EducationI am currently a junior Interior Design student at Florida State University with a 3.0+ GPA. I will be graduating in the summer of 2011.
I graduated high school in 2004 from Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville, FL. I majored in English and Creative Writing and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. I took all honors and AP courses.
ExperienceI have extensive experience tutoring all ages on a variety of subjects. I have tutored my niece and nephew since they were in elementary school, and they are currently ages 12 and 17. I have also tutored children of family friends from ages 5+, as well as adults of all ages, including peers.
My tutoring style is very interactive, patient and enthusiastic.
I excel in English and Creative Writing. I won first place in poetry for the Much Ado About Books competition in Jacksonville, FL. I also served on the staff for Elan, a literary magazine, and as Arts and Entertainment editor for The Improviser, my high school newspaper.
Also, I have a very strong background in Social Sciences/ Arts/ History/ Liberal Arts.
Furthermore, as an Interior Design major I am very adept at teaching Organization skills, Study Skills and Computer Skills. These are all key components of being a succesful Interior Design student and ones I have come to know inside and out.
MY TEST SCORES -
SATs - 1300 (taken prior to the SAT II)
ACTs - 30
AP Language - 4 (out of 5)
AP Literature - 5 (out of 5)
I want to be a tutor because I love working with children and adults of all ages. I enjoy helping others learn and love to see the progress they make. I have a lot of experience interacting and communicating with children. I tend to be very succesful at helping people grasp concepts or material that they once struggled with by relaying the information to them in a new or different way, or by putting it in terms they can more easily relate to.
