If by Rudyard Kipling is my favorite poem. I don't eat cheese. I love screenwriting and Twizzlers King Size packs. But we'll get to that later.
I earned my Bachelors of Arts degree from Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. While I am not teacher, I have much experience as a tutor, previously working on a solely volunteer basis via faith-based organizations in my hometown of Memphis, TN, as well as through the Shelby County School system.
I've always been a naturally successful academic student but approaching high school, I learned that to be wholly successful, it takes a lot more than natural smarts. I worked hard at teaching myself various effective studying methods as well as time management skills so that I could succeed in my own academic career and be adequately prepared for furthering my education. Thus, I am now able to pass on these knowledge and skills to the students I work with and help them accurately prepare for their future.
I highly believe that every student is different and very rarely take the same approach to two students, as they're rarely alike. Their interests, ideas, ways of thinking and operational abilities all vary and I always make sure to assess what's best for the student first. I have to get to know them and introduce them to strategies best suited for their learning, which in turn changes their work from a chore into something they look forward to and fully understand. My job as their tutor is to work with them to improve their current abilities and provide each student with all tools necessary to be able to move forward, continuing their success, independently. I'm not here to feed them but rather to show them how to feed themselves.
I look forward to working with you/your child!
