I graduated from Muskingum College as the salutatorian of my class and with degrees in English and Spanish and additional certification in special education. I have a master's degree from Bowling Green State University in the teaching of gifted and talented students. I have been teaching high school English and Spanish for 27 years, the last 24 of them at a suburban school in the Toledo area. I have been recognized by the Toledo Blade as a teacher of the month and was nominated for Teacher of the Year by BCSN. I love sharing my enthusiasm for reading and writing in both English and Spanish with my students. In addition to teaching, I also advise many student groups such as student council, National Honor Society, and Link Crew.

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.

Study Skills

I have been teaching high school English, Spanish and reading for 27 years. In addition, I coordinate a freshman transition program that provides study skills lessons for 9th graders. I teach the junior and senior mentors in the program how to present the study skills lessons to their freshman homerooms. Throughout my career I have also tutored students before and after school to help them learn how to study. I have found my background in special education to be particularly helpful in these endeavors.
