Nothing is more rewarding than watching a student understand a new concept after investing hours of hard work. I love learning new subjects because it hones my skills as a teacher, tutor and mentor. Successful tutoring is about helping the student develop skills. I specialize in English and math for success at school. Whether a student and I are working on multiplying fractions, answering an essay question or creating a plan of action to prepare for an upcoming exam, I create learning environments that challenge, but do not overwhelm the student.
Try this study skill guaranteed to work: Practice learning new material in short bursts. You will absorb more from ten 10-minute practice/study sessions than you will from one 100-minute session.
To ensure student success, I assign homework designed to help them practice what we worked on in our tutoring session. I provide periodic progress reports and feedback.
I earned my MA with High Honors from the William Allen White School of Journalism, U Kansas, I am CELTA certified to teach English as a second language, I am a published writer and an award-winning independent film producer.
Professionally I have taught all levels from kindergarten to university undergraduates. I have been a resident artist in schools all over the US with some of my students winning awards for their creative work.
I am passionate about the natural world and about writing non-fiction and fiction.
I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your learning goals.
