"I have taught in Elementary, Middle and High School. I believe in "hands-on" learning. Learning should be fun, interesting and rewarding. Students learn when a teacher is enthusiastic about a subject and knowledgeable. I work from the student's needs and build on the subject in slow, steady increments.

"I have taught in Elementary, Middle and High School. I believe in "hands-on" learning. Learning should be fun, interesting and rewarding.

I enjoy working with all kinds of students. I have worked in Gifted Education as well as Special Education.

Every child is special. Students can have learning styles and preferences. Some students like visual clues, some like auditory learning and some learn best with "hands-on" or tactile learning. Knowing how this particular student learns is an important clue to success in the tutoring process.

I am a certified Space Science for Schools teacher. Space Science is a personal interest. For four years I ran the Star Lab program at my school.

My degree is in English Literature. I am a poet and writer as well. I have taught Writing Traits in 5th grade and Creative Writing.

I worked as a instructor in a Computer Adult Training school. I taught several of the Microsoft Office products including WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT.

When students are not receiving good grades they often feel defeated. I work to overcome the "I can't" and bring it to the "I Can". Learning where the misunderstandings are and then encouraging students always brings success." less...
