A warm hello to all interested learners.
I have spent 7 years as a full-time high-school teacher specializing in English and later working one-on-one with ESL, LD and gifted students. For the past few years, I've worked with Special Needs students in the District 155 Transition Program. I've also worked for 3 years in the District 219 Homebound Tutoring Program. It has been my good fortune to work with ESL students from all over the world. I find it most rewarding to help these students access our culture and country through their improved language skills.
Over the years, I've learned a great deal from my students about the impact of individual differences on academic success. Some of my students were visual learners, others were auditory and a few needed the hands-on approach. Some of my brightest students struggled to succeed in mainstream public school programs. All, however, benefited enormously from individualized attention.
As your tutor, it is my job to discover your special talents and use them to help you succeed in your classes or your workplace. Along the way, I hope you will come to feel the joy there can be in learning new things. I have tutored students of all ages from 6 to 60 and have enjoyed each experience.
Good luck in finding the tutor that works best for you!
