Frederick's Tutoring and Resumes
About this pro
My goal in tutoring is not to show off how much I know, but to use what I know to help learners get better at the subject they are asking for help on. I really seek excellence in my work, whatever it is, whether it is raking up leaves in the yard, or writing an academic paper. What is unique about tutoring is that excellence is measured by how well students are helped. I love the subjects I tutor, and the opportunity to work with motivated students. This is the big difference between teaching and tutoring. The motivation of learners who ask for tutoring is far superior to students in a class. This makes tutoring far more fulfilling.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$30 per hour for tutoring algebra and statistics. $50 per hour for tutoring Excel and SPSS. I tutor within a 25 mile radius of my residents. But I do charge more for farther travel. For travel up to 10 miles, no extra charge. For travel beyond ten miles, I charge $5 extra.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes. My field is psychology, so I am constantly looking at peer-reviewed journals both in print and online to keep up with new developments. I also specialize in advanced statistics, and consistently work with a number of governmental and private data sets to conduct different analyses.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After earning A's in my first algebra and statistics courses, I was approached by another student about applying for work at the college's learning center. She told me the learning center was always looking for student tutors, so I applied and was hired. I tutored at the learning center until I transferred to a 4 year university.
