Welcome!

I know that it can be difficult to say you need a tutor, but it is the best gift you can give yourself. My job is to give you the tools and confidence to be successful in any subject. Your job is to listen and be willing to do the work. I believe that we can make that happen.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Sign Language Interpreting and a Master's Degree in Curriculum, Instruction, and Technology. I am a level 2 certified educator in the areas of Elementary Education grades K-6, Special Education grades N-12, and Mid-level English grades 7-9. I have worked in various areas and schools in the Central Pennsylvania region. I have taught 4th and 5th grade, Middle School Learning Support, 7th grade English, Deaf Education at the High School level, Emotional Support at the Middle and High School Level, and currently I am in a position where I teach every grade and every subject needed for the students I serve. In addition to my teaching credentials, I worked as a Sign Language Interpreter for many years in the area as well.

I truly love what I do! At one time in my life I needed a tutor myself. It empowered me and gave me skills that I needed to be able to go to college and feel good about myself. I hope you have the same outlook on what you need and how you can help yourself. It is a step in the right direction, and you have to keep putting one foot in front of the other and you will reach your destination.

Good Luck in Your Endeavors!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a level II certification in Elementary Education. I have worked in various elementary grades for the past 9 years, and continue to do so today. I also have tutored in elementary grades as well.

Praxis

I am a certified educator with many years of experience. I have taken the Praxis test in various areas and have passed them at each level. I also have helped teachers to enhance their skills and knowledge in passing the Praxis. Therefore, I have the experience and knowledge to be able to teach the concepts needed to pass this test effectively.

Sign Language

I hold a bachelor's degree in Sign Language Interpretation, as well as a minor in Deaf Education. I taught Deaf Education at the high school level for 3 years. I continue at times to interpret in settings for individuals.

Special Needs

I currently hold a level II certification in Special Education. I have taught various areas of Special Education ranging from, Learning Support, Emotional Support, Deaf and Hard of Hearing, IDD, Visually Impaired, and Autism Spectrum Disorders. I continue to teach in the area of Special Education in a hospital setting under Other Health Impairment.

Study Skills

During my 10 years of teaching I have taught study skills in every class I have taught. It is a valuable life lesson on how to be productive with a heavy work load. I teach the importance of time management skills, how to organize ones subjects that need to be studied, and the importance of having an agenda, and to follow it! Also, the use of mnemonic devices for math, and context clues for vocabulary in reading practice is essential. When teaching just a few of the strategies named, which there are many more, consistency is the key to the success of the student.
