Hello, I am what they call "a transplanted native" since I have lived here in the Phoenix metropolitan area since August, 1976. I graduated from a private Christian high school in Massachusetts, where we lived at the time. Several years later, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Bob Jones University, and mainly taught students in private schools in Kentucky, St. Paul, MN and here, including tutoring two second graders in math. More recently, during the time that I worked for a local tutoring agency and tutored students from kindergarten through eighth grade in reading and elementary math, I also completed four reading courses from two community colleges and added a Reading Specialist and SEI (Structured English Immersion) endorsements to my Provisional Elementary Teacher Certificate. I enjoy helping children and adults learn and succeed in their areas of academic need.
