If you are are searching for a tutor now, you are approaching a very critical moment in your life and are ready for a better experience in the world of education. As a pubic school teacher (all grades) of eleven years, an experienced and successful entrepreneur of 25 years, and possessing an extensive education (Master of Science, Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment - English Education; Bachelor's in Accounting), I am extremely confident that I can assist you or your child in most subject areas.
I currently hold certifications in the areas of English Ed, Elementary Ed, Social Studies Ed, Business Ed, & K-12 Special Ed. I have a total of 11 years' experience as a certified teacher in public education. Nine of those years I was an inclusion teacher (all grade level/all subject areas) and am used to working with a very diverse population of students from the struggling who are trying to pass the SAT to graduate,those who desire to score a higher grades on the ACT (which equals higher college scholarships), the gifted, to those who need assistance to perform at their greatest potential in school. I have worked extensively with students who have a variety of learning disabilities including ADD/ADHD. One advantage of being an inclusion teacher is that I have read the tests aloud to my students, thereby; I have seen the actual content on the tests. I can deliver to you/your child the relevant content required to pass/achieve higher results on these required tests.
I have dedicated my life to help others; I would welcome the chance to help you achieve success. Achievement is just around the corner and I would welcome the opportunity to work one-on-one with you to achieve your goals, just as I have done.
I received a Bachelors of Accountancy graduating with a 3.58 on a 4.00 scale. I was promoted to Internal Auditor of Finance for a local bank before entering the teaching profession.
I am confident that I am more than well-qualified to teach this subject. Understanding the principles of accounting can be confusing; but with a little coaching from using a tutor, you will be proficient in accounting in a short amount of time.
I passed the Praxis exam for special education. I have taught special education (9-12) for one year at Ashland Elementary. I have also taught grades 5-8 special education at Ripley Middle for eight years. I have worked with ADD/ADHD, autism, aspergers, dylexia, and children with emotional disturbance.
An entrepreneur of 25 years of experience and a strong background of Accounting (Bachelors Degree)
I possess a K-8 elementary teaching certificate from the Mississippi Department of Education. I am currently teaching 4th grade in the general education classroom. I possess four years of after school tutoring experience due to a 21st Century Tutoring Grant.
I am highly qualified to teach special education K-12. I passed the required Praxis test in 2006 and have taught special education for eight years. I have worked with and became an advocate for children diagnosed with a variiety of learning disorders including Autism, ADD/ADHD, Specific Learning Disorders, Dyslexia, etc. I have attended numerous workshops utilizing effective strategies to reach this special population. I have implemented (with success) programs designed to assist these children in the General Education Inclusion classroom.
