I have been working in the Kalamazoo area as a substitute teacher for nearly ten years. I enjoy working with youths of all ages.
While I specialize in math and science, I am also a fairly accomplished writer. I have taught 1st grade math through 12th grade calculus, however I did not advance much beyond Calculus 2. I am fairly comfortable with single variable differentiation and integration, but my knowledge of multi-variable differential equations is limited.
I feel comfortable teaching subject matters such as physics and earth science, but I also can teach grammar and writing.
Typically when I teach and tutor, I strive to instill independence in the students that I am working with. There is an old saying, "If you give a student the answers he needs, he'll learn and thrive for a day. If you guide a student through the process of FINDING the answers for himself, he'll learn and thrive for a lifetime."
I would be happy to arrange an appointment with your son or daughter to help him or her become a more successful student.
Thank you for your consideration.
