I am person who later in life, returned to college to get a teaching certificate. I finished all the requirements this spring, and my teaching certificate came in June 2011. I have worked as a substitute teacher part time for a couple of years. That helped me to realize that I enjoy learning and helping others learn. Years ago I tutored one adult who was completing high school through Adult Education, and I have tutored elementary age students in improving their reading skills.
I try to focus on being encouraging in what people already know, along with helping them to learn more. I believe that education involves learning information, along with learning how to use that information in practical ways. Learning should involve maturing in all areas of life.I have learned to deal with and overcome difficulties in my life, and want to help others know that they can get better/smarter.
My best subjects are the social sciences, but I can also help with reading/writing skills, and math up through algebra. Learning should be fun and I am willing to try creative approaches to make it successful.
