Learning can be fun, especially if the goals are made clearer. My familiarity with the public and parochial school system enables me to help students take a broader approach to learning. The English language is challenging, and learning to use the words to one's advantage can be powerful. Taking the mystery out of large reading and writing assignments is frequently a challenge once a student leaves the classroom, but helping to break down assignments into more manageable pieces can make a huge difference. Frequently, working outside the classroom helps hone the tools needed to succeed in high school.
Some students want to have a helping hand as they address the assignments of the day. Some students want to prepare for anticipated tests down the road. I operate in a flexible manner.
Organization is a large key to success. As a seasoned parent of two, I am familiar with boys' and girls' learning styles and the variations therein. My expertise is elementary and middle school tutoring. Though my forte is English, I have an extensive biology background as well.
