I have been teaching high school for 30 years in a variety of subjects. I love the ability to help others gain the knowledge they need to move forward and then make use of that knowledge. I have taught keyboarding, computer applications, basic math and the Bible. In the past fie years, the school that I work at has had an influx of international students. I have been given a new opportunity to teach these students. In that time I have been challenged to learn to teach students a subject as well as how to improve on their English skills. I was so inspired to learn more teaching methods that last year I went to school to get a TESOL certificate.
As a graduate of Biola University I was trained in teaching methods, but what really has prepared me to tutor is my experience. I comprehend the need to encourage and motivate as well as necessity for accountability. I believe teaching is our chance to give back to others. As I get closer to retirement I am hoping that tutoring will be an alternative to working full time. The thought of sitting home and doing nothing just does not appeal to me. Contact me and let's give it a go.

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.
I am Tesol certified and have several years teaching international students.
