University of Vermont (BS Marketing)
As a child schoolwork was rarely difficult, and I took part in gifted programs, but I still to this day remember moving from Tennessee to Vermont and feeling like my classes were significantly more challenging, and then moving to Maryland only a year later, and suddenly feeling like I was far ahead of my classmates. Even though I was young at the time this left a large and lasting impression on me. It showed me that the way education and teaching is handled can have a huge impact on the quality of a persons education. Education and success in schooling can make a major difference in a person's life and I am excited to be a part of helping any way that I can. Tutoring is an amazing way to stimulate, support, and foster the very best that a person can achieve.
In the 7th grade, in California, I was tested in several areas, and my aptitude test results put me at the 16th grade level. My IQ was also tested at 141. I attended a local community college full time instead and scored a 4.0 in four classes. While in college as an 8th grader I was part of a team that dissected a human cadaver, painted nude models, and wrote research papers on multiculturalism in music. As a high school senior I only took the SAT one time and I scored a 1430 cumulative, having a 720 in Verbal and a 710 in Math. Since high school I have worked in a variety of positions, including being a trainer, tutor, presenter, and consultant. I am only a few courses short of a BS in Marketing at the Universty of Vermont.

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.
As a young adult I was involved in the gifted program running concurrently with school. I spent several years on the Math club and my uncle is a Professor of Mathematics at UC Davis. I scored exceptionally well on the SAT for Math. Additionally, in recent years I have taught, presented, and tutored numerous subjects, but I particularly enjoy math, with Algebra my favorite. As an adult I enjoy math, but a strength I feel that I excel in is not just in knowledge, but also in being able to assess the best way to teach math depending on where someones skill level is. I feel an often overlooked area of education is in understanding what motivates a person and their perspective. There is no better feeling than helping someone gain confidence and understanding in something they feel overwhelmed by.
