Holly worked at the after school program my 2 daughters went to. She helped my kindergartener learn how to read and continued working with her when she moved up to first grade. My other daughter was in 2nd grade when she started working with Holly. Every day after school, Holly would check her homework packet and reteach my daughter lessons she didnt understand in school. It was great because my daughter was always complaining her school teacher talked to fast for her to remember everything.
Holly babysat my 4 grandchildren on a regular basis for years until she left for college. She was able to keep them busy enough that they didn't fight. They played games, watched movies, and she accompanied them outside to ride their bikes or jump on the trampoline. My older grandson had homework packets he needed to complete every week and Holly would go over it with him, making sure he answered all the questions correctly. Also, I appreciated how flexible she was when I was running late.
Holly babysat my two kids weekly while I was at work meetings that ran into the evening time. She was great at entertaining my three year old son and also made sure my nine year old daughter did her homework. She would go over my daughter's books with her to make sure my daughter understood the stories and would pass her test to get reading points. Holly came early or stayed late when I needed her to.
To help establish positive report, I prefer my first interaction with the students I'm helping to be a light-hearted one where we just get to know each other. We have the entire school year to work on academic proficiency, so our first session should really be about my getting to know your child's personality, including their likes and dislikes as well as their current feelings surrounding school.
For two years, I worked at a learning center helping K-8th grade students on a daily basis with their reading, writing, math, and science homework. Once I began college, I volunteered at local middle schools helping young teens prepare to pass state exams for their transition to high school. For the last two years, as a volunteer counselor at an alternative high school, I helped young adults process their trauma through art books they created that chronicle their childhoods. The students were able to make up English credits through their work with me.
For one hour of tutoring, I charge $40 for one child. If there is 2+ children present during the session, I increase the price by $10 per child. If you request at least 2 hours of tutoring, then I will drop the starting price to $35/hour. For full-time positions, I charge $24/hour for a work week that has at least 30 hours.
Many of the kids I work with face language barriers or have diagnosed mental health differences such as learning disabilities, ADHD, or ASD. The majority of the students I’ve engaged with identify as a racial, ethnic, sexual, and/or gender minority, meaning I have the personal experience and professional consideration needed to successfully serve a wide range of students. My undergraduate career has thoroughly prepared me for this position with a wide range of course material, not just in psychology but also in fields like multicultural literature, queer studies, disability studies, and feminist studies, establishing a comprehensive framework for working with minority populations.
