ExperienceI work as a private tutor for a client who has been diagnosed with ADD. I began tutoring my client when she was in 4th grade and have been consistently working with her over the last 5 years; she is now a freshman. I provide homework help in all subjects and develop innovative study skills and time management techniques that cater to her specific needs. I am CBEST certified and earned a 4 on the AP English Lit test. I have taken classes on working with various levels of literacy, classes that discuss teaching theories, and classes on Young Adult Language Arts, as well as classes that focus on grammar, punctuation, and proper college level essays. I have experience working as a camp councilor where I taught children from ages 7-12 classes ranging from science to comics and currently work in child care at the YMCA where I implement learning and recreational activities.
HobbiesI am passionate about sharing knowledge and experiences with others. It is a calling for me to instill a love of learning in students and equip them to go forth and change the world. I love analyzing works of literature through discussions and written assignments. I strongly believe that everyone can fall in love with learning, most assuredly through reading and writing, and that even the most insecure student possesses amazing gifts to cultivate and offer society. I love to travel and broaden my horizons by learning about other cultures. I am very patient, kind, and easy going and love working with kids of all ages.
