"AP Economics Teacher, Reader, Tutor"
I am a retired educator with experience teaching at various levels from primary school through college. My major focus for most of my career was teaching secondary social sciences with a focus on economics. In addition, I have prepared and taught more than twenty different specific subjects ranging from World Geography and Cultures to Advanced Placement Microeconomics, AP Macroeconomics, and AP Psychology.
Since my retirement I have successfully tutored numerous students, especially in A... ... More
Alyssa was right on target from the first session. She had a great "report" for us shortly thereafter with details of what our daughter did well and struggled with which confirmed what her teacher has shared with us as well. This made us feel more confident that Alyssa was the right tutor and that she would "get right to" what mattered to help us improve. Very anxious for the next sessions.

"Loved tutoring since I started doing it in 8th Grade"
I started tutoring first graders when I was in 8th grade. During high school I was always the first one to volunteer when something needed explaining by a student. In Princeton I tutored friends in Spanish. As a professional I offered numerous seminars to adults.
I love teaching what I know and love. As a student myself, I always preferred teachers who did not assume you know certain things. I always start from scratch and advance accordingly depending on each student's knowledge. I li... ... More

"History, Geography, Politics, English"
I completed my undergraduate teaching program at Randolph Macon College and logged roughly 100 hours of classroom field work in Hanover County, with the areas of focus being Civics and World History. Prior to that, I had two years of experience as a youth tutor for a program aimed towards misguided youth (students who were suspended/expelled or had some sort of legal issues interfering with their education). While tutoring was a large part of the program, mentoring and teaching life skills ... ... More
"ESL Tutor -- several years' experience"
I've spent a lot of time tutoring students, likely for as long as I've been a student. I really took to filling this role in university especially, where I mentored and tutored students through ODUâ€™s Conversation Partners and Global Monarchs programs.

"English student who loves reading, writing and helping"
In 2015, I tutored young children at Americorps and loved it. I am proficient in textual analysis, essays composition, and reading comprehension. Reading and writing has been a part of me as much as helping people. I am also skilled at poetry, performance arts, biology, and social studies.
I Performed better than over 90% of students on the Reading portion of my SATS. I'm an English major currently, so I am constantly improving my skills as a writer, and learning valuable research skills whi... ... More

Having worked as a Corporate Senior Financial Analyst, I s... ... More
"Middle School Math Tutor for Different Learning Styles"
I have experience working as a math resource teacher in northern VA. I started the program in a small, parochial school and worked with students in grades 2-8. I use methods like "touch math" to help students with memory issues learn their facts and build confidence. I acted as the liason between parents and teachers, in addition to representing parents at IEP meetings which can be very overwhelming and intimidating to parents. With the money shortage in education, it is very difficult to con... ... More
