"Throughout my teaching career, I have enjoyed, most of all, working with small group tutorials or one-on-one tutoring sessions. I feel that the tutorial setting is the most conducive to teaching and learning. As a tutor I will challenge each student to evaluate his or her learning strategies, skills, and abilities. I will develop lessons that will enhance good skills and strategies and develop skill and strategies to overcome short-comings. My expectation of my students is one of self-examination and the willingness to build new knowledge upon old. I do not believe that tutoring is just a way to get the homework for the next school day or week done, but more of an opportunity to use assignments to become a new and better learner. I am looking forward to put my knowledge, skills, and strategies to work for you and your child.

I have been teaching for more than thirty years. The first seven were spent training firefighters, dispatchers, and paramedics for the State of Michigan. For the next twenty-three years, I was a teacher, of which eight years were in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade, and 15 years in the high school. I have a K-8 endorsement in all subjects and K-9 in Language Arts and Social Science. In addition, I am a fellow of the Red Cedar Writing Project, a national writing project member based at Michigan State University, and have been trained in Language!, a teacher directed phonics program. I am also a teacher trainer for the D.B.Q. (Data Based Question) project, which is a national social studies project. My career has afforded me the opportunity to work with students of all abilities and motivations I have been very active as the general education part of mainstreaming resource room students and have taught Advance Placement classes to juniors and seniors.

Sincerely,  

Krag" less...
