I took some time off of work to attend to the needs of my growing children. Over the years, I have developed a passion for Math helping my children all through their school years. Since the past 4 years, I have been substituting in Ann Arbor Public schools for Pre-Algebra and other subjects as needed.While working my students, my goal is to understand their weaknesses and help them overcome these so that they can move on to the next level with confidence.

I have studied Chinese for 7 years, and have amassed a wide array of knowledge of the Chinese language. I have worked with exchange students, Chinese principals from Shanghai, and international students at Gettysburg College, my school. I have tutored many of my friends through class in Chinese, and have helped them to succeed, through explanation and examples. I also put heavy emphasis on speaking the language, as it is most critical to fluency. I love to spread the Chinese language to others, and feel my knowledge would help those wanting to learn the language.

Autism runs a spectrum. I have had many years experience with students at either end of the spectrum and everywhere in between. Knowing the student, assessing the individual needs, and implementing an appropriate program and tutoring sessions comes quite naturally to me. Life skills and appropriate socialization skills are often more important than any subject content.
