Each student has their own unique style of learning, and I love helping students succeed and turn learning into an adventure. As a professional educator of many years, there is nothing more exciting than to watch the light bulb of self discovery turn on as students apply their education to their personal lives. My specialty is teaching all types of students and my goal is to find the style that works for them. My calm composure and positive attitude has often been recognized as the grounding that helps pave the way for students to build their own self-esteem.
Not only am I experienced, but I hold a master's in special education with a focus on learning disabilities. My B.A. is in English, and I am a certified CA. English teacher, grades 6-12. I also have taught and am certified in Montessori- grades 3-5. The beautiful Montessori innovative style of self exploration can be applied to all grades, including high school. For years I worked as a public school home/hospital teacher for students who couldn't be in school for emotional or physical reasons. My students ranged from 3rd grade to seniors in high school. The setting was a one-on-one teaching program, which I excel in.
I also have been a successful teacher in many different situations ranging from teaching ESL in Greece, to a middle school special education teacher on an indian reservation in Montana. Not only have I taught in schools, but I also have tutored adults in ESL and students in elementary school.
I am flexible with time, and even though I have a four hour cancellation policy, I understand that emergencies do happen and therefore offer makeup classes. Because I understand that any "teaching" situation is also a "learning" situation, I appreciate feedback.
It will be my pleasure to work with you as we explore the world of learning!
