I have over ten years of teaching experience, a Bachelors degree in English, a minor in Psychology, and a Masters degree in Education with a specialization in Reading. My certifications for South Carolina are current for Prekindergarten to Eighth grades. I am a certified yoga instructor who teaches students from seventh grades to mature adult.

I coach, tutor and facilitate instruction for students from kindergarten to college. My most recent middle level classroom experience, in Philadelphia and in South Carolina over the last 10 years, has giving me a diverse bases for teaching the whole person through attention to English (language arts, reading and writing), character education, and yoga. My students meet today’s challenges and find success.

I look forward to providing a service that will meet your needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Common Core

I have been teaching the Common Core for English Language Arts for the last three years. As a teacher for 11 years, I am aware of interactive-learning strategies that assist students of many different levels and learning styles. Further, with my undergraduate work in English and Psychology and my graduate work in Education, I am qualified to facilitate the learning of English as well as other associated coursework.

Reading

I have a Master's in education with a specialization in reading.

Study Skills

As a teacher for 11 years with a Masters in Education, I understand the importance of study skills to attain and retain pertinent information. Students who struggle need strategy. If the study skills a student utilizes are not aligned with the content, studying for mastery can become a waste of time and intensely frustrating.

Writing

I am a writer working on the completion of a book. I care about writing that conveys a clear message to the reader. As a middle years English teacher for 11 years, I have assisted advanced and struggling writers. I have edited manuscripts from books to cover letters, resumes, bios and websites as well.

Yoga

I am a certified yoga instructor willing to provide assistance to students in need of focus and ease within the learning process. As a teacher for 11 years, I have incorporated these ideas into the classroom and seen a marked difference in my students' ability and interaction with the coursework as a result of their internal, personal practice. The use of yoga, even in small doses, to address mental focus and confidence show a marked difference in performance.
