"Hello! Thank you for taking a moment to read my bio.

First, a confession. I don't just love teaching. It's WHO I AM. As a child I'd line up my stuffed animals on the floor and "teach" them letters and numbers. In high school, I'd help other students. Throughout my 30+ year professional career, I've been called on multiple times to teach and train.

"Hello! Thank you for taking a moment to read my bio.

First, a confession. I don't just love teaching. It's WHO I AM. As a child I'd line up my stuffed animals on the floor and "teach" them letters and numbers. In high school, I'd help other students. Throughout my 30+ year professional career, I've been called on multiple times to teach and train.

I have been a tutor on Wyzant's platform since 2013. Certified in 16 subjects,12 of which are Language Arts based. Teaching English as a Second Language is my specialty. And I'm adaptable with a varied student base. My youngest student was 8, my oldest 67!

I hold a BS in Elementary Education from University of Phoenix. I'm now pursuing my Masters Degree in ESL/ELL. I've completed all required education testing here in Illinois (Content Knowledge, Elementary Testing, Aptitude-grades K-9). My student teaching was done in Chicago for a wonderful First Grade class.

In addition to tutoring, I have over 30 years of professional work experience. I am an expert with MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. I also have exposure to using Salesforce, Shelf Logic, Photoshop, Paintshop Pro, and now I've added SAP to this list!

My approach to teaching is to allow my students to direct the lesson. I'm guide and mentor. I don't care for lecturing as I find it boring. I prefer active lessons with my students and I taking part together.

I look forward to working with you - and helping you to be the best you can!" less...
