improve my skills. I competed in competitions for piano and during my senior year of high school I won the entire competition with a perfect performance and music theory score out of 300 students. I also worked with the younger students in the piano studio from beginners to intermediate students. I have learned how to teach proper techniques as well as keeping lessons fun for kids so they would continue to work hard.

Violin

I started taking violin when I was in the 6th grade and changed over to viola when I entered high school. I still have a background in violin, but as a violist I continued on to win scholarships to music camps that were going on at App. State, as well as superior ratings at state and county music competitions. I have also worked with younger students in music before and understand the importance of teaching students proper techniques while still keeping it interesting for their age level. I was also first chair prior to college in multiple orchestras across the upstate for viola. A lot of these skills also transfer to the violin and I was still playing the violin regularly as I continued in viola.

I have been coaching youth soccer for the last year. I have also played soccer since I was about 6 years old and continued on throughout high school. I have just completed coaching my second season at the YMCA of Simpsonville for 4-5 year old coeds and 8-9 year old girls. I am able and willing to work with all age groups on skills and will be happy to work one on one to improve skills.
