About Hollie

I have 3 years of experience tutoring English Language Learners, and 2 years instructing children. I have a minor in Spanish and have participated in a study abroad program. I am a former business professional looking to enter the Education field. I am currently enrolled in the Master's program offered by the University of Memphis. I have great relationship building experience and love to learn new things. My interests include volunteering, drawing, reading and writing, painting and visiting museums. I believe that learning is achieved through trial and error, and that students should be pushed to think critically.

My availability includes daytime hours from 8:00 am to 2:30 p.m. and after 3:30 p.m. most days except for Wednesdays. I am willing to meet in a public place like a library or coffee shop for the first session and will do home sessions, but only after an initial interview and home visit.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently attending the Teacher Education Program at the University of Memphis. I have just completed my Praxis II exam for ESL certification for K-12. I have taken and successfully passed the required elementary education courses required for teaching. I will have earned a Master's in Education with ESL certification by May of 2014.

Writing

BA in English with concentration in Professional Writing. I have one published article, "Southerners have the Gift of Gab," in the Fayette County Review, November 2003 edition. I have submitted writing samples to Hallmark for consideration. I also have 3 years of experience tutoring peers in English.
