I enjoy helping kids to improve their reading skills, writing skills, grammar skills and spelling skills. I have typically taught kids from grades 7-12. My undergraduate degree is a B.S. in English, and my graduate degree is an M.S. degree in Counseling. Recently I finished a Multisensory Instruction course which certifies me to teach students who have one or more specific language disabilities.
Kids who have learning needs have become a specialty of mine. Helping kids learn skills they have always struggled with is something I thoroughly enjoy doing. I work in an alternative education center where students who have learning differences come to learn concepts they haven't been able to grasp in a traditional school setting. They don't want to be there initially, but in the end beg us to keep them there. We create a disciplined, yet enjoyable atmosphere where they become motivated and actively engage in their learning process. Their parents become extremely appreciative that their kids have finally found a learning situation in which they thrive and succeed. Our students discover what their skills are, form goals, and ultimately work hard to achieve them.
