I have taught middle school English for nine years and am PA certified in English, grades 7-12. I believe that students should be active participants in their own learning, and I enjoy the energy and input of my students. I received my bachelor's degree in Secondary English Education from Baptist Bible College. I also have earned a master's degree in Education, emphasis in English/Communications, from Eastern Mennonite University and Baptist Bible Graduate School. For the past year and a half, I've stepped down from full-time teaching to stay home with my young daughter. This break from teaching has allowed for a more flexible schedule and more time to tutor. My tutoring history includes middle-school through adult learners. I want students to be the best that they can be on a daily basis. I look forward to working with you in the near future!

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.

Bible Studies

I graduated from Baptist Bible College with a Bachelor of Science in Bible. I will be completing my master's degree, Master of Science in Bible, from the same school in August, 2010. I attend Lancaster Evangelical Free Church where I aid 5th grade Sunday School. I am a born-again Christian who believes that the Bible is our guide for life.

ESL/ESOL

During the past six years, I have taught many students in my English class, who are learning English as a second language. I have also taken several graduate classes which have given me strategies to use in aiding English Language Learners. I look forward to helping you learn the English language.

Public Speaking

For the past seven years, I have taught students how to improve their public speaking skills as part of my English curriculum. We have worked on gaining confidence as a speaker, making eye contact, speaking with appropriate diction, and preparing effectively for a speech. We have also employed many strategies to minimize nervousness. I really enjoy helping students to become the best public speakers that they can be. I look forward to working with you!

Soccer

I played soccer throughout middle school, high school, and college. I have also coached middle school and high school soccer. I really enjoy the sport and have spent much of my life playing.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills for the past seven years to middle school students. I enjoy helping students to become highly organized individuals who can effectively manage their time and assignments. I look forward to working with you!
