I have been teaching for over 5 years, and I love being a helping hand to students of all ages. In my career as a middle school teacher, and now as an online tutor, I have had the opportunity to help kids understand and come to enjoy a variety of subjects including: art, technology, math, writing, social studies and Spanish. I am dedicated to assisting students in understanding concepts in fun and creative ways so that they are able to reach their full potential. I like to make sure that each session is stress-free for the student, that they leave having a clear concept of what was gone over and feel positive about the learning process and their progress!
I have a passion for teaching as well as learning new things. I am a history major at Rose State College and will graduate with my associates this May, then move on to a university for my bachelors degree. I understand that not every student learns in the same way. I'm always thinking about new ways to teach and to make learning fun! If you choose me as your tutor I will do my best to make you feel comfortable about the subject you're wanting to exceed in. I also love to help students with their writing assignments by giving excellent feedback in their writing endeavors. Good luck students!
I am a Johns Hopkins University Molecular & Cellular Biology and Anthropology double major and studied Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. I am versed in both the sciences and humanities, and have provided significant tutoring services in Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Biology, and standardized test preparation.
I graduated high school as the salutatorian of my class with a 4.00 GPA. I tutored students after school in Mathematics, English, Chemistry, and Biology. I also tutored in ACT prep, earning a 35 on the English and Mathematics sections and a 34 on the Science section. I was accepted to Johns Hopkins University on a full tuition scholarship.
I have maintained a 4.00 GPA as a Hopkins student, and continue to tutor undergraduates in science, math, and languages. I am very passionate about teaching and love working with students.
I'm a creative, versatile, and enthusiastic educator with 17 years’ experience teaching students of all ages in math, English, history, and other subjects.
I have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in English (University of Washington ’98, Southern Illinois University ’07) and have taught composition, creative writing, and media studies at the university level, both in person and online.
I've been tutoring since 1999, primarily in math and English, working with elementary school, middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate students.
For the last 3 years, I've also worked part-time at a local YMCA, where I mentor at-risk youth and teach creative writing to children and teens in the Y Writers program, which I founded in 2013.
As an author, screenwriter, musician, and former radio personality, I bring a wide variety of life experience to my teaching, and pride myself on figuring out fun, innovative ways to relate to students and help them learn.
My approach to education is a positive, nurturing one, building confidence in my students by treating them with respect and addressing the whole person, not just the academic side. If my students enjoy learning from me as much as I enjoy teaching them, I'll have achieved my goal.
My experience with tutoring as been a spontaneous one. Due to my high academic performance in Calculus, I was appointed the title "Calculus Scholar" and was made to assist others in this subject area as well as many other related Mathematics subject areas. Outside of the professional setting, I am usually the go-to person when it came to understanding Biology and Chemistry. In Chemistry and Biology labs, I was usually the one to achieve results first and then assist others with their tasks.
