Dear Parents and Students - I am pleased to have this pathway to help students as they move through their academic school year. Late summer into early fall is a great time to give your child a head start for the new school year. I have a strong background in mentoring and teaching young people from kindergarten through high school. I have a BS degree in elementary education from Wilmington University. This accomplishment has equipped me with the most progressive teaching techniques, which can be applied to a whole classroom setting or for individual students with learning disabilities or who have just fallen behind in their studies. I decided to change careers after spending 12+ years as a self-employed business person. I have worked for the State of DE as a project manager. I am now employed with Christiana Hospital, but I am also returning to tutoring because I enjoy the interaction with students and believe I can help families struggling with education issues or supplement the learning experience. I would describe myself as a self-starter and I enjoy prioritizing goals to successful completion. I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds - particularly children. I believe the combination of my business, education and volunteer background has been the building blocks toward a career in education. My goal was to have the opportunity to work one on one with students and Wyzant has made this possible.

Experience:

-I am a certified elementary education teacher with a dual certification in Exceptional Children K-8th.

-I successfully home-schooled my own two children for a period of 4 years, while they were in 3-7th grades.

While homeschooling, I was hired as a mentor to about 7 home-school families each year. I counseled and collaborated with them regarding organizing their home-school, selecting curriculum, finding multiple resources to enhance the learning day and ensuring they were meeting state standards for education.

-I have a long history teaching children in my volunteer endeavors.

-I was employed as a substitute-guest teacher in a successful Delaware school district and, as such, was in the classroom most of the 2011-2012 school year.

My Personality:

I am patient and calm. I love to learn new things and share learning with others. I truly enjoy working with children and can make learning fun and rewarding, but I don't shy away from our need to be disciplined people. I encourage perseverance and work hard to find the best resources to suit a student individual learning style. I have an extraordinary way of engaging children in their own learning experiences and am confident that together we can meet the academic goals that you, me and the student, "the team," determine are the skills that need to be improved upon or push the student to the next level of academic excellence.

Proofreading

Proofreading

As a medical transcription professional for over 12 years, I worked with general surgical practices, as well as with endocrinology and hematology/oncology practices. The primary function of my work was to create electronic records from dictated documents. I became proficient at proofreading, as this was critical to the accuracy of important patient documents. Editing work is important to create the most concise and accurate documents which follow the patient in their surgical process and ultimate recovery.
