Northern Illinois University (Elem. Education)
National Louis University (Master's)
I have been in education for over 25 years, with the last 14 years devoted to Gifted Education. I have a B.S. degree from NIU, a M. ED. from National Louis University, a concentration of Math and Science in undergraduate studies, and graduate hours in Gifted Education. I've only tutored one student privately many years ago. I started working with him in third/fourth grade, and continued until he started high school. I established a terrific rapport with him and his family, and was pleased with his success. I am an avid reader, and have taught Shakespeare to middle school students. Math doesn't scare me, and I try to make math enjoyable. We can conquer it together!

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.
My 25+ year teaching experience has been mainly focused in the elementary grades, with the last fourteen years teaching gifted education. The span of content areas in the elementary grades interest me, and I have a vast experience bank to tap into. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with young children, and enjoy enriching their exposure to new topics. I also can use this experience to help students struggling with certain areas by reteaching the concept in a different manner to achieve mastery.
