Greetings. I am a semi-retired teacher with a Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education having taught for 12 years. I am able to teach the subjects of English, reading, writing, science, social studies, mathematics, and middle school Spanish.

I have tutored for 2 years since retiring from teaching full time for at a parochial school. My style is to focus on what the student's needs are, find out the teaching pattern of their teacher, give the students a complete understanding of what they are studying why and how, and to guide their understanding and learning process.

My demeanor is geared toward the comfort and success of the student. The student has to accept me as the director of their learning for the time we have together, and we will have success in our endeavors in gaining knowledge.

I wish you all success in your efforts in learning and in finding an appropriate tutor.

Dear Prospective Students,

I have been teaching in an elementary school the last 10 years to a predominate population of Hispanic students, 90% of the total student body. As long as the parents and students are positive about learning the language, we can be successful as a team in the development of English, written and spoken.


I have taught reading and English classes for 12 years in a private school. I first started with kindergarten for 2 years after which I moved onto fifth grade grammar, spelling, and reading classes. I am currently tutoring students learning English as a second language.

Social Studies

I have taught social studies at the 5th through 8th grade levels for 10 years at an elementary education school.


I've played volleyball for quite a number of years. In 1974 I helped the Men's Volleyball team win the Northwest YMCA championship. I've played Intramural volleyball in Elgin for 5 years. While teaching elementary education in Elgin, I coached the Boy's volleyball team 1 year and successfully coached a coed volleyball team for 4 years and ran a coed tournament for those 4 years as well.
