I am currently a student studying English Education at Taylor University after graduating from Grapevine Faith Christian School in May 2015. In high school, I took a variety of AP, Honors, and Dual Credit classes. When I took the ACT, I received a perfect score on the English portion and scored very highly on the writing, reading, and science sections as well. Because I took the test so recently, I am very familiar with its format and can help students develop strategies to answer questions quickly and correctly. At Taylor, I am a member of the Honors program and will be enrolled in both English and education classes each semester.
I have always had a love for all aspects of English--grammar, literature, writing, etc.--and truly have a passion for instilling that love in other students. As a college freshman, I have already completed a semester of classroom hours in local schools and am currently completing my second semester of teacher observation. These field experiences have reinforced my desire to teach and my love for helping students achieve their academic goals. In addition, I have gained real-world, hands-on experiences tutoring, teaching lessons, and performing other classroom duties with individual students, small groups, and entire classrooms. As a future teacher, one of my goals is to make sure that each student realizes how valuable he or she is and recognizes his or her potential to learn. I truly believe that every student is capable of reaching his or her personal academic goals, and while those goals can and will look different for each student, I am prepared to tailor my tutoring style to each individual's strengths and weaknesses.
