"Hello....my name is Gin, and I love helping others learn! I have been an elementary school teacher for 26 years, and I have tutored students in and out of my classroom. I enjoy finding creative, fun ways to reach my students. I have mostly worked with elementary school aged students, but I have also worked with adults. I have helped adults earn a GED, and I used to tutor athletes at the University of Louisville. These athletes were usually always freshmen, who were passed through school because of their athletic abilities. I was an extensive type of tutor, who helped these student athletes with organization, study skills, note taking, etc. It is always thrilling to see young people learn, grow, and succeed.

I have tutored people basically all my life! I helped friends with classes, as well as formal tutoring. I have tutored Algebra, English, Writing, and Math.

I have an English concentration on my TN Teaching Certificate (which is now expired since I live in KY). I was accepted into the Louisville Writing Project in the '90's, and I have helped many people write. I won an essay contest in college, and I am currently writing a" less...
