With eighteen years of teaching experience in several different states, I have encountered all types of students on many different academic and cognitive levels. Each student is unique and the method and length of time that it takes them to comprehend new information varies according to their abilities and the manner in which the information is presented. Because of the inherent individuality that we all possess no one model of teaching is applicable for all students. Tutoring one on one affords the teacher an opportunity to offer individualized instruction, which is not possible in a normal classroom setting with twenty-five or more students. I formulate my lessons by first taking the students needs into consideration while maintaining a high level of interest with creative lessons that will promote learning.
I have certification in California as well as Florida. My areas of specialization are English, journalism, ESL, reading, writing,and public speaking. I have also achieved Highly Qualified status theater/drama and reading. I am a published author and I've just completed my third novel, therefore I can honestly say that the art of writing is very close to my heart.
