I graduated from Union University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature and Philosophy. I began tutoring in high school when I led an ACT prep class for a group of homeschooled students. I discovered that I loved helping people grasp new concepts and find creative ways of approaching material they may have found challenging. In college, I volunteered as a Literature and English tutor in the campus tutoring center for two years. My main responsibility was reading and critiquing other students' papers. I gave feedback about content, structure, and grammar. I loved helping people find their voice and discover what they were excited to write about - I found that often students were intimidated by writing, but when I asked questions and listened, they quickly realized they had something they wanted to say and gained confidence in their writing. I gained more tutoring experience after college working for ScorePlus Academics for over a year and a half. I worked with all ages, but particularly high school students studying for college admissions tests. I taught group classes and tutored individuals for the ACT, PSAT, SAT, and GRE. My primary focus was on the ACT - I taught every section of the test, and by the time I left ScorePlus I knew the ACT backward and forward. I enjoyed helping students grasp the content, but the most fun part of tutoring was finding tips and creative approaches to the test that fit the individual student I was working with. I loved watching students gradually discover that they could succeed at the material we were covering. As people gained confidence, their frustration disappeared and they were able to use the tools they already had to learn material and take the test strategically. I would love to help you reach your academic goals!
