"School was never some place I particularly enjoyed as a kid. I was shy and self conscious, with little confidence in my ability. However, reading and English were always my favorite subjects in school, and the only ones I cared about at the time. I pursued a career teaching English because high school and college English teachers encouraged me to develop my natural gift of teaching. They recognized something in me that I did not see in myself. Their encouragement in my life inspired me to look for and tap into the, sometimes hidden, potential in my students. I have always been an innovative and dedicated teacher/tutor while remaining focused on the academic standards of the subject I am teaching.

Because my teachers believed in me and fanned the spark that was there, I actually branched out with confidence and great success to teach other subjects such as American and World History, Art, Record Keeping, Journalism, Speech, and Film as Literature. My life experiences are eclectic, including teaching in both public and private schools, teaching all levels of abilities, teaching middle school, high school, and home school, and working as Head of Circulation at the Caldwell Library for nine years. I have tutored all grades from elementary through GED prep and college. I love teaching. I love creating a scaffold on which a student can build new skills and then watching that student blossom into a confident and able young person. Every student is unique and every student can succeed with the right tools.
