School is not for everyone. There are times when an individual needs one on one instruction which includes many different formats and styles of learning. I have taught for twenty-one years and am experienced in reaching out to even the most reluctant of learners. Together we explore ways of learning that will meet the students' needs. I have worked with children who have learning disabilities as well.
I have a Masters in education and many graduate hours beyond this. I have taught grade levels from preschool to 8th grade. I specialize in language arts for grades 7through college level. I can tutor in any subject grades K- 6th. My philosophy is to share my enthusiasm for learning and help guide an individual to their full potential. Learning is not done in the same fashion for everyone. I believe in differentiating to meet the person's learning style. What works for some in a classroom setting may not always meet the real needs of an individual.
I also volunteer within my community and have been involved with youth groups. My hobbies are to stay active by walking, exercising, gardening, and golfing to name a few. I can honestly say that I believe that understanding each individual's needs is of utmost importance. I look at the whole child to tailor lessons. It is important to instill a positive approach to learning at all times.
