About Courtney

I love tutoring because I enjoy sharing information and watching what others can do with it. I began tutoring early on in school when I was granted independent study in my AP English Class. To validate my work, my professor had me come in and teach a lesson plan on a book the class had just finished. After that, students began soliciting my opinion on their work and I found it very fulfilling when they succeeded as a result. In college, I validated Freshman Composition at West Point but still served as a company tutor. I went on to help my classmates and under class cadets with their writing. As a Commissioned Officer, I still edited papers for Soldiers, NCO's, fellow Officers, and even a civilian counterpart. Now that I am leaving the Army, I am pursuing a Master's degree. I am considering going into teaching full time and believe tutoring will offer me the flexibility and experience to make this decision and help others while doing so.

I scored a 10 on the essay section of the SAT in high school. I validated Freshman Composition by scoring a 5 on the English AP Test in 2007 and I also scored in the 93rd percentile on the GRE writing section in 2016. In the military, I frequently had to produce clearly written products and present them to groups, developing skills in public speaking.

Please feel free to contact me regarding your tutoring needs! I would love to meet you and see how we can help you or your child reach your goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT English

I scored a 31 on the ACT English portion.

English

English is my first language and favorite subject. I have performed well on English tests throughout school. I earned a 5 on the AP English Exam, validated Composition 101 in College and have served as an English tutor since then. I specialize in tutoring individuals from elementary school through adulthood.

Portuguese

I majored in Portuguese in College. I have been sent to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Lisbon, Portugal; and Cabo Verde, Africa to work on my language skills by the U.S. Army. I also attended a semester at the Instituto Militar de Engenharia in Rio de Janeiro.

Reading

Reading is my favorite hobby. Because of my love for reading, I have performed well on English tests throughout school. I earned a 5 on the AP English Exam, 31 on the English Section of the ACT, validated Composition 101 in College and have served as an English tutor since then. I specialize in tutoring individuals from elementary school through adulthood. When tutoring an individual who is having issues in literature, I read the book they're working on in order to better assist them.

Study Skills

I currently tutor study skills through Varsity Tutors and through Wyzant. I also took an elective in college that covered speed reading and study skills.

Swimming

I swam on teams in elementary and high school. I served as junior lifeguard. I trained with college swim team for one summer in college but was not fast enough to make the cut. I tested into advanced swimming in college (required course at United States Military Academy at New York, grade on transcripts), served as an official tutor for swimming, swam and competed in Master's Leagues in indoor and outdoor swim events. Outdoor events included distances up to 2.5 miles in a river.

Writing

I enjoy writing and have performed very well on writing assessments. Most recently, I scored in the 93rd percentile for the GRE Analytical writing section. I have been tutoring writing since College, where I served as a designated tutor, I have continued tutoring writing since then and have worked with all ages from elementary school children through adulthood.
