I have more than 9 years experience teaching in urban elementary and middle school settings. This includes time spent as a classroom teacher teaching all subject areas: Math, Reading, Writing, Science, and Social Studies. I have also spent many years teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) and Computer Science. Additionally, I have taught English classes abroad, often creating my own curriculum to meet the needs of my students. I have also taught Children's Yoga in after-school programs and local community centers, and frequently incorporate yoga and mindfulness meditations into my daily lessons. Students need to stay focused and find their inner peace, too! I have also tutored adults in everything from ESL to GED preparation.
I like to get to know a student's academic background and interests as we begin our tutoring sessions. Previous test scores and other assessments are important, but portfolio work and a student's personal input are equally important. Once the area of weakness is clearly identified, I work to focus not only on the target area, but also to enhance the student's strengths in related areas. I like to address the whole student, not just the weakness. We will work together to create the best plan of action for you, the student.
