Award-Winning Writing Tutors in Garland, TX
Elizabeth "...I tutor elementary math, reading and writing, special education, study skills, and organization skills. My favorite subject to tutor is reading because the ability to read allows individuals to learn and have many new experiences through stories they read. I believe that every individual can learn and it is the educator's responsibility to find the appropriate method for every student. Learning should be relevant to real life and connected to a student's prior knowledge..."

Sherna "... I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA), and maintain a private Voice and Piano studio.

I was born in Arkansas, but moved to Texas as quickly as I could, where I currently work as a soloist, section leader, Music Director, Stage Director, Choral Director, and producer of a recital series entitled “My Soul Music”. I enjoy an extensive performance career which requires that I sing opera, musical theater, gospel, r&b, blues, and jazz. I also have a band called Sherna Armstrong Band..."

Joseph "...How these particles move and interact with the environment is of particular interest to me. I believe that tutoring, whatever the subject, should be an interactive process. I have sat, nay, lazed through too many mundane, monotonous lectures to know that teaching someone requires much more than merely reading off a PowerPoint presentation that contains too many words. It requires an equal amount of talking and listening, teaching and being taught (yes, you read that correctly), succeeding and failing..."

Bethany "...I have experience in teaching language arts and math in preparation for the state tests as well as in summer school. Because of my instructional techniques and subject area knowledge, my students were able to increase their comprehension and skills to pass their required tests. In addition to skills in math and science, my undergraduate degree included a majority of upper level classes in history and literature. I am confident in my abilities to work with students needing assistance in writing, reading, and history. Having a great passion for education, I offer high enthusiasm and motivation in tutoring sessions..."

Meredith "... While at SMU I completed a summer session in the South-of-France and a semester in Paris. In law school, I spent a summer studying International and Comparative Law at Trinity University in Dublin, Ireland. Perhaps the most rewarding experience of all was being able to spend my final semester of law school as an exchange student at the University of Hong Kong, China. The chance to learn and study with students and faculty of diverse nationalities and cultures has been both enlightening and exciting..."

Rohini "...Because I grew up with a brother who has a significant learning disability, teaching is something that I've come to value on a personal level. Throughout my brother's school years, I assisted him with assignments as well as extra-curricular activities so that he could gain enrichment to the best of his ability. Therefore, I've developed patience and an understanding of the uniqueness of various learning styles. I've had the privilege of gaining teaching experience in a wide variety of subjects, and it would be a joy for me to help students achieve success in the biological and physical sciences, algebra, essay writing, and english..."
