I believe that I can best help students by first learning what they already know through pretesting. I then design and implement an individual program that builds on those skills to master the additional skills wanted or required by the student. I believe in supporting, encouraging, and reinforcing students for success including progress toward their goals not yet reached. I have worked since 1969 as an educator at both public schools and colleges with preschool through graduate level students.
In addition to teaching I have a law degree and have successfully worked with students in preparation for college on the SAT and ACT and on the LSAT. I have also successfully worked with remediation and prep for the FCAT; as a Hospital/Homebound teacher (both after and during school), I have worked with students from preschool through 12th grade on all basic core subjects and in study skills, and art.
I have degrees that include ESE and National Board Certification which have given me strengths in being able to individualize and challenge students at multiple levels from remedial to gifted. I am flexible about where and when I meet with students. I have some flexibility in my hourly rate. My students like me; I have a fun approach to learning, and I have knowledge tidbits/"tricks" that makes subjects easier to remember and master. I enjoy working with and seeing students explore new concepts and master them. I encourage questioning and independent thinking and teach students how to support their thoughts with knowledge.
