I am an experienced Illinois certified teacher, willing to provide tutoring services in Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science and Career counseling to children 10 years old and up, Middle school aged children, high school students and adults. I am willing to conduct tutoring services in person and online. Not only am I a certified language teacher (French, Introductory Spanish), I am certified in English as a Second Language from Western Governors University and Online Teaching from the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire. I have a science minor and have taught Middle School life, earth and physical science, as well as high school Chemistry.
Most recently, I have taught Language Arts and Science for a local elementary charter school, as well as technology skills, cryptography (the science of secret messages) and social studies (global education). I have won three grants from the Chicago Foundation for Education in Global Education and in Science.
Earlier in my career, I spent 10 years at the college level administering and implementing a College Bound program at Robert Morris College (now Robert Morris University). Not only did I test, place and assist students in basic skills remediation, but I personally taught Study Skills and Computer Assisted Learning in the new Personal Computer environment. I took this early exposure to Computer Technology, Introductory Word Processing, Database building and Desktop Publishing Skills to the adult community at Dawson Skills Center and the Center for Inner City Studies of Northeastern University.
I believe that my experience working with all types of people, including adults in Canada, Colombia, Venezuela, Ghana and Brazil, has prepared me for tutoring children, youth and adults from diverse backgrounds in person or online. I use technology as a tool and know how to develop specific skills through a complete assessment, frequent feedback and reward system unique to each student.
