I am a school librarian with more than 25 years of teaching and tutoring experience! I have taught all ages, pre-school through college, in Math, Music, English, History, and Foreign Languages (French, Spanish, Italian and German). I have experience in both public and private schools, and in a variety of curricula: Everyday and Singapore Math, Reading and Writing Workshop among others. I love helping with test prep; SAT, ISEE, SSAT. My students have increased confidence and scores, and have gained admission to top independent schools and colleges after our time spent in test prep. I love helping students find meaning in their learning. So, you won't be bored. We will develop a plan each session, and work hard to complete it -- with stops along the way to try out our learning with games, visuals and fun!
I am a nationally known leader in teaching with technology, and you'll see that in each of our tutoring sessions, if you'd like. We are a team! That means I will maintain contact with your school teachers, and keep parents in the loop to make sure we have covered all that's needed to make my students a success! I have spent years working with national organizations for gifted students and also with students with learning disabilities. This gives me a special perspective on ALL learners, and helps me tailor the best course of study for all my students. In my spare time, I knit, love to visit new places, read about educational technology, spend time with my family, cook, and assist in training dogs to serve as assistance animals.
