Dear Potential Student,

I have been tutoring, teaching and working with all types of students for many years.

I enjoy the one on one experience, as well as small groups. Getting to know you and understand your strengths are a priority with me. I try to find ways to make things easier to understand and teach to your strengths. For instance if you like using the computer for learning, we will try to find ways for you to learn the subject matter by using educational tools via the computer. I like a casual, comfortable setting with minimal distractions. I am a casual person, I don't give up easily and I try to find different ways to approach learning. I use a variety of tools and styles. I believe anyone can learn anything with enough will power and perseverance. Snacks are always good during a tutoring session! As an experienced tutor, I can help you succeed.

I am now in my second year of Home Schooling a student.

I am a volunteer tutor for Waukesha Literacy Council

I would like to address the one star rating that appears on my profile. I was tutoring a student who I felt needed more intense instruction- more than 2 times a week- that at the time I could not handle. I recommended to the parent that she get someone who could offer more time. The parent was offended by my suggestion that her child needed more intense instruction, thus the one star rating.

I have always had nothing but the best reviews in every school or company that I have worked for.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Dear Student,
I have been a teacher for many years. I like to use computers to teach as well as any method to help make a subject more clear. I am a casual, informal, relaxed type of person. I will probably show up at your house wearing blue jeans and with munchies! I also like to play learning games if it helps you to understand the subject. I can help you, and you will get it!

General Computer

I use the computer on a daily basis. I am skilled at most Microsoft applications including Word, Power Point, Excel and e-mail. I also have taken a web technology course. I use the web daily and have a profile on Facebook.

Phonics

Phonics is an essential part of learning to read. I have taken several post graduate classes pertaining to phonics and reading. Excellent reading skills come from a whole language approach which includes sight words, phonics and comprehension. They come as a package. You need skills in each of those areas in order to read well.

Study Skills

As a tutor at Bryant and Stratton College I helped to develop and give workshops on study, memorization and test taking skills.

Studying is critical for learning and retaining, and there are specific methods to help yourself study and learn. If you need help in studying and test taking, contact me and I can help you out with some specific techniques.

Writing

I have excellent written communication skills. I was a tutor at Bryant and Stratton College for 3 years. I tutored in AP Writing, along with English, Computers and Math. I have 25 years' teaching and tutoring experience in working with 1st-grade through high school and college students. For the last 2 years I home-schooled a middle school student striving for her H.S. diploma.
