I come from a family of teachers! My mother was a curriculum specialist in an elementary school and my father taught math at the collegiate level. Frequently my parents would teach me at home because I couldn't understand the subject as it was being taught in school, so I was tutored in math, science, and writing. I understand what it's like to need that extra help and I create innovative ways of learning difficult material! I tutored students in reading and language arts when I was in junior high and high school.

Recently I taught English at the Community College of Aurora, and got great reviews from students. In addition, I've taught business writing and grammar classes for nine years - as a professional speaker working in major cities throughout the U.S.

I am also a coach and work in the areas of personal and professional productivity; health and fitness. I've coached on nutrition and fitness, and have studied Yoga since I was 15 and taught Yoga at the Cherry Creek Athletic Club.

My teaching style is described as energetic and engaging. Topics are made interesting and learning is made fun when I'm teaching a subject. Students produce results beyond what they think is possible! My students learn skills and ways of thinking about the subject that will last a life time.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Public Speaking

I have been a public speaker for nine years. During my work as a speaker I've had three national speaking contracts and have led programs in 48 states to over 12,000 people. I look forward to helping you or your student become a better public speaker.

Study Skills

I taught time management (CareerTrack/Fred Pryor Seminars) and have coached individuals on personal productivity tips for ten years. From having taught myself organizing principles and learning tips and techniques I am uniquely qualified to tutor in this subject. In addition, I have recently begun to study how the brain works and how to use the brain to maximized effectiveness in study and work.

Thank YOU! — My son loved working with you! We'll look forward to future lessons. I wasn't sure how he would respond, sometimes he isn't always open to change, but not this time. He needs a caring hand in his education. Thanks again! ...
