Whitney did an excellent job helping me understand what I didn't get. She made it easier for me to understand.
Was great with my son (Jr in high school) not only with specific subjects but helping him learn how to manage his time and organize. Thank you Whitney!
Whitney was a perfect fit for my daughter. Easy to work with in scheduling. Very patient, explained things well. I would highly recommend Whitney.
Whitney was very helpful in helping my son solve the misunderstanding he has experienced with his Algebra 2. Since working with her, his overall grade has improved 6 points and is now a "B". He also passed his EOI math test with a high score. We plan to continue our tutor relationship with Whitney.
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.

I am studying to become a Speech Pathologist, and part of my scope of practice will include working with kids with Autism. I will be a senior in my field in the fall, and I have learned about Autism in several of my classes through the OU Health Sciences Center. We learned about some good methods to use when working with kids with Autism, including use of transitions, giving time for them to process their expressive language, and working with them in social situations that may be difficult for them.
In my studies, I have researched Autism with a professor who specializes in helping children with Autism, and I have learned much from her on how to modify teaching to fit the needs of the child on a practical level. She studies eye-gaze patterns with children with Autism as her research, and she works with children with Autism in the language preschool at the College of Allied Health. In the fall, I will work with a family with a child with Autism to work on his social language. My work will include exposing him to social situations and teaching him to process and use expressive language on a daily basis.
I am a junior at the University of Oklahoma, and my major is Communication Sciences and Disorders. I have a 4.0 and I maintained all A's throughout a private college prep high school. In order to maintain these standards, I have had to learn to study through organizing my notes, following directions carefully, and learning different methods of studying, including making schedules, picking important information, and studying every day. My professional training includes class time in my major that has focused on study skills as well as past tutoring experience in which I have trained students on how to study.
