I have earned a Master's Degree in Education, focusing on Curriculum and Instructional Processing. I work as a Substitute Teacher in several elementary schools in the area. As a certified educator, I have found that personalizing and tailoring education to the needs of my students gives them a continuing and successful learning experience. As a tutor, I am an extra resource for my students, always available to guide them through any learning issues. I am structured and professional, yet understanding and flexible. I often adapt plans on site, based on the progress of the student and his or her readiness to move forward. I look forward to working with your student giving him or her a pleasant and supportive road to success.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have taught art and drawing classes to elementary school-aged students, as well as in various Humanities classes at the College of DuPage. My art experience is extensive, above and beyond basic training. I have illustrated children's books, designed wall and ceiling murals for private homes, as well as worked with private individuals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience teaching and developing curriculum and instructional strategies for all grade levels, preschool through college. I have spent many a summer tutoring elementary-aged students over the years. My current focus is substitute teaching for local schools, preschool though grade 8.

Study Skills

As a seasoned and experience educator, I have developed and implemented a variety of study skills and timelines. I have taught study skills to all of my students over the years. I also have designed study skills programs for individual students as part of an ongoing tutoring process.
