"I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and an Associate's degree in Middle Grades Education with focus in math and science, professional education experience with children of all ages (infant to high school), and as someone with a passion for learning and helping, I have personal educational experience with people of all ages.

It can be hard to find someone good at teaching, and it can be hard to find someone good at math, but finding someone who is both is truly challenging regardless of the level of the math. I am an outstanding Math tutor because I naturally grasp mathematical concepts and I have years of educational experience that has honed my ability to convey those concepts to people of all ages.

I stand out as an Elementary Science tutor because of my genuine enthusiasm for science. I find that children pick up the enthusiasm of the people around them, and people of all ages learn better when it is something they are enthusiastic about. Learning is easy when it is fun!

I am a good reading tutor because I enjoy helping people of all ages find literature that excites them, and sharing the literature that I enjoy. The only way to get better at reading is to practice, and if you are engaged with the material then practicing is something fun to look forward to instead of a chore to dread and avoid. My personal favorite genre is fantasy, but I have read a little bit of everything because I love to read other people's favorite book - what is YOUR favorite?

I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult. My childhood may have been easier had I been diagnosed earlier, but it certainly gives me a valuable perspective as I interact with children with ADHD. I share the coping mechanisms I picked up to function as a child and then young adult, and I have a large repertoire of teaching and behavior management methods because I know what worked best for me (and what did NOT!). Most importantly, my perspective provides me with empathy that helps me remain patient as long as necessary.
