I began my career in 1989 on the university level teaching Freshman Composition and tutoring in the on-campus Writing Lab at Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas. I have taught English language and literature on all levels from seventh grade to sophomores in college. I have adapted several independent study courses for students with special needs.
My first effort in a tutoring situation is to establish a student's self-confidence. My greatest joy is in convincing students that they are much brighter than they might expect. The greatest obstacle most students face is to overcome past negative academic experiences. I conduct confidence-building exercises in every tutoring session.
WyzAnt students are eligible for free bonus materials that I have produced over the years. For example, I offer free study guides for obtaining the Kansas Driver's License Learner's Permit. I am willing to produce a variety of study guides per student request.
