The best way to tutor a student is to help the student to "see" the material from their world. Classrooms do not always provide this opportunity. I have taught middle school courses and teacher education classes as an adjunct for college campuses. I have spent the past several years teaching ESOL and GED classes to adult populations. My second Master's Degree in in Human Performance Improvement, which gives me an insight to helping understand how my students best operate and understand their perception of the world and the subjects at hand.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am State Certified in Middle Grades in Georgia and was K-12 certified in South Carolina. My subject matter is centered around the student's individual needs at the time of the tutoring relationship. Methodology is determined by student's learning style and strategies developed to enhance the student's study skills.

ESL/ESOL

I believe that teaching my students to better function in an English-speaking world. This include not only the "proper" use of English, but also idioms and every day phrases that Americans use and take for granted that everyone understands. My methods are designed for each student's learning style and the instruction varies to keep the teaching and tutoring session interesting.

Social Studies

My subject matter is student-centered around the student's individual needs at the time of the tutoring relationship.

My college minor was in sociology. I have taught social studies in middle school and sociology ant the freshman level in college. Additional courses included group dynamics, understanding the middle grade student, Senn-Delaney group dynamic and change leadership, and Steven Covey leadership.
