I have many years' experience teaching and tutoring children and adults, both in classroom and private settings. My main academic background is in language: writing and reading, but I have tutored people in math, as well as social studies and science. I have taught multiple subjects in high school, vocational, adult education, and GED classes.

I believe one-on-one tutoring is ideally the optimum learning environment for most students. I truly enjoy evaluating, along with the student, what they want to focus on and structuring, implementing, and guiding them in that plan. It is very fulfilling to participate with the student in achieving their goals. I always stay aware that I am there for the student--for their needs and goals and the tutoring process is always with that focus.

Along with knowledge of subjects and the skill to work with them, I bring a sense of humor and a proactive attitude and energy in being involved with the student and their learning process.

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.

Proofreading

I have taught many English classes where writing essays were a main part of the curriculum. In fact, I am teaching such a class currently at a community college

Public Speaking

In addition to many years (15) of classroom teaching, I have performed in theatre productions as well as staging my own solo shows. I have also taught speech classes as well as job skill classes, helping students with job interview skills and techniques. In addition, I have facilitated in-service trainings in varied employment settings.

Social Studies

I have taught GED preparation classes for many years at a local community college. One of the sections of the GED exam is Social Studies. I believe I can tutor social studies to anyone at a high school or lower grade level.
