I'm a retired teacher with over 25 years combined experience in classroom teaching, tutoring, sewing and knitting. I have 8 years experience tutoring all ages. Before that I had classroom experience in grades 1 through 8. Teaching one on one is what I do best, but I am willing to work with small groups as well. Elementary math, spelling, English grammar, reading, vocabulary building, phonics and reading comprehension are my areas of expertise. I offer homework support in those subjects as well as supplemental studies for students who need to get caught up. Homework support in elementary science, social studies, history, and geography is also offered.
I also offer how-to lessons in sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting and needlepoint. I have been sewing and knitting professionally for 4 years. I'm very patient, so whether you have no experience or used to do a little, I can help you fulfill you dream of, "I always wanted to learn to do that."
I am very patient and treat my students with respect. I encourage students to learn how to think for themselves so that they can become problem solvers, intuitive and unafraid to try something new.
