I have been tutoring since 1979 and have an excellent track record of superior results with students. My philosophy is that every student is capable of being a good student if they find a patient teacher who believes in them more than they believe in themselves. Students need to be encouraged by celebrating their small accomplishments as well as the large ones. I tutor students from private and public schools and I also work with adult learners.
The most rewarding experience I have had in teaching was working in a juvenile detention center where my students came to love history and were quite the debate team. I helped them to gain a sense of pride in themselves and to realize their current station was only a temporary stop on a road to great things. Those young men and women wore "dirty blue" jumpsuits. When it was their time to present before the class, their blue jumpsuits were pulled together as neatly as possible, well groomed hair and smile that registered the confidence of Caesar. I told them the position you take and the presentation you make will transform you into the words you say, and both you and your audience will see you far beyond the clothes you are in.
One of my students is now an assistant manager for a major grocery store chain. Love wrapped up in believing in the seemingly impossible is a recipe for SUCCESS. I am a human resources executive by trade and a special teacher in my heart and spirit.
