I am a strong teacher of English for a variety of reasons. I have worked with middle school students as well as high school and am certified in English in both levels. I have a very good understanding of grammar and significant experience with literature. I have experience in motivating students. I enjoy working with students of all ages.
I am certified to work with Elementary students in all general subjects and math.
I also have a background in Art. I taught Art to elementary and middle school students for several years. I do my own artwork and continue to study art for my own improvement.
My first priority in working with students is to establish a rapport. Then, I help the student to understand what they are being assigned in classes and how to approach completing assignments. My goal is to train the student to learn work independently using simple steps to understanding. When students are able to complete assignments in the subject area which challenges them, I would help them by developing supplementary assignments and work to achieve higher grades in all subject areas.
In my college teaching, I also taught study skills and this knowledge of how to approach learning and test taking can be helpful in all subject areas. In addition, I have helped my own three children pursue and complete college degrees and go on to successful careers.
