I am a certified teacher (State of Illinois Teaching Certificate Type 03 and NCLB Highly Qualified) with over 15 years of experience teaching and tutoring. I work especially well in one-on-one or small group settings, and have taught in educational venues ranging from kindergarten to junior college.
My areas of expertise are in English language arts, basic math, algebra, geometry, and reading comprehension. I have also worked with dyslexic students (I was formerly an instructor with the Rotary Dyslexia Center in Flint, Michigan). My goal is to not only scaffold the skills of the student, but to create and maintain a support system consisting of the tutor (myself), the student, and if applicable, parents and the student's primary educator.
