About Olivia

I am a 20-year-old junior at the Honors College at the University of Utah. I am double majoring in Ethnic Studies and Peace and Conflict Studies. When it comes to elementary study skills tutoring, I tutored and helped with homework once a week after school at the Boys and Girls Club throughout high school. I also work at the Family Support Center and work with kids of all backgrounds, ages, and skill levels almost every day. I naturally connect with kids and love helping them learn.
As far as ACT prep, I myself scored high on the ACT and I am very familiar with the test, how it works, and what the creators are looking for. I have helped many people close to me improve their scores the second time around. I am a very patient and understanding teacher, and I love sharing my learning style with others while learning about theirs.
As far as my personal sewing background goes, I started sewing lessons when I was in sixth grade and continued through my senior year of high school. I have competed in multiple competitions and my pieces have constantly drawn attention from the audience and judges because I have a trendy and unique style and love to incorporate it into my pieces and foster it in others. As I grew older I became great friends with my teacher and began to help her teach her younger students, both in her regular weekly classes and in her once-a-year one week intensive workshops. These students ranged from ages five to fifteen and their experience levels ranged from complete beginner to high intermediate. For 6 months in 2016, I worked as a seamstress in a high-end prom store, repairing and altering beading and zippers on expensive dresses. My interests when it comes to sewing are vast.

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 personally got a good ACT score, and English was my best subject. I have always had a good grasp of test taking strategies and study skills. I have tutored multiple people closer me and helped them to greatly improve their scores on the ACT, especially in English.

Sewing

I have been sewing for eight years, since I was in the sixth grade. I have participated in multiple competitions and worked as a seamstress at a prom dress store. I have had experience tutoring beginning and intermediate sewers in weekly classes and in intensive workshops.

Study Skills

I have a long history of working with children. Throughout high school, I volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club as a homework helper. For the past while, I have worked at the Family Support Center, sometimes helping kids with their homework. I connect very naturally with kids, making the learning process easier for them. Personally, I am a very good test-taker with lots of helpful strategies and study skills to share.
