During my time in the teaching profession, I have found that I enjoy the versatility of combining multiple academic disciplines. I am a very creative person and enjoy the opportunity to incorporate my creativity into the lessons that I teach. Because I am a creative thinker, having multiple class contents that I can think through and come up with a creative and new way to effectively teach it is an exciting challenge for me. I have taught multiple classes in middle and high school. In the middle school, I taught Basic Math, College Prep and Honors Pre-Algebra, Honors Biology (8th grade), 7th and 8th grade General Science, English, Study Skills,and Physical Education. In the high school, I taught College Prep Algebra 1, College Prep Psychology, and AP Psychology.

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

I have many years experience tutoring elementary students in all subjects. I have tutored 3rd grade through 6th grade math, reading comprehension, science, history, and study skills. When I tutor, I make sure to devote as much time as the student needs so they may master each lesson. I make sure to take time to explain every little detail so the student can have confidence that once I leave they still know how to complete the lesson. (ex: Teaching about Place Value - I talk about each individual place value, where each belongs when looking at numbers as a whole, how each are said, why they matter, etc.)

ADHD

I have many years experience teaching and tutoring students with ADD/ADHD. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies/Psychology and have taken many classes on the subject of ADD/ADHD. Many of my past students have had to deal with their ADD/ADHD in a classroom setting. I as their teacher had to make sure that they were focused and learning the material. I have worked one on one with students who struggle with ADD/ADHD and have had many successes. One student had trouble taking notes from the board and writing them in his notebook. I was able to teach him to hear certain words while still being focused on the lesson as a whole and write down only the important information. I have also tutored students who forget something 5 minutes after it has been explained. With them, I was able to increase their retention span and enable them to grasp the information and learn it before diverting their attention to something more interesting.

Very pleased!

My child started eighth grade coming off of a nearly-failing performance in math. During the first 9 weeks of the new school year, the combination of a new teacher at school, the help of Maggie B, and my child's individual effort brought the grade up to a very solid B (89). My child's very comfortable with Maggie B. and she does a great job of making principles and concepts understandable. We would definitely recommend her!

Awesome tutor!

My daughter had her first session with Maggie yesterday. My daughter said in that 1 hr she helped her tremendously! We are definitely keeping her.

Dawn, 6 lessons with Maggie

So far so good!!!

Great tutor so far. We have had one tutor session with Maggie and are scheduled for more. My 6th grade daughter says that Maggie makes learning Math and Reading fun. My daughter absolutely loves her and can't wait for the next session. We are already seeing an improvement on how our daughter is approaching the learning process of her schoolwork.

Wonderful 1st session!

Maggie was confident and connected with my children immediately. I found her to be energetic, flexible and open to ideas. I look forward to entrusting my children to future sessions with Maggie!
