"I have taught small groups and individuals for over 20 years, both in school settings and in students' homes or at neutral locations like coffee shops and bookstores. The first three questions I ask myself are "How does this person learn best? What is his or her learning style? How can I help this person learn more effectively?"

"I have taught small groups and individuals for over 20 years, both in school settings and in students' homes or at neutral locations like coffee shops and bookstores. The first three questions I ask myself are "How does this person learn best? What is his or her learning style? How can I help this person learn more effectively?"

I have a Master's degree in Special Education from the Johns Hopkins University (in Baltimore, MD), and a current teaching certificate from the State of Arizona, which qualifies me to teach in both elementary schools and high schools. I also have special qualifications on my teaching certificate to teach math and reading.

I am a highly skilled tutor for students ranging from special education children in public elementary school to middle and high school students in private schools like BASIS and Tesseract, all the way up to college students in ASU. In fact, I have recently worked with a 4th grade student who improved so much that he lost his special education status. One of my high school students is now close to a solid B-student in 10th grade, after having failed his entire freshman year. And one of my ASU students came back to me for help in four different math courses and earned the grades he wanted in all of them.

I have a deep understanding of how most students can excel in reading (both decoding and comprehension), math (from elementary math all the way up to calculus and statistics) and writing, including both basic writing and advanced composition. I have also helped students master social studies and sciences by teaching them effective study skills and techniques that enable them to learn and retain the information efficiently and effectively.

With this flexibility, I go beyond the initial reason for your tutoring request to help you with those other academic challenges that come up that wouldn't necessarily have been important enough for you to hire a tutor.

Over the years I have been asked many times "What do you teach?" My answer has always been "Students." I" less...
