Dear potential student / family,
I am hoping that my competent knowledge and strengths shown in the Math and Language Arts (and others) will be an asset to You! My teaching experience comes from the following: homeschooling my son for several years as well as teaching and training in both my local church and my current job with a well known medical insurance company. I was also a trainer in the scouting organization which required that I take information and develop a training curriculum for both students and adults. As a homeschool teacher, we have tried a variety of educational tools for learning, from computers, to standard books, to worksheets and games. My son is currently a sophomore in high school. At church, I am a Sunday school teacher and co-leader of our women's ministry. I have spent several years, almost 15 really, teaching children in one aspect or another. Thinking of creative ways to memorize is one of the things I like best. We put many of our scriptures to music for just that reason, for both children and adults.
I love learning! And it should be fun! I also love helping others to learn. As a student, I strove to do my personal best. As a tutor, that's what I would want to encourage in others. Being the best is not nearly as important as doing your best. My approach to tutoring is simply this: Find our where you are and where you want to be. Find a way to get you there with as much enjoyment as possible. There are many different approaches to learning, what is yours? Learning is just part of life, it really never ends. It is much easier to teach someone who has a heart for learning. Being a good teacher isn't so much about how much you know, but how well you are able to explain something to someone else and have them "get it"...we all strive for the "light bulb" moment when it just clicks!
I'm currently available most Monday, Thursday and Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sunday afternoons.
I'd consider it a privilege to visit with you to see how I might help you in your area of need. Sometimes it just takes a little boost to get back on track and on your way to a higher education. Patience, creativity, and skills...it's a winning combination! Thanks for your consideration!
