For 3 years, I taught English to college freshmen as well as tutored college students in English. I continue tutoring individuals of various ages today. While my undergraduate and graduate education focused on English, I also have a great love for basic math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra I and 2. I have tutored less in math than I have in English, but my primary method of tutoring is the same for both subjects: practice, practice, practice. Of course, I first show students how the intended writing or math problem needs to be done. After that, however, I try to give the student a chance to grasp the concept for his- or herself. Ultimately, I like having students do much practice while I act as support when needed. After all, as I have learned in my educational experience, trial by error is often the best teacher.

Currently available as early as 6 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays as well as on Saturdays at 9 am, 10 am, and 4 pm at the public library of your choice.
