Hey, I'm Mike and I really enjoy teaching and working with children. I love the moment for children when the "lightbulb" goes on and something that was once challenging becomes something that is understood and attainable. I believe that a child's self esteem and overall confidence are intricately tied into his or her feelings of academic success, but when learning becomes a challenge, a child's self-confidence deteriorates quickly. During my 16 years of teaching and tutoring elementary students, I have found that my personal creativity, energy, excitement and patience have helped motivate students about learning, even when the material is challenging and difficult to understand. I have taught all academic subjects in grades 1-5, however I have taught 5th grade math exclusively for 6 years and am currently a math interventionist. I look forward to helping your child to find success again.
