I am a former special education teacher from Arizona who moved to this area in 1998. I have taught high school special education language arts, middle school math and language arts, and high school regular language arts, as well as tutored college learning disabled/ADD/ADHD students in a variety of subjects as part of a University program.

I usually talk to the student and/or the parents to find out just what the needs of the student are, then talk with them about how best to accomplish the student's goals during tutoring. Every student is different, so I try to match the methods to the student's needs and learning style.

I have been working as a tutor with students in the University environment for the last twelve years, and enjoy helping students work through difficulties they are having. It gives me a real sense of accomplishment to know that with my help a student has successfully mastered the requirements of a class. I also think it helps keep me thinking, myself, and I feel more connected to the world at large by my involvement with the younger generations.

Approved subjects

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.

Linear Algebra

While tutoring college freshmen in the university to which I am connected, I have tutored Linear Algebra many times in the past twelve years; it is my favorite topic in math. I have a B. A. in math from Centre College, also.

Praxis

I have worked with several students here in the HELP Center who needed to pass the Praxis in order to continue with their education courses at Marshall; I took it myself back in 2002, or so, just so I would have an idea of what it required, and passed both sections with no problem.
I have taught language arts and math to students in middle school and high school, as well as tutored college students in these subjects, as well as other subjects. I can only think of one student who worked with me and did not pass the Praxis, and he was a young man who learned English as his second language a few years before taking the test.
