I just underwent a career change having gone back to school at the University of Bridgeport and
received my Masters in Elementary Education with an additional cross-endorsement to teach Social Studies
in Grades 7-12. I am a certified Teacher with the State of Connecticut.
I believe my best categories as a tutor will be strengthening fundamental elementary skills such as math, reading, writing, language arts and science. I have an appreciation for the fact that various kids learn differently.
I have a good manner with my students and I am a very good motivator.
In addition to the ability to teach the fundamental skills to elementary school students I also would be an effective tutor for High School Social Studies and writing, reading and research skills for students in grades 7-12. SAT and ACT preparation.

Grammar

Grammar is the icing on the cake. Many people attempt to learn English and do but they find the subtleties of grammar hold them back. I have worked as a writing tutor at Naugatuck Valley Community College in Danbury, CT, for the past 4 years. I am experienced at working with many people whose first language was not English. I am familiar with the challenges and I know how to approach the subject piece by piece. Take heart, I can help.

I am a lifelong student of history. I loved Social Studies in high school and in college I changed my major to Political Science because of a dynamic professor, Dr. Richard Finnegan.

My qualifications include a B.S. in Political Science as an undergraduate at Stonehill College in Easton, MA, and a Masters in Teaching from the University of Bridgeport.
