I am a 54 year-old Christian woman who successfully home-schooled her three daughters for 10 years (all subjects through high school) and also home-schooled/tutored two other girls for their 7th and 8th grade years. I have experience tutoring elementary math, high school writing and English literature, biology, algebra, geometry, accounting, anatomy, and U.S. history, as well as all middle school subjects. My specialty is GED test prep. Many of my students have had IEPs or learning challenges. I enjoy discovering their needs and best methods for allowing them to succeed.
Prior to homeschooling, I worked as a public accountant for several years before moving into the corporate world, where I was the general ledger accountant for a multi-million dollar bulk handler of oil, tallow, caustic soda, etc. I then moved into management for an electric utility company for 11 years before settling into home-schooling.
All 3 of my children had different learning styles (visual, auditory, and tactile), and the two other students I home-schooled for 7th and 8th grades both had learning disabilities. In the first year, they went from testing two to four years below grade level to testing above grade level on their CAT tests by the end of the year.
My expertise is in identifying my students' strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles to quickly tailor my lessons to suit their needs. Thus, time is not wasted, and my students stay engaged and enthusiastic.
I have an extensive library of books, curriculum, software, and educational games. We moved 65 book boxes with us recently to our new home. I have a passion for teaching and for children/young people. I would welcome the opportunity to mentor and teach you or your child for success, as well as instill a love of learning. I would be happy to discuss your needs and what I can offer.
