I love helping students to succeed. It is my job as a certified teacher in all the sciences and social sciences to help students become aware of their strengths and teach them methods to overcome their weaknesses. Usually just a few sessions and a lot a positive reinforcement will work wonders with a frustrated student. I consider my student's success as my measure of my own success.
I have many years of teaching experience in all types of environments with all types of students. As a substitute in several districts for many years, I have been in all types of schools and classrooms. I have also taught in a private high school, college, the business world, and in a children's hands on science museum. My background is a broad brush of many different teaching experiences and I bring this experience to the table with each student I work with.
I began my teaching in the social science areas of Economics, Government (Political science) and Sociology and through additional schooling I have become certified in Psychology, AP U.S. History, World History, as well as AP Biology, AP Earth Science, Chemistry and Physics. I also love to write and have taught literature, creative writing, and Argument and Rhetorical Analysis. I particularly like to help students analyze and improve their study skills and have been quite successful at this.
Please see an example of my work in the Lessons section where I wrote an explanation of Active Transport for the Biology section.
If chosen, I will do my best to help your child succeed at his/her highest level possible.
