I have worked in the past as an instructional assistant and substitute teacher for grades K-6. In addition, I have taken numerous graduate school classes in education, and tutored a second grader in reading. With four grown children of my own, two of which have ADD, I have done a great deal of one on one tutoring with my kids. I'm a very patient person and really enjoy students of all ages including adults. Learning should be fun, not a chore. I try my best to make it fun. Getting to know the student is very important to me, as students learn in different ways. My strongest subjects to tutor are reading and writing, but I can tutor other subjects (not math). It is important that the tutor "click" with the student so that learning can happen. Given the opportunity, I will make every effort to teach to the best of my ability.
