I worked as a teacher in Dartmouth Public Schools for 20 years, teaching all academic subjects. I am certified to teach at all levels. I have had experience in tutoring both Language Arts and Mathematics as well. I am certified and qualified to teach any student at any level.
I consider myself to be a creative and innovative teacher with an ability to assess students individual strengths and needs and focus lesson plans on meeting those needs.
I was particularly patient and understanding when "students didn't understand" and helped them find the way. I believe in teaching not only the basics, but the process of learning.
I maintain a positive focus on learning and try to communicate an appreciation and love of learning to my students. I also try to focus on the whole student and entire process of learning as opposed to teaching just the basic subject.
To conclude, I was an English-Education Major with a Minor in Social Sciences from the University of Rhode Island. I taught 20 years at the Middle School level, student taught at Pilgrim High School in Warwick Rhode Island, and even coached high school basketball. I also have a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Bridgewater State College. This adds up to a versatile and flexible educator, familiar with working with all students at all levels.
