I have a passion for learning and for teaching. I have completed 25 years of home educating my 6 children. It was a joy to come alongside my children and teach them throughout their school years, giving them a solid foundation for success in college and various vocations. I have tutored other students in grades 4-12 over the last several years. I have helped some of these children overcome academic challenges which caused them to be under grade level by 2-4 years, but they are now on or near grade level in most subjects.
My teaching experience is broad. In addition to academic subjects, I have taught private piano lessons and instructed American Red Cross CPR and childbirth classes.
I find great fulfillment in teaching, especially one-on-one or in small groups where I can assess the learner and help him to master troublesome material or difficult skills. I work to carefully evaluate why a student is having difficulty and then implement a plan drawing on a variety of methods and resources to assist the student to overcome the problem.
I take the responsibilities of a tutor seriously and respect the investment of time and money which is made by students and their parents. I am dependable and professional in my appearance and conduct, yet I teach with an attitude of encouragement and appreciation for a student's efforts.
