I am so excited to have the opportunity to tutor learners of all ages. I believe that all students can learn when given the appropriate support and guidance. A teacher or tutor's primary goal should be to teach problem solving and critical thinking so the student can move on to independent work.
I am certified in K-3, K-6, Family and Consumer Science, and Engineering and Technology. I have my ESOL and Reading endorsements. I am an experienced teacher and tutor. I am focused on the elementary subjects but will consider some middle school opportunities. I am also open to assisting high school students and adult learners prepare for exams (SAT, Teacher certifications, GRE). I will also consider group sessions up to 3 students to assist with homework and vitural schooling.
I have a BA in Psychology/Sociology, MEd Early Childhood Special Education, and I hold a Doctorate in Education, Instructional Technology from Nova Southeastern University.
I served 21 years in the US Army Reserves, retiring as a MAJOR in 2010. During that time, I managed and taught two online courses for over 200 Soldiers globally on an annual basis.
I have lived in Florida for 3 years, coming from Ft Leonard Wood MO in 2017. I taught second and third grade at a local charter school. I am familiar with Florida State Standards, SAT 10, county portfolios, and the 3rd grade ELA/Math FSA. I was a co-teacher for 4th grade and was the lead teacher during virtual online learning due to COVID-19. I am currently a private tutor focusing on elementary subjects.
I have two daughters. The oldest is attending the University of Kansas for Music Therapy. My youngest is attending USF St Petersburg for Information Management. I am an accomplished violinist and enjoying playing local ensembles. Living in Florida is amazing and I am at the beach, festival or park as much as possible.
Dr. C. began studying the Violin & Piano at age 2 - he was privileged to begin his Violin studies after his 'initial' Study Session with Dr. Suzuki himself at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Suzuki happened to be in Dallas as a guest Professor of Violin in December of 1964. After the Study Session with Dr. Suzuki, he 'highly suggested' to Mrs. C.," that young Rand begin Private Violin Instruction immediately!!". Thus began Maestro C.'s 19 year Violin & Piano training under the instruction of Mr. & Mrs. Franklin Washburn of Dallas, Texas (University Park).
Hello! I can go by Jihu or Ella (middle name). I graduated from The Waterford School in the spring of 2019, and am taking a gap year before I head to college at the University of Southern California in the fall of 2020. I have always loved reading, and during my high school experience, I grew to love analytical discussions of books. I also love writing, so proofreading is a great way for me to help others enhance their skills and clarity in writing.
I came to love math as well, especially AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC even more. I would love to tutor math because it is often the source of many struggles and I want to help make students' experience in math better.
I have also been playing the violin for seven years now, and plan to continue in college. The violin is one of my favorite hobbies/passions, and I would love to share that with others who also love music.
