About Whitney

I graduated with honors from Whitefield Theological Seminary and have 10 years of private tutoring experience under my belt. I absolutely love learning, teaching, and watching the reflective glint of understanding in my pupils' eyes ( I am very non-intimidating, but firm). I have experience in all of the subjects listed, but specialize particularly in writing---simple sentences, basic grammar, paragraphs, five-point essays, and research papers. I believe that education is a tool, beginning with the fear of the Lord and working out to His glory. I am a passionate Christian and teacher with experience in writing curricula as well as one-on-one tutelage and collective classrooms.

I illustrated and wrote for a newspaper for nearly three years and have produced illustrations for published books. I love everything about learning and teaching---right down to the type and pictures in books :). I prefer the use of Skype in teaching as it allows for more versatility in tutelage and saves everyone the trouble of gas finances and undue trouble :).

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.” Henry Ford


I have had the privilege of privately tutoring pre-Algebra and Algebra for 5 years and like to in all things begin with a solid foundation, working outward---NEVER moving on nonsensically before the basics are well-grounded. This best fits the pupil for a confident and able mindset.

I have privately tutored for a total of ten years, working with varying ages and stages of understanding. I have seen students flourish from an obscure understanding of simple sentences to a firm grasp of essays.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher who graduated with Academic Honors in the field of Elementary Education. I have ten years' experience in tutoring pupils from various experience and understanding, and absolutely enjoy every minute of watching the "light" turn on in learning. I tutored a fifth grade special-ed student in reading, mathematics, grammar, and vocabulary---despite his difficulties, with the method of repetition and basics established, he was enabled to advance within a short time. I have studied for special educational methods/ abilities of this grade level. In addition, I am presently tutoring a fifth-grader in history, grammar, and, near in the future, art. I love to teach children of various backgrounds, and search for a help to fit their very special, individual needs.

Writing

I have a history of writing. As a sophomore and junior in high school, I wrote and illustrated for a local newspaper. As a senior, I began tutoring peer-age and younger in simple essay-writing. As an Honors graduate in Elementary Education, I have 10 years of experience in writing, and have written and published curriculum for junior/high school students.
