About this tutor

My service stands out in that I do not limit myself to helping students with schoolwork. In addition to helping students improve their academic performance, I also teach students how to set goals, take more effective notes, build strong study skills, and become more independent learners by teaching them how to adapt to difficult situations. In my sessions, I also stress building other related skills, such as speed, accuracy, and memory. 

What I love about tutoring is seeing the students I work with become more confident in themselves. Although it's cliché, I love the "aha" moment of when students come to a clear understanding of a concept, and I love seeing the joy students have when they see their hard work paying off.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When working with a new student, I first talk to the parent to identify what the student seems to be struggling with and for me to explain how I plan to help the student over the course of our sessions. I think it is most important to make sure everyone is on the same page before any sessions start.

If the parent chooses to continue with me, I spend the first session learning more about the student and helping them become acquainted with how the sessions will work. This first session helps me see the student's interest and engagement, which helps me plan a personalized approach that will be the most beneficial to the individual. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated with my BA in English Literature from the University of North Texas, and I am currently working on obtaining my teacher certification for English 7-12. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in my high school's literary criticism UIL club. I taught my peers essay writing, how to break down texts for analysis, and various literary terms. I then moved on to organizing and teaching art classes at a local senior center and eventually started co-teaching 6th graders at my church. After that, I became an educational coach and taught reading to dyslexic kids aged 7-12. I am currently working as a supplemental instructor for my university's political science courses, which entails me leading study groups outside of classes.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a wide variety of students, most of whom were in elementary and middle school. However, I have also taught the elderly, and I currently work with college students.

I have experience working with various levels of dyslexia, autism, and anxiety, as well as working with undiagnosed, struggling students.
