With more than 15 years of teaching experience, I understand today's learning styles. Helping students understand the big picture of their subject and understanding how they personally learn are the most effective principles to increase any student's success.
I have proven techniques that will increase student's retention and their confidence. With my help, students will increase their understanding of themselves as a learner rather than as seeing themselves as a pawn in the educational "game." I've taught in public school and in the private sector. I've managed classrooms, committees, and faculty. I know how to help your child get ahead.
My specifications are: Study skills, Learning styles, History, Language Arts, basic math and basic science.
I am currently attending Gonzaga University in Spokane WA in the Master's - LMHC/LMFT program. We are currently studying diagnosis and disabilities such as ADD/ADHD among others. Part of our practicum program is to see clients in a supervised setting and help them with their problems, many of which are ADD/ADHD which is becoming a specialty area of mine. I hold a BA in Teaching and a MA in Teaching and have 15 years of experience with children and adults with various learning disabilities.
I coached boys and girls basketball for 5 years at the Jr. High level. I understand and know who to effectively teach the fundamental skills and techniques of basketball to young athletes. I have played basketball in various situations and venues for the last 20 years.
I taught middle school for 14 years in WA state in mostly history and English/language arts and some math; we did teach all subjects at one time or another, reading, science, etc. I have a Masters degree from CWU in Teaching and am pursuing a second in counseling from Gonzaga U. I feel that I am totally capable of helping elementary school aged children with all of their studies and organizational skills especially since I know what they will need to be prepared for in middle school.
I taught middle school for 10 years. Middle school students need various study skills in order to be successful. Knowing how to ask questions; making connections to the material; taking proper notes; making educated guesses and suppositions; etc.
