I am a master teacher, nationally certified in English. I hold a master's degree in education from Northern Arizona University and a master's degree in educational leadership. I am within a semester of being finished with my doctoral degree and am a certified reading specialist. I have taught everything from elementary school through graduate school and am a published writer. My area of expertise is at-risk students, and I believe all students are capable but that our methods need to match student needs. I have more than 26 years teaching experience, and am more than happy to help you get over those hurdles and make your goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

I am a professional development specialist with nine years experience in the field. I manage a faculty of 16 teachers and am in charge of their highly qualified status needs. Additionally, as an AVID coordinator and teacher, I have taught thousands of students how to write a resume and cover letter, identify a job and prepare for the interview. For fourteen years, I worked at the university to help teachers locate and procure jobs as well.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified classroom teacher and have been for 23 years. I am currently at an urban school, K-6 grade, serving as the school's reading specialist. I service 424 students, taking charge of their assessment as well as their instruction. I work with dozens of young students every day. My job though requires that I work with those who struggle most. This means that I have to adapt by style to every individual student's needs.

General Computer

I have extensive computer experience, including but not limited to PowerPoint, Excel, and Word. I have spent the last ten years as an online student and the last seven as an online instructor (WebCt, and Blackboard) and am very well versed in TaskStream. I am familiar with both Macintosh and IBM/IBM clones.

Literature

I am a nationally board certified high school English teacher with 27 years experience.

Soccer

I have extensive experience in soccer, both as an athlete and a coach. I played for more than twenty years, both in Europe and in the States. I coached for St. Mary's High School and, in fact, began that school's team. I understand and love the game, but I understand even more the necessity for raising the player by building upon that player's skills.

Study Skills

As a teacher and university professor for 27 years, I have had to teach my students how to learn. There is much brain-based research in learning, however, and this is truly where I excel. AVID, for which I have been both a teacher and a coordinator, focuses on developing college skills in high school students. My students succeed. Last year, we raised over $2 million dollars in scholarships for my students to go to college.
