A proud United States Army veteran, honing seven years of experience in Exceptional Education P-12, Middle Grades Reading and Math 4-8, ASVAB, ACT, English, Reading and Writing, I have been exposed to diverse backgrounds, as well as learning styles. Composed in this package is also compassion, patience and diligence.
Honing some doctoral work in Adult Education, a post master's certificate in college teaching from Capella, MEd in Curriculum and Instruction from American Intercontinental University and BA in General Studies and Business from Columbia College of Missouri, I have taught general and core education subjects at all levels of instruction to include elementary, middle grades, high school Junior college. This includes alternative school. My extensive experience extends from instructing and teaching male students (behavioral and psychological) in an all male residential treatment facility from ages 6-17. My tutoring experience ranges from military instruction, K-12 and adult students. Exposure to most personality traits and behaviors allows me to easily accommodate most individual learning styles.
My teaching style is participative, but structured. Humor is an important tool, as well. I frequently utilize interactive technology in my instruction to enhance student engagement. I lecture only when necessary, and love to make my students feel as though there are an integral part of the cognitive learning process. I believe in pushing students to their potential and beyond. I value the thoughts and ideas of my students. Student opinion is very important to me, because it determines how I can bring out the very best in their academic performance. I see the educational process, as a learning experience and because every learner learns differently, my instruction is modified to accommodate each learner's individual need. I simply love teaching and instructing. I look forward to tutoring you and/or your child so that you too can reach your fullest potential and goals. I look forward to meeting you soon!
