"I have taught literature, reading, writing, grammar, and study skills to teenagers and adults for 30 years in both public and private settings. My overall success has given me the confidence that I am an excellent tutor. I quickly establish rapport with my students whether in a classroom of 30 or on a one-to-one basis. I am extremely knowledgeable in my subject fields, and my on-going study has enhanced that expertise. Along with earning my Master's Degree, I also have over 200 hours in professional development workshops and courses. I also chaired a small committee which re-wrote the English curriculum during my last teaching position. All in all, I have a love of teaching and of the students I have worked with. In fact, I am still in contact many of the adults whom I taught 50 years ago.

My undergraduate degree concentrated on literature and teaching methods courses; whereas, my graduate degree was comprised of many secondary education courses. I mentored a number of first and second year teachers during my career in a high school setting. I taught SAT prep courses over the years and am able to teach prep also for the ACT. One of my most interesting experiences was teaching applied reading skills to a group of first year medical students. Because of the enormous course load, they needed the ability to adjust their reading skills to the specific material they were assigned. Their Gross Anatomy course was the most challenging and extensive block of their study. I was able to teach them differentiated techniques including skimming, scanning, and intensive reading. I am also quite skilled at adapting and adjusting to new situations; in addition, my ability to relate to my students and to gain their confidence quickly results in success.

I like to compare myself to an athletic coach...I will prepare my students with the skills they need to be successful independently. My primary goal in tutoring is to bring my students to a place where they will no longer need me." less...
