I am a graduate of Kennesaw State University. I have a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education grades Pre-K through 5 and a co-teaching certification. As part of my coursework to earn my degree, I have had 40 hours of formal tutoring which was evaluated by university professors. During my final student teaching practicum, I worked extensively with students from my class to improve or extend skills across all subject areas. This included everything from helping struggling readers improve and succeed to creating new math challenges to extend learning for gifted students. I enjoy the entire learning process, so I am able to tutor all subject areas, but I especially love helping students with English and Language Arts. Reading and writing skills are the foundation for effective communication, which is an essential skill in today’s world, so I love being able to give children that tool for success. As a tutor, I believe my role is not to give students every answer, but to give them the skills and strategies necessary to discover answers on their own. By constructing their own knowledge, students will learn more effectively which will translate tutoring success into classroom success.
