Private tutor in Miami, FL
Winston Salem State University - BA, English
I received my bachelor's in English from Winston Salem State University, where I minored in Dramatic Arts. After graduated, I relocated to work with students in the inner city to improve attendance, behavior, and academic performance. In addition to mentoring and tutoring, I made an effort to be a role model for the young people I work with. I also spent a year teaching in an intensive reading classroom. Currently, I am a Team Leader at the high school and tutor freshmen in writing and other English skills. I've also worked with younger children in a variety of subject areas. I most enjoy tutoring students in reading, since strong reading skills are at the core of so many other areas of learning, within and outside the academic arena. I employ an unusual approach to tutoring. I prefer students to bring materials and, when possible, input from their teachers indicating the areas of greatest concern. While I don't find it most effective to answer the questions for the student, I do ask questions in order to guide the student and offer reinforcement to aid in understanding. Often, it is helpful (even necessary) to assist the student in working through the problem. When I'm not teaching or tutoring, I like to go hang out at the beach, engage in cultural activities, watch movies, read, and talk to my family. I feel privileged to be able to provide a high-quality education to others.
