I am an experienced teacher with an extensive and diverse background. Since beginning teaching in the late 80s, I have taught elementary, middle, high school and college students. I have learned as much from my students as they have from me and my repertoire of strategies, methods, materials, and adaptations reflects that.
I am especially familiar with Special Education students grades 5-12, SAT/ACT prep, developmental college students, and university upperclassmen. In addition to academic acumen, I am attuned to the emotional and social needs of students and know when to change delivery modes/topics/activities.
I love to have fun teaching so I use games, current events, and my sense of humor frequently. Technology will be integrated into most lessons and is a great way for students to hone skills on their own.
At this point in my life I would like to tutor because I know so many kids are struggling in school. While employed at two different colleges, I have seen the blank spots in basic writing and comprehension skills. I have tutored in the past and loved it - seeing a student progress is priceless.
I am passionate about everything I do, and am ready to go!
