I have been teaching for over 25 years in public school, private school, home school, and college. I have been very actively tutoring in the last 10 years. I can help students in most elementary and middle grade subjects, including Algebra. I home schooled my three children for most their pre-college education. For reading, I use a phonics based approach with which I taught my own children to read, and I can include internet sources and games.
I love to work with students of all ages, and I use a positive, encouraging approach. I do not yell at or belittle any student. That's not my style. I often employ a questioning method of instruction. I assist the student in discovering the concepts or answers for themselves as much as possible, although at time demonstration and or explanation is certainly necessary! I use observation, questions, and some testing determine where instruction and remediation should begin.
