Hello!

I am an energetic and dedicated educator that has been teaching high school science for nine years. I decided to break up this 'about me' page into two brief sections. First, my core beliefs as an educator. Second, the methods that I use to teach.

* Core Beliefs:

I believe that all of my students (as well as all students) can learn and achieve. I am a firm believer that there are many different types of learning styles and you need to find which ones work for each student. When you find what works, you will be rewarded with the success of your student!

I also believe that each student needs to understand that their teachers are personally invested in their success. I build a trusting relationship and have been very pleased with the success of my students.

* Methods:

Each student is unique. I implement differentiated instruction into each lesson. You have to meet a student on their ability level and then increase their understanding. I use manipulatives (hands on activities), graphic organizers and technology to enhance lessons.

Many of my students have gone onto college and excelled. I would love to assist your child as well!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have been teaching high school for nine years. I have a great deal of experience with students that have been diagnosed with ADD/ ADHD. I use differentiated instruction to ensure that each of my students are learning. If one method I implement doesn't work, I will find one that does. In my experience, many students with ADD/ ADHD and other autism spectrum disorders need someone that is patient, organized, creative and persistent.
