ExperienceMy philosophy as a tutor is very simple: each student is capable of doing well and learning, and there are many ways to teach students how to learn the same information. I strive to find the best way to work with each student on their skills, and try to get through to each one individually by learning about their personal interests and connecting the information to things they enjoy.One of the great moments for me as a teacher is the moment when a student finally "gets it," so to speak, especially when they didn't believe they would. I have enjoyed witnessing that moment for the past 19 years during my work with students of a wide range of ages, levels, and topics.I am a graduate of Howard Payne University, where I earned my bachelor's degree, and hold a master's degree from Tarleton State University. I am capable of teaching a wide range of English topics, from grammar and mechanics to PSAT, SAT, and ACT English and writing prep.In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family, watching movies, and spending time in the great outdoors.
