I am a Certificated Teacher with nine years experience in teaching 6th grade, middle, high school, and adults. I have taught "at risk" students as well as honors students. I believe in challenging to the full potential, assist in achieving that potential and then standing back, as that students basks in the glory of their achievement. I do this by integrating academics into all lessons and believe that parent interaction with the teacher and student is the key to success.
I have a strong background in and have taught in the classroom, the following subjects: MS Office Applications, Entrepreneurship, Adult ESL, Adult ESL Citizenship (k-12 and adults) and SAT Prep (writing) for high school students.
For one of my previous schools, I wrote the course outline and decided upon the book for the Computer Applications course which they currently use. Additionally, I was the Lead teacher for this school during the integration of iPass and Study Island (computer based learning programs to assist students to achieve high test scores on the CST).
Due to my credentials and being SDAIE certified I am extremely familiar with creating a stable yet inspiring and positive learning environment for all students. In my teaching career, I have been successful in implementing the educational philosophy, teaching methods and approaches that I have learned through attendance at various seminars and retreats. I know together, we can achieve the goals that you desire if you choose me to be your tutor.
