I love to learn and you will too, when we learn together! I have a great sense of humor, great experience with elementary and middle school students, and a great smile. My priority is to guide you through experiences that build up your confidence in yourself and awaken your own excitement and love of learning. Even shy students end up laughing and learning with me, and looking forward to our next session together. Studies have proven that stimulating the pleasure center of the brain with smiles and laughing increases memory retention. Stress and boredom actually create a chemical reaction that eats away at the memory membranes of the brain.
My special talent is being able to explain the same thing in many different ways, finding the unique thought process that connects to the individual learning style of my student. I have been a substitute teacher for three years, from Kindergarten to 8th Grade, and a current teacher of public speaking to 3rd through 9th graders, which has given me exposure to lots of different students' learning styles, including ADD and ADHD. The students in classrooms that I have subbed in always ask for me again, and teachers appreciate my thorough coverage of material.
I have been a private tutor for 3 years, and my students come referred to me by their teachers who know me and by other students who achieved success with me in the past. I teach all subjects, including phonics, reading comprehension, essay-writing, algebra 1, study skills, and public speaking/presentation prep. When you learn with me, you'll get the material covered, expand your confidence, and enjoy the process! This is what learning is supposed to be!
