I have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Middle Tennessee State University, as well as minors in Political Science and Philosophy. These programs helped shape my belief that the key to academic success is not in memorization, but in process development. My goal is to help students learn how to problem solve on test day rather than simply regurgitate information. When a student learns how to develop context around his or her knowledge, that student is better prepared for class, for research, for writing, and for exams.
While many students panic at the prospect of taking standardized tests like the ACT or GRE, I have learned that my methods lead to more confident students, less stressful test days, and - most importantly - higher scores. I have experience tutoring political science, especially writing and research. I also tutor Psychology, English, Writing, and Middle School Math. I can help students write in MLA and APA format, as both will likely be used in college. Most importantly, I can help students gain confidence in their academic work. No one likes to study when they feel overwhelmed by the fear of failure, so I make morale a top concern. Once a student realizes he or she has the tools needed to succeed, school becomes fun again. After that, the rest is easy.
