I enjoyed a 20 year career in business while teaching in Hebrew school part-time. In 2011, I completed my Masters in Secondary Education and hold an Illinois Type 9, teaching certificate with an endorsement in business. I am on staff as a substitute at Evanston Township High School, I taught summer school this past summer and have been invited to teach next summer as well. In Illinois all teachers are required to pass a background check.
I have over 15 years of experience teaching teens. I believe that every student can learn, and I approach every student with genuine caring and respect. I work to foster the "yes I can" belief in students and guide them toward their best. I try to customize every lesson to the student and use his or her life experiences to help him or her understand and process the concepts and skills. My students know that I truly care how well they do and how well I do in teaching them skills and building confidence. The ACT students I have worked with performed, on average, 15% better after 10 hours of lessons.
While I have not pursued a degree or specialty in special education, I have had significant success with students who have been diagnosed with ADD, dyslexia and emotional disorders. I welcome the opportunity to work one-on-one with special needs students.
