I am a Pennsylvania certified teacher and I am also certified to teach German (K-12). My goal as your child's tutor is to help them gain confidence and use creative and critical thinking skills. I believe in positive reinforcement and that every child has the ability to succeed, given the appropriate tools and a proper learning environment. I have experience tutoring children and enjoy trying various learning approaches to discover what works best for each individual child. I feel that it is very important for students to continue learning over the summer break - it gives them a distinct advantage when school begins again in the Fall. I look forward to working with your child and can assure you that he/she will have my full dedication to help them achieve and progress academically. I am conscientious, reliable and flexible and take pride in helping students achieve their academic goals.
I also have experience tutoring ESL to adults.
I have the following up-to-date clearances required by the state of Pennsylvania for teachers: Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance, Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check and FBI Clearance.
As a side note, I have two sons; a college graduate and the other, a college freshman. I was always very involved in their schools as a parent, teacher's aide and volunteer. I also have experience as a Cub Scout Den Leader, camp counselor, committee chairperson and Sunday School teacher.
Thank you for your consideration of my credentials and I look forward to hearing from you.
