I have recently retired from teaching after having taught for 35+ years in the same school district. I worked with students with learning problems so I am very aware as how to best help children learn in a variety of ways. I enjoy working with children in kindergarten through 5th grade in reading, spelling or grammar as well as the math area. I have taught not only special education
students but regular education students as well. I have tutored during the summer also and taught a variety of summer school classes to children in kindergarten through 5th grade.
I received a bachelors degree from the University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh with a dual certification of regular education k-5 and special education k- 12. I also earned a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2001 at National Louis University in Illinois.
I feel tutoring in a 1 on 1 setting 2 to 3 times a week is an optimal way to help students who are struggling in certain areas. I am able to hone in on where the student's needs may be and focus on their strengths while remediating them. I feel if the parent/child seeks help early enough it is much easier to narrow the gap that exists. The student may need additional practice between sessions to ensure that mastery is achieved. Because of my background in teaching for many years, I know best practices for learning material. My experience in working with students with a wide variety of labels has given me expertise in dealing with children with a variety of needs.

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.
