Hello there! I have had a varied and interesting background. I taught high school English for twenty years. Before entering my second career as a Learning Skills Specialist, I was certified in the Orton Gillingham approach to teaching reading.
I have tutored home-bound students and foreign students. My last job was teaching ESL in a private international school. During my teaching and tutoring career, I taught all levels and enjoyed the challenges of the very gifted and those in need of basic skills. I believe the best way to be a successful tutor is through motivation. Students must be feel that they can learn. In addition, they must take responsibility for their own growth with supportive guidance. Of course, they should find the process enjoyable and worthwhile. I hope I have the opportunity to work with you and watch you grow.
