Having always been drawn to opportunities that help others learn and make a significant difference in the quality of their lives, it is neither a surprise nor an accident that I am a teacher. My experience includes teaching English and social studies at a middle school, test preparation at a prominent learning center, and for the past six years I have been a GED instructor, teaching basic and academic skills in all five subjects of the exam.

As of January 1st, 2014, the GED exam is going to change dramatically. Subject material, scoring, administering of tests, and cost will all be affected. Previous test scores may no longer be considered valid. Consequently, there is a decided push to get this valued credential as soon as possible. I can help. I have successfully helped many individuals achieve their goal of attaining the GED diploma. My success rate is nearly double that of the national average.

But I am more than a GED teacher, I am a visionary. Certain skills are necessary. The importance of reading comprehension, possessing a clear and strong understanding of math, the ability to speak and write well, cannot be overly emphasized. Time spent learning is never, ever wasted. Education holds the key to success. I would like to have the opportunity to assist in that success, your success.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary Math

As an experienced SAT and GED instructor and a mother of two, I realize it's important to be able to understand and explain the basics of elementary math in order to continue to learn and understand more complicated mathematics. Many of us suffer with math anxiety. This anxiety can be lessened with patience, understanding the problem, and having the confidence to be able to find a solution to the problem. I can help your child. I'm not able to promise he or she will love the subject, but I can help your child to do better in math.

GED

I have been a GED instructor for the past six years with a successful completion rate that surpasses the national average. I have taught all five subjects and am familiar with the material, scoring, and test-taking strategies needed to pass this difficult exam.

Grammar

It is important to be able to speak and write well. Understanding the rules of grammar helps you to do this. Grammar is not a boring, outdated section of English class, at least it shouldn't be. I have been a middle school English teacher and can help you with this subject.
