I love teaching! My 29 years' experience teaching and mentoring students of all ages gives me a well rounded view of how students learn. It is my belief that it's not how many different things you can teach but how many different ways you can teach one thing. I have been tutoring for as long as I have been teaching. My tutoring includes online and blended learning. My Master's degree is in Instructional Technology and I prefer online tutoring. There is a wealth of information on the internet for students to take advantage of in making students independent learners. There are unlimited Web 2.0 tools for us to use to make your tutoring a successful and enjoyable experience for you.

Throughout my teaching career I have published the school newsletter "The Dolphin Monthly." As a co-founder for a non-profit organization, I have used MS Publisher to create documents, fliers, banner, business cards, calendars, etc. to advertise our 501c3 organization. I also used this publishing tool to create my personal portfolio.
