My name is Amanda and I am a student at Virginia Tech studying Psychology. I love the subject and find it fascinating. As a tutor I would expect my students to be able to provide notes or books that they are using in the class so that I can help them using the materials they are expected to use. My style is more interactive than structured. I prefer to talk things out so that the student may have a better understanding. I like to ask a lot of questions because I believe that this can help the student realize what they do and do not know rather than just spitting facts at them and expecting them to know it all.
A bit about myself: I am a generally social person and enjoy having positive relationships and experiences with people. I grew up in a military family so I was raised to be persistent and not give up. This will most likely translate into my tutoring style because in the end the goal is that my students improve their knowledge and understand what is necessary for them to do well. Hi,

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.
