Bio

Hello Student,

I was hired as an Academic Tutor to help first-generation college students stay enrolled in college and earn a two-year degree.

Hello Student,

My interest in providing academic support to students began while studying for my Associate Degree in Arts at Houston Community College in the fall of 2003. I was hired as an Academic Tutor to help first-generation college students stay enrolled in college and earn a two-year degree. Several of the students that I worked with graduated with their two-year degree, and went on to earn their bachelor's degree. Working with first generation college students remains one of the most memorable and awesome experiences of my life. I have obtained more than 17 years of experience in the field of education providing academic support to both undergraduate and graduate students, since my first academic job role.

On the Wyzant platform, I provide assistance to the following students:

1) Currently Enrolled UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS working on their Associate in Art or Associate in Science, who need help with Communication/Essay Writing Coursework such as (English 1301 and English 1302) and all Psychology 1000-2000 level Course Work such as (Intro to Psychology, General Psychology, Child Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, and Social Psychology, etc.).

2) ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNERS (ESLL), who are CURRENTLY ENROLLED at a Junior College seeking academic support toward completion of essay writing (ENG 1301 & ENG 1302).

3) CURRENTLY ENROLLED GRADUATED STUDENTS seeking academic support with psychology coursework.

My Tutor/Teaching Styles:

1) DEMONSTRATIVE: The teacher/tutor imparts information to the students via lectures, assigned readings, audio/visual presentations, demonstrations, role playing, and other means. Students gain information primarily by listening, taking notes, doing role plays, and practicing what they are told to do. The only feedback the teacher looks for is: Do you understand the instructions?

2) DISCUSSING: The teacher/tutor promotes learning through interaction. In this style, practiced by Socrates, the teacher encourages critical thinking and lively discussion by a

Very professional tutor

From the first lesson with her, I was able to find that she's very professional and thorough in details. I already got lots of help. Strongly recommend her! And she's very responsive, too.

Amazing Tutor

Ms. Devril W. is the perfect tutor, the one we dream about. She has many different skills to help me improving, such as practice academic listening and reading online. Also she recommended activities to enhance my vocabulary and my writing. The most important thing she has been doing during our time together is supporting and encouraging me to focus on my goals and never give up. I am feeling lucky to have your lessons. Thank you!!!

Very Efficient, Patient, Flexible, Honest, Positive

My first tutoring session with Ms. Devril overall was a great experience. I plan on continuing to work with her throughout my graduate program. She and I will work closely together to improve my writing skills. I was very impressed with the improvements we made within our first session on a rough draft copy of my paper. One of the reasons I feel that my first session with Ms. Devril was a success, she was able to quickly identify my level of writing skills and work at a pace that was comfortable for me. She also recognized my strengths and areas for improvement. She provided honest feedback and training material that will help to improve my writing. What was also impressive is her wisdom and ability to work with students of any education level, profession, or program to meet their needs. She is easy to reach, flexible, and always willing to extend help. She also has very good timing when it comes to followup and feedback. I feel that I can count on her as my tutor, even if I need her help at the last minute. I feel that by working with Ms. Devril, my writing skills will improve drastically.
