I tutor students in grades K through 5th in language arts, math, social studies, and health, and teach English as a Foreign Language to adults. Years ago I developed and led an art class for preschoolers called "Adventures in Art," and more recently have provided healthcare staff and community education. I have a bachelor of arts degree in English from the University of Michigan and a master's degree in social work from The Catholic University of America. In addition, I am certified with the National Tutoring Association. My teaching philosophy is based on Stephen Krashen's work, which suggests learning is most effective when students are content and free of anxiety. Therefore, I strive to incorporate smiles and laughter in every lesson.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored grade school children in math, spelling, reading, and American history. As a licensed clinical social worker, I have worked with children in a variety of settings for the past 15 years. I'm creative, have a sense of humor, and strive to make the learning experience fun as well as effective.

ESL/ESOL

Providing ESL instruction to children and adults from all over the world. My work schedule is generally 9-5, Monday through Friday, but I do make exceptions on a case-by-case basis. I have a Bachelor's degree in English, a Master's degree in Social Work, and three year's of teaching experience. I believe helping people understand and speak English benefits not only individual students but also the society at large. A 30-minute initial consultation session is complimentary to new clients.

Phonics

I teach phonics to children and use a number of teaching tools including games, flash cards, worksheets, and music. I incorporate fun in my lessons to engage students and build from their strengths while assessing and targeting problem areas. In addition to having a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in social work, I have 13 years experience providing staff and community education and am certified with the National Tutoring Association.

Proofreading

I have over three year's experience editing manuscripts for individuals, and reports and proposals for large corporations. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Master's degree in Social Work. I am a member in good standing with the Editorial Freelancers Association.

Reading

Reading Qualifications: Bachelor's degree in English Literature; Master's degree in Social Work.

Writing

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a master's degree in Social Work; I worked as a technical editor for a large consulting firm in DC and as a freelance writer for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration; and I have spent the last 9 months editing a divinity student's dissertation.
