Dear Enthusiastic Hunters of Knowledge,
I won't bore you with citing all the experience I have learning alongside children. I'll just say that I have been teaching/coaching/tutoring children for over thirty years. I love it! I am currently a certified teacher in Illinois. I have a passion for learning and passing on that knowledge to the next generation and even the older generation - actually, anyone who will listen! My area of concentration is the social sciences but I have also taught math, reading, literature, language arts, music appreciation, physical education, and religion. I have also coached baseball, softball, basketball, and volleyball for girls and boys. I love making a difference in people's lives. I believe to educate anyone they must first trust you. A person must establish a relationship with those he/she wishes to influence and educate. A teacher must be a positive influence on many aspects of a child's life and educate the whole person. Anyone can guide a student through a book about a subject but it takes someone who is passionate about knowledge to truly educate. Knowledge is Power, sharing that knowledge is EMPOWERING a person to succeed! See you soon!
I have a bachelors degree in Social Sciences from Saint Xavier University. I have taught world history and U.S. history at grade levels 6-12, sociology and honors history and sociology at grade levels 9-12. I have a passion for history. I feel history is the only subject that changes daily if not minute by minute.
I have been coaching baseball for over 25 years and have coached levels bronco, pinto, pony, Babe Ruth, ages 8-50 years old. I am also an IHSA certified umpire of five years. I am a certified social sciences teacher and have coached many sports including basketball, volleyball, and tennis. I have been teaching, tutoring, mentoring and coaching children and adults for over thirty years. I hold a bachelors degree from St. Xavier University and have five children and two grandchildren of my own. I love being able to share my knowledge and passion for all subjects and sports!
I have been coaching, tutoring, mentoring and teaching children and adults for over thirty years. I have coached many sports including basketball, baseball, volleyball and tennis for boys and girls. I attained a Bachelors Degree in Social Sciences from St. Xavier University, am a certified teacher in Illinois and have taught many subjects including math, social studies, geography, sociology, English literature, reading, English composition, religion, spelling, and P.E. I have five children and two grandchildren of my own and I love to share my knowledge and passion for all subjects and sports.
I have taught math, geometry, prealgebra, and algebra in grades 5-10 and am well versed in the strategies of helping a student be successful with a full understanding of mathematical concepts. That being said I also feel that is important that a student trust and be at ease with a teacher to truly forge ahead in any subject. All children can learn!
I have taught Geography at grade levels 6-12. I have a passion for the social sciences because I feel it is the people of the world and their environment that give spice to life and living!
I have taught math, prealgebra and algebra at levels 3-10. I feel it is so important to confirm the students' complete understanding of basic math concepts in order for them to master the higher level skills. Many times this fact eludes many teachers who are busy with other students or who are pressured to move ahead while some students get left behind. That is where we, as a team, can get your little one on track!
I have taught reading at many levels including grades 4-9 and literature at grade levels 6-10. I believe reading is the most essential academic skill an individual can possess. I struggled with reading when I was a child and young adult and empathize with those who struggle now. Patience and practice are the keys.
I have been teaching/tutoring/mentoring/coaching children, young adults and adults for over thirty years. I have a passion for teaching and knowledge and have perfected the skills for learning over a wonderful career of helping students achieve their goals.
