I have degrees as a registered nurse and have a juris doctor in law. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in political science and history. I successfully tutored my child and can teach adults and children equally well. Working one-on-one can improve English grammar, comprehension, and vocabulary. Law and nursing concepts are explained for easy comprehension. Writing skills are taught. Everyone can learn if they have the right instructor(s).

My approach to instruction is collaborative in that initially the goal is identified and strategies are designed. As the student and instructor work together, the process is constantly re-evaluated and change(s) implemented, as deemed necessary. A successful learning experience is guided by the needs and responses of the student. A great man once observed, "You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him find it within himself.” Galileo Galilei. This statement illuminates the teaching and learning experience.

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.

I have used phonics extensively in teaching reading and spelling with homeschooling efforts. I am experienced with phonics in the McGuffey series of teaching materials.
