Tutor Personal Information

Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Because of my education, experience, and love of learning & teaching, you can rest assured that I will give individualized instruction to your child. It's important to nourish one's strengths while helping him/her become more confident in his/her more difficult areas of study. Therefore, I plan the tutoring around your childs strengths & weaknesses and personal situation (i.e. goals of the tutoring, school assignments for the next week, upcoming ACT test, etc). I can also work with you to make an organized homework/assignment plan that helps you succeed. I can provide some of my own teaching materials, or I can work with your schools homework or a curriculum of your choice.

Awards I received my Bachelors (and graduated Summa Cum Laude) from University of Louisiana at Lafayette in May 2005. I had a double major in English and Spanish, with a minor in History. I received my Master's in English from LSU in Dec. '08, and I have plus 30 graduate hours. I taught at LSU until August 2011, and I now teach at River Parishes Community College. I have taught Freshman Composition, Argumentative Writing, Intro to Drama, British Literature, Shakespeare, and Women's Literature. I also continue to work with LSU and 100 Black Men, teaching for their ACT Preparatory Academy.

In Lafayette and Baton Rouge, I have babysat, worked as a preschool teacher, worked at a local Mothers Day Out program, tutored a high school student in Spanish, worked as a tutor in the UL English Department Writing Center, tutored student-atheletes at LSU, led ACT Prep workshops for a College of Arts & Sciences program for high school students, babysat for professors and colleagues children, and taught undergraduate composition and literature courses at LSU. That means I am happy working with individuals or groups, any age levels, and in many subjects.
