Learning should be fun, not a hassle! I am an experienced teacher, specializing in the primary grades, although I have taught at the college and adult levels as well. A graduate of the National College of Education (now called National Louis University), in Evanston IL, teaching is my passion.

In addition to a BA in Applied Behavioural Sciences, I have met all of the requirements for a B.S. in Elementary Education with the exception of Practice Teaching. I was too busy teaching to take four months off to practice teach. Additionally I have more than 120 Hours at the Mayerson Academy in Cincinnati where I focused on reading, phonics, and the others primary grade subjects and many of the current techniques for teaching them.

Teaching the fundamentals of reading, writing, and arithmetic (and, yes, even penmanship) should not be done to the tune of the hickory stick, but with love, patience, and understanding. I can offer your child an emotionally safe environment in which to learn and grow.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in elementary math, English, grammar. reading and vocabulary. After decades of teaching experience, I am confident in my ability to help any child improve in his/her studies. In addition to teaching the primary grades, I have spent 1 yr as a full time 5th grade teacher and another year teaching 3rd thru 5th Special Education. In addition. I spent last summer in Belize where I taught four 5th grade boys reading, math, spelling, grammar, and English.

Elementary Math

Fundamentals of math

English

Proper grammar, sentence structure, vocabulary, and an understanding of the parts of speech all contribute to the knowledge and use of the English language.

ESL/ESOL

I utilize the total immersion method when teaching English as a 2nd language. My experience includes working with students of all ages from Asia, Eastern Europe, and Central and South America.

GED

Get ready for the GED test. We'll prepare for all the subjects included on the test and have some fun along the way. But, there will be homework. If you are ready to work and learn, and to conquer your fears, then I can help you. I have been teaching and tutoring for literally decades.

Grammar

Good grammar is fundamental to success in speaking and writing the English language.

Reading

Basic reading skills such as phonics and sight reading using fun, interesting, and challenging materials.

Study Skills

Learn how to prioritize assignments, use assorted study skills, and apply the answer to the old question, "How do you eat an elephant?" Organization is another key to good study habits. If your child has difficulty getting the assignments completed, or perhaps even started, I can help. I am a graduate of the National College of Education (now called National Louis University), in Evanston IL.

Vocabulary

It is difficult to read if one does not understand the meaning of the words he/she is reading. The larger the vocabulary, the easier all forms of communication become.
