About

I am an engaging, fun, and intuitive tutor. This means that I am able to adapt my teaching style to meet the needs of my students and I do my very best to make learning a joyful experience. Also, I am unusually able to identify my students' learning/thinking strength and help them use it to their advantage.

I have a very broad range of experience from pre-K, where I have helped children get comfortabe with exerting mental energy in new ways, through college undergrad level, where, depending on the subject matter, I have been successful as a kind of study coach, helping students organize and internalize information in a wide variety of subjects.

In the Language Arts area my skills include teaching young children to read and helping all students through Highschool level with reading comprehension--from "Curious George" through Shakespeare. My skills as a writing coach draw on teaching students to organize information and express their thoughts creatively.

I am also very proud to help students make friends with MATH. Having struggled with math as a child, I have learned how to learn math and am quite skilled at allaying math anxiety. I am familiar with several different math curricula including, but not limited to Eureka Math, Saxon Math, Math-u-see, McGraw-Hill, Holt, and Marshall Cavedish.

Other areas of tutoring I have worked in include ESL, Highschool Biology, Spanish, GED test prep, and teacher certification test prep.

Finally, I have worked with a handful of neurodiverse students. Though I am not certified in this area, being fairly empathetic and intuitive I am pleased to say that I witnessed each of them gain success in the sublects we worked on together.

I find tutoring to be very rewarding. It is an energizing experience for me to get to know my students, identify their strengths and gifts and use them to develope their own learning style. Being an encouraging influence and helping each of my students, regaradless of age, gain self-confidence gives me joy.

I love that Sally will come to my house and work with the kids—one less appointment for me to drive to. And I appreciate her willingness to tutor a variety of subjects and ages. Totally worth it!

To Whom it May Concern:
If you are looking for a highly effective, creative and knowledgeable tutor or teacher for your child, I
highly recommend Sally Seekins. Mrs. Seekins has been tutoring my 13 year old son. As you can
imagine, doing extra Algebra prep over the summer was not on his fun things to do list. Mrs.
Seekins has made it an enjoyable and fun experience for him. He is doing classes 3 times a week and
he has willingly, without hesitation, been ready for class each day.
There are 3 main reasons I believe Mrs. Seekins has successfully been able to instruct with my son;
1.
2.
3.
her concrete understanding of the materials,
ability to build a strong rapport with my son
her willingness to take time to get to know his learning style.
I was able to see all of this in action on numerous oCcasions. Clearly she has a mastery
understanding of the materials and is able to teach in a way that students retain knowledge.
Because of the Pandemic, all of his classes have been virtual, but unlike his other teachers, Mrs.
Seekins has never met him in-person. Even with this obstacle, she has built a strong relationship
with him through the use of Zoom. They truly have a great relationship because she is attentive,
relatable and fun.
My experience with Mrs. Seekins has been very positive and I have no hesitation in highly
recommending her to you. She will be an attentive, effective, knowledgably tutor that will work to
develop a program that meets your childs needs. Feel free to contact me directly with any
questions.
Best Regards,
Anjali Devaraj Tierne
