I have 7 years experience with Algebra 1 students, both common core and earlier methods. Knowing that many students lack the tools to be able to identify what approach or formula to use, I focus on making sure student understands concepts AND how they relate to different problems, helping them know how to approach new problems. Each textbook teaches differently, so I like to look over their textbook in the first meeting so I can best help them.


Algebra 2

Even if you are not good at math, I can help you with your Algebra 2 class. We can work together to figure out what is missing, and step by step go forward. I can help with homework and prepare for tests.


Writing

I have excelled at college-level writing and am truly eager to help students with a piece of writing as well as improving the overall quality of their writing. Last month, I was asked to be an ongoing writer for my local community college newspaper. My last English professor repeatedly expressed how much I helped the other students in our class.

I'm good at helping students by personalizing study techniques to their strengths and weaknesses. Together, we will create study pages for each chapter or section, practice repetition techniques, and make sure the student understands all the details of any system.

Proofreading

Over the last few years, I have proofread many people's papers, essays and even novels. One published author used my proofreading skills and one who is yet to be published. I can proofread for technical errors, and check for MLA mistakes. I excel at offering advice on word choice as well.


Study Skills

I completed a week-long 40-hour Study Skills intensive at Santa Barbara City College. I have proficiency from that seminar and also skills I have used with 5-12 grade and college students. I can show students how to study material from a textbook, breaking it down into tasks. I can teach how to take notes, how to study from notes, writing and rewriting as necessary. I can teach students how to make a note-page of important information to study from. I can teach how to listen and take notes from aural media. I can help students tailor their approach to time management, choosing one of several different ways to organize time depending on their learning style, making the effort and time most efficient for them.


Homeschool

I have home educated my four children for fifteen years successfully. I taught them each to read, write and perform arithmetic problems. I taught them history, literature, science and basic art. I can help with elementary, middle and high school. I can help determine a courseload and to help make sure high school classes are up to college standards and records are kept. I can help make transcripts and help plan for transcripts. My oldest successfully earned a 100% scholarship to a private university and got a 31 on the ACT, and has greater than a 3.5. GPA after her sophomore year. My second is thriving in theater and undergraduate studies. My third child successfully shifted into the local public high school as a freshman without any deficits. I still home educate my fourth child.
