I began tutoring as a volunteer through a non-profit organization. When I moved to Seattle, I was offered a job as a tutor in writing and English at a college and I loved it! I primarily worked with international students and through the process adapted my methods to better facilitate their learning style.

Throughout my service I expanded the subjects in which I assist students in advancing in a particular subject, which now includes: reading, writing, English, Algebra I, Geometry, and mathematics.

I worked with a student in Seattle who was about to graduate with her Associate's degree and was in the process of applying to different schools to continue on with her Bachelor's degree. We worked together every day for two months on her personal essays in hopes of getting into a competitive school. When she finally felt confident with her essay, she submitted it. Six weeks later, she came in to share the news she had been accepted into first choice school.

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.
