I am a newly retired high school Biology and Physical Science teacher. I am happy to help tutor any students in any subject from Kindergarten through 8th grade. I am particularly good in math and science. I've taught high school students and I am best in Biology and Physical Science/General science.
I generally have excellent rapport with students and I have to admit, I miss teaching them. I am considered an exceptional teacher with a lot of patience and a love of learning. My hobbies are hiking, birding, camping, bike-riding, photography and astronomy. I applied to be a teacher astronaut! Basically, I am a science nerd, but I enjoy all subjects.
I am very good with students who have learning disabilities, such as dyslexia. I am gentle and compassionate.
I was trained by Betty Ann Judah of The Dyslexia Institute in Santa Rosa. Working as a tutor in her organization, I helped a fourth grade boy and an adult man improve their reading, comprehension and writing skills. It takes physical movement, manipulatives, plus a different way of looking at words to change a person's ability to read and write. Different methods work for different student, so it is important to individualize instruction.
I have recently retired teaching at the high school level - Biology and Physical Science. Before that, I taught middle school math and science. I have a California multiple subject credential. I took the national Praxis exam to earn this. I can teach any elementary or middle school subject.
