I am an experienced tutor of elementary and high school students and adults with expertise in subjects including, but not limited to, reading, math, science, and history. I have two master's degrees and have been been an elementary teacher for eight years. I have always had a love and passion for teaching and education and I strive to share that with my students. I derive great satisfaction when students tell me they succeeded because of my help. I am patient and understanding with my students, knowing that learning can be frustrating and doesn't always come easy. I want to help my students feel confident in their academic abilities. I have always been willing to put in extra time with my students and am available by cell phone to answer questions even after the session is over. In addition to my experience with many elementary and high school subjects I have extensive experience in college level data analysis and statistics. I have also taught computer skills including the use of various software packages such as Word and Excel to adults in continuing education programs.
I use various learning techniques geared to the individual needs of the student. The learning techniques I employ are fun and interactive and ensure that the student learns and understands the subject matter and not just memorizes it. This is important because students will remember the information longer through understanding rather than memorization. All the work I do with my students is focused on their day-to-day and long-term success in the classroom and success on their required tests.
