Over 10 years experience of one-on-one teaching & tutoring. My passion for teaching was ignited when I decided to forsake a career away from home and homeschool my two children. I planned to homeschool them through 6th grade, but we were having such success I have continued through middle and high school.
I am familiar with and have utilized many curricula. My research and hands on experience with different learning styles has spanned 10+ years. My philosophy is that a student must be excited about what they are learning in order to succeed. Traditional teaching methods utilized in the classroom do not work for every child, and it is my responsibility as an educator to find what works for EVERY student.
My own students have consistently scored in the top national percentile of the Stanford 10 Norm-Referenced Test, and have scored in the 8-9 national stanine. We have reached this success, not by preparing for standardized tests, but by absorbing the skills and concepts necessary to be successful learners.
I graduated in the top of my high school class and attended Arizona State University. At that time, I did not know teaching would be my calling. I have learned in teaching that there is something out there that works for every student. Those students only need to be given the opportunity to find what lights the fire within them.
I am highly skilled in writing, reading and phonics. I love to teach spelling and grammar, and know how to make it clear and easy. I write children's books, and have had poetry and articles published online.
I also teach basic math through Pre Algebra.
