Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Writing tutors in McKinney, TX
"I experienced success as a teacher because I understood the value of the one-on-one communication as an essential complement to the traditional lecture-based dialogue. Additionally, my involvement in the lives of students extended to after-school volunteer programs such as Green Bay's Families and Schools Together (FAST program) and my work as an interscholastic football, basketball, softball, and baseball official / referee / umpire. My graduation with honors from an excellent private school gave me the content-based foundation to know my stuff, and the education training helped me convey that in a way students can relate. I ...

"Seeing the light bulb turn on in their eyes, always makes me feel excited and happy that they have fully grasped a concept. Whether it's working with my peers at TCU who are also pursuing a Business or Spanish degree, or working with someone younger, that look in someone's eyes is ageless. The subjects I tutor range from all elementary subjects to ACT prep, to AP prep, to college essays. I specialize in liberal arts topics including Spanish, reading, writing, history and math up until the high school level. At a tutoring session I always try to keep the student entertained and make sure they feel comfortable, so they're in an environment ...

"Is your student stressing about any of these events looming just around the corner? Students that need help should have the appropriate resources, so that's why I'm here to offer my services in the written language. I feel it's my duty to pass on what I've learned throughout my high school and college experiences. I'm well-versed writing personal essays, taking admissions tests, critically analyzing literature, and everything in between. Now, these can be very daunting tasks for some students - but that doesn't have to be the case! Maybe your student isn't quite at that college preparation stage." ...

"Why? What’s going on? What’s our problem and how can we solve it together? They need to know you’ll care before they’ll answer. Many times the reason for an outburst in class or confusion about an assignment is an underlying need for help or an issue. This may be the minor need of extra practice on two digit multiplying, or the “why” of fractions. As a teacher, wife, sister, friend, aunt, daughter, and student, I have learned that you need to back up and figure out the cause of the problem."

"I tutor many subjects, but English and writing are my favorite. Though I fought against it for many years, I am a natural teacher and have worked with a variety of students, from non-native English speakers to elementary students struggling with homework and adult students getting back into the swing of college. I have been tutoring professionally for eight years, and I've loved every minute of it! I can't wait to meet you and help you achieve your goals."

" While I do not have plans to return to school as a student immediately, I began to look into other venues where I could be involved in academics and help others succeed. The solution I found was to look into tutoring other students and that is how I found Varsity Tutors. My love of learning and education was instilled at a young age because both of my parents are teachers, my dad teaches Geology and my mom teaches 3rd grade. Education has always been a priority for me, and I love making ordinary, everyday events into creative learning opportunities." ...

" I have always been studious, and I have always wanted to learn about a wide variety of subjects. I have taken every type of class imaginable because I never could decide what subject I loved more. That's why it took me so long to decide on a major! In all my difficult classes where teacher instruction has fallen short, I've just taught the material to myself from the text. I love problem-solving and figuring out complex theories and ideas."

" AmeriCorps is a lot like the Peace Corps, only volunteers stay in the US and work for a variety of independent charities and organizations. I worked for The University of Chicago Center for Urban School Improvement – an initiative of the university to bolster education in some of the city’s lowest achieving schools. During the school day I served as a Literacy Tutor for students in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. I also provided homework help and math and literacy tutoring for K-8 students in an after-school program."

"As a certified teacher, I have had the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of enlightening professional development seminars, such as Garland Writes!, which focused on best practices in teaching writing, the UTD AP English Institute, and the St. Mark’s Institute. However, the years of experience and certificates do not truly define my tutoring experience. The most important aspect of tutoring is the relationship between student and teacher, which I believe should be built on sincerity and respect."

"From a young age I have tutored friends and family members in a variety of subjects at many different grade levels. Although I have consistently helped others throughout the learning process, I too have been on the other side of the tutoring spectrum. I have been very blessed in having influential people in my life that have helped me throughout my own educational experiences. Because of this, I realize the impact and value one-on-one teaching can have in education."
