Educator with History and Political Science Degree and Teaching Experience in Both Offering Tutoring to Children of ALL AGES

Methodology

I will teach and tutor children and adults of all ages, from the time they are in 1st-2nd grade all the way through 12th grade. Typically I open up with 1-3 warm-up questions either about a topic we are about to learn about and study, or a topic we reviewed the previous lesson. These questions are meant to be fun and get the student excited. Afterwards, we dive into the lesson itself. If the student already has his or her notes and textbook, I have them bring this as well as all assignments. I give the student a chance to first ask any immediate questions. From there, I have a few lesson plans of my own that may include my own notes if the student needs them, and also any activities that I think will be beneficial.
This varies from student to student because I try to base my lessons off of what and how they are learning in class. Once I know, I can either review or create my own lessons if necessary to help the student. Depending on the topic I may give an extra assignment at the end, or work on the assignment the student has together. In History I ask the students to participate as well so they can be empowered. I want each person and group to have fun, but ultimately learn.

Background

I have a Bachelor's in History and Political Science, and Master's in Pastoral Studies. I have worked in education for the last 7 years as a tutor, lead teacher, and Director of Education programs. I taught History and Civics as well as Religion to Middle and High School students. I also tutored Elementary school students. Currently I work with people of all ages as an education administrator and also teacher.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $3
Rate for online lessons : $18/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $85
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $160

Details

Rate: $15-21 per child per hour.
While $18 would be the average and the number I put, the $15-$20 range is meant so families can
negotiate (particularly when we factor in travel prices, depending on how far I have to travel). If I am
tutoring a family in my neighborhood I will not be charging extra for traveling. The distance I need
to travel to tutor will factor in travel costs in addition to payment.
Rates can be negotiable case-by-case. If a family has 3 children, we can negotiate rates for all 3
children dependent upon lessons and age difference. Package deals are included in a range of $70-
90 for 5 hours, or $140-170 for 10 hours.

Webcam: I put $18 per hour; $15-$20 per hour is the acceptable rate.

Payment: Preferably the same day I am tutoring the child. If the family or group needs to pay early, I will accept early payments; please do not give me late payments.
