ASVAB

I have helped many young adults achieve success on the ASVAB. This is important to me because of my respect and admiration of people who serve in the Armed Forces and the importance of what they do. It is very important for one to get into the right program, within their choice or branch of the military so they can best utilize their skills and abilities. I am very thorough in breaking down information, especially mathematics and explaining it in ways that will help refresh your memory. Also, I can teach and help with new concepts if necessary. Although the ASVAB has mathematics that range from arithmetic to Algebra 1, the questions can be challenging because of their word problem format. I will help you master these types of problems as well as help you in the other sections that you want to study for.

I hold an advanced professional certification in elementary education up to grade 8. I have been tutoring this age group for over 20 years and have been very successful. I also was the executive director of the SES Program for a year and we worked with students in this age range and grade level. Our program raised student scores by over 90%. I am patient and able to work with students to understand concepts. I have multiple ways of explaining things that help students to grasp the skills and knowledge that they need to be more successful in their subjects.

I am a Maryland certified teacher who successfully passed both Praxis 1 and 2 on the first try. I can help you develop better study skills and strategies to help you be successful, too. I will tutor you in all parts of the Praxis that you need help. I can also help coach you through and show you some useful techniques to help you overcome test anxiety.


Nutrition

I am qualified to tutor in nutrition, because I have a degree in biology with several courses in health/nutrition. I also practice healthy eating/living and am constantly researching ways to incorporate better nutrition into my life. I was also with Weight Watcher's years ago and learned a lot about food values and nutrition by becoming a member and successfully losing weight through their program.
