My philosophy includes the idea that if we stop learning, we stop growing. My enthusiasm for learning tends to rub off on my students, and that is exciting in itself!
A strong background in math and sciences gave me the opportunity to have a successful year in medical school; however, I left for family reasons. The experience was very enlightening. I learned a lot about myself, confidence, and how that can affect your mindset about your own potential.
I have two boys, ages 20 and 21, both in college. My youngest wrote to me the other day stating that I would really like his English teacher, and that we are a lot alike- down to earth with our own way. He feels that we will be best friends once we meet, and he is enjoying her class. I took that as a compliment because I was the classroom teacher to my own sons as well in the 6th grade.
I have had the opportunity to tutor many students on all different levels, and continue to be asked to tutor teachers' own children. They have witnessed my patience and grace, and want that for their children. I teach from the heart.
As part of my career as an elementary teacher, I taught third grade for four years and sixth grade for six years. I loved the diversity in their personalities as well as their maturity levels. Working one-on-one with a student is a privilege that I miss. I am looking forward to the opportunity to build a working relationship with these students.
I have had the opportunity to tutor students from elementary through college level.
Having been blessed with the ability to excel academically, I was always eager to help those around me in school. I learned to be a good tutor as a student. I also became a teacher because the importance of education is high on my list. The rewards are endless when helping others to discover the best way to approach school, studying, and learning.
Let's learn how to be organized, learn how to study, and how you best learn. What is best for the individual is imperative to discover, and I believe we can do this together.
I have helped many, including a gentleman struggling with college math. I helped him learn how to study, helped with his confidence, and he went on to be a doctor. He has often credited me for helping in his accomplishment.
I was lucky enough to grow up with a pool; in-ground 20 feet by 50 feet. I swam and/or dove in that pool daily from the day we opened it in the beginning of May through its closing at the end of September. I took swim lessons at our local beach every year. I was a certified first aid instructor and a certified water safety instructor. I have taught swim lessons to many people, from infants to elders.
