For as long as I can remember, I've loved the written word. Reading and writing are some of my favorite pastimes, and I have learned how important these skills are to have in everyday living. To read and write, is to know how to communicate, and fostering communication skills are vastly important in this fast-paced society.
Over the past five years, in between being a student myself, I have worked for the schools as a substitute, proof-read college papers, tutored kids in their homes, and even taught Sunday school. I love teaching kids (young and old!) and making a difference where I can.
I have a Bachelors in Film with a minor in English. When I was in school at Eastern Washington University, I was head of the writing tutor department in the office of Africana Studies. There I helped undergrads proofread and write their papers and structure their essays.
This past year while finishing up my BA, I worked part-time for a tutoring firm called Achieve Success. Of my six students, four of them increased their reading and grammar skills one to two letter grades.

Arri has had about 10 lessons with my 12, going on 18 year old son. He is a typical 7th grade boy who has little time for school work. He is bright and very well liked by everyone he meets, but his academic reports were really bad. Straight D student. Arri has made a huge impact on him. She is patient and kind and really seems to understand how to get through to him and make him understand why getting good grades are important. My son is focused and really works hard for the full 90 minute sessions they have every week. I highly recommend Arri if you have a middle school student who is too cool for school.
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.
