I am a retired teacher with several years experience teaching students of diverse backgrounds and abilities(including special needs). My passion has always been teaching and I strongly believe that every student has the capacity to learn - some just go at a slower pace, and need someone who will exercise more patience and understanding. I am that someone and I am a great encourager.
Although my area of competence is in English Language (grammar, reading comprehension etc.) as a tutor, I often have to help my students grasp concepts in other subject areas, as well. My focus is to help the student to the best of my ability to master his or her area of challenge.
In addition to being a trained teacher, I hold a masters degree in Counseling Psychology and have taught Psychology at the tertiary level; I also have a doctorate in education. Currently, I tutor students of varying ages, one-on-one in their homes and have also helped students with ACT and SAT preparation in English and Reading.
Not only have I had positive feedback from my students and their parents with regard my inclusive teaching style, but the students themselves have seen improvement in their work which has led to tangible results.
My hallmark, I believe, is that I teach people, not subjects; so I am always mindful of my students' differing learning styles and capabilites. I am committed to serving the students who come under my tutelage and to help them realize their full potential.
There is a bright future ahead of you, and I hope you will give me the opportunity to help you reach for the stars.
I look forward to serving you!
