I am a patient and kind person, who likes to encourage students to think for themselves. I will help them by giving clues, and explaining and instructing until they understand the concepts. I will not give them the answers, but rather give them the time, instruction, and examples to sort out how to do the work. I love learning new things, and hope to pass on that love of learning on to my students. My hobbies include reading novels, knitting, chatting with friends and photography and music. I am a people person, and love nurturing and praising success and good effort. I am new to the field of tutoring, however, I have volunteered in schools ever since my boys were in Kindergarten. Now, they are both in high school and I still help them with their school work as needed. I volunteered tutoring in college and high school, mostly in math. I have a BA degree in Elementary Education with my focus area in Math and Science, and I minored in music. I was a substitute teacher for K-6 grades for 2 years, and was a preschool teacher for one year. Then, I became a stay-at-home mom for the most part. I would like to get back into teaching and tutoring. I work best one-on-one with students, rather than with a large class.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I graduated from an accredited Bible college (Northwest University) in 1992. I have always loved the Bible. Also, I took a class in high school called "The Bible as Literature".

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a B.A. degree in Elementary Education as of May 1992 from Northwest University. I was a substitute teacher in grades K-6 in Kitsap County from September 1992 through June 1994. I volunteered at my sons' elementary schools from 2002 through 2008.

Elementary Math

I am qualified to teach elementary math because I have a B.A. degree in Elementary Education with my focus area in math/science. Math has always been my best subject in school. Also, I have some experience in tutoring math. I'm tutoring a 5th grade student in math at this present time. I did a little math tutoring while I was in college also. I like making learning math fun.

General Music

I love music, and almost majored in music in college. After my Junior year, I changed majors to Elementary Education. We learned how to teach a basic music class to elementary students.

Grammar

Grammar was one of my best subjects in school. I have a degree in Elementary Education from Northwest University. I love helping students learn new things, and grammar is something that is essential.

Phonics

I have a B.A. degree in Elementary Education, and we studied the phonics method in college for teaching students how to read. I used phonics with my own children who are now in high school. I believe phonics is a very effective method for helping children learn to read.

Prealgebra

Math was my best subject in both high school and college. I tutored math in college. My major was Elementary Education with a focus area of math/science.

Reading

I have a degree in Elementary Education from Northwest University. I did my student teaching with a first grade class, and helping the students learn to read was priority. I have also helped my own sons with practicing their reading skills as they were growing up. I was a substitute teacher in grades K-5, and reading is certainly a priority in those grades.

Study Skills

I learned study skills in high school and college. I graduated from high school with a grade point average of 3.6 and was on the honor roll many times over. I graduated from Northwest University with a GPA of 3.2. My major was in Elementary Education. I went on to take more classes in Childhood Development to become a preschool teacher. I helped my own sons with their study skills also. My oldest is graduating high school this year and going through Running Start taking college classes. Both of my sons are doing quite well in school.

Violin

I started playing the violin when I was in 4th grade over 30 years ago. I excelled in high school and auditioned to be in the "Strolling Strings" and was accepted. I went on to play in college for one year in a traveling group. I tried out tutoring and had one violin student who quit shortly after starting, but I'd like to try again.
