English major (degree from Campbell University) with post-grad experience- I can teach basic or advanced skills to lifelong learners or precocious children in OBX area - offering personal tutoring upo

Methodology

Associate in Arts from College of the Albemarle - Bachelor of Arts from Campbell University -
Some post-graduate experience at UNCW

I was a tutor at both COA and CU while I was a student. I was also awarded the "President's List" distinction while at COA and was published in the CU school newspaper and the CU poetry magazine whenever I submitted articles or poems, respectively.

My tutoring usually starts at comprehension, either reading or listening, because if comprehension is poor, then I have found nothing else can come easily to the student. I prefer not to take remedial students. I prefer students who are at the C level and truly want to become A students - or students who are a the A level and are feeling impatient in the classroom.

For truly precocious students in high school who show an earnest desire to focus on English studies in a more historical and philosophical manner, I am willing to form a personal relationship to get them as advanced as possible before college and perhaps tutor them in person.

Also, I speak some Spanish and have tutored several students from Eastern Europe and am versed in grammar and pronunciation and the intricacies of the English language which foreign speakers often find the most difficult hurdles to finally overcome. Example - Luggage is (sometimes) plural.

Background

I have tutored roughly 10 students previously, both formally and informally.

I had several friends while at CU who came to me with all of their major English papers for my editing and input.

I was given the formal role of student-tutor while at COA and helped three different students from Eastern Europe better grasp the intricacies of English grammar and pronunciation, as well as sentence structure and style.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $3
Rate for online lessons : $16/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $68
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $135

Details

Usually my rates increase as the student becomes younger and the urgency for tutoring increases. For example, if the student is faced with a deadline or the possibility of failing a class or grade the price would generally go up, but not to exceed 20 dollars an hour under any circumstance.

Usually my rates decrease as the student becomes older and the urgency for tutoring decreases. For example, a senior in high school who wants to supplement their English classes from school with more advanced lessons. These lessons would never be less than 16 dollars an hours though.

As most students will fall somewhere in between and as I expect to work with some adult students and some students who speak English as a second language, my rate will probably average around $17.50 an hour for most students, including those in middle and high school.

I will not typically need a break within an hour's span - an hour is not a long time but, if used wisely, a lot can be achieved within an hour.
