Greetings! I am a tutor with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English
from the University of Nebraska. In addition to subbing in various classrooms, I have done six extended sub jobs, all at the request of the teachers. I have spent a lot of time in special education and worked one on one with many students. I have also worked in the public school as an aide.I have spent a lot of time in special education and worked one on one with many students. However, I also enjoy working with students who simply want to excel
without being held back by grade boundaries. I have been blessed to be able to connect with most students in a way that makes them feel comfortable. I use a relaxed approach, but have specific goals. I love seeing progress (no matter how small), and I delight in seeing the student see progress as well! My specialty is in writing
skills. I created three creative writing courses, which I also instructed to students via e-mail correspondence for twelve years. I also created an essay
-writing course for students grades 7-12,which takes all anxiety out of writing the basic four-paragraph essay. Students who took my course reported doing very well on the writing section of the ACT
. I do not tutor for research papers. Special-ed teachers often request me as a substitute teacher as I have had experience working with students and helping them with their individual progress. While most of my experience is in grades 7-12, I have also had some experience with younger children, not to mention my own two, who I home schooled for 12 years. I love tutoring and I love seeing progress. Maybe we can see progress together.
