I have worked with children and adults of all ages, most of whom were not successful in a classroom setting. I love when my students get what I am teaching and I keep trying to find new ways to teach until that happens. I understand the problems that come with being ADHD and my goal is always to build confidence along with knowledge. I also understand how difficult it is to study a subject that has always been a problem, how hard it is to make yourself work on it. I also know how great it feels to master a subject that seemed impossible to conquer.

I have worked with kids who were behaviorally challenged and young adults and adults involved in the criminal justice system. I have taught in grade schools, special ed, junior high, high school and college. I have also taught senior citizens how to use the internet.

I love working one-on-one, and my students and I always have fun together while they learn.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I tutored elementary students last year for Professional Tutors of America and on my own. The students' grade levels ranged from 2nd grade through 6th grade. I tutored in both reading and math quite successfully. Although I had textbooks, I was also able to supplement the curriculum using resources available on the internet. I feel very confident in my abilities to be an excellent tutor for elementary grade students; I also have great references.

English

Formerly a high school English teacher, I now teach GED studies and tutor in English. I specialize in helping students become fluent writers and like to make English fun. I have great references!
