About Char

My first session is always free so that we can get to know each other, review your student's work and create a strategy.

As a teacher, tutor and Director of a Learning Center, my first and most important role is to pass on a love of learning to my students! Learning should be inspiring, engaging and creative.

As I work with my students, I look for their particular learning styles and tutor by utilizing their strengths. Each student is unique and each can succeed - given the right tools.

Today there are so many ways to learn using a little imagination! As I teach, I encourage my students to think critically and strategically - outside the box of a textbook so that they understand the material (not just memorize it). I look for opportunities to encourage them in character and strive get them excited about the challenge before them. As a strong motivator and experienced tutor, my relationship with my students is paramount to my success.

In working with students for more than 15 years, and with a Master's Degree in Education, I have taught Elementary through high school ages, all subjects and understand how students learn. I also offer SAT/ACT prep tutoring and classes.

I am flexible with scheduling and do allow for make up sessions with a 12 hour cancellation notice.

I look forward to helping your student succeed!

Please feel free to call me to discuss your goals and strategies for your student.

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.

Bible Studies

I have studied the Bible for the last 20 years in a group setting and also individually. The Bible is a regular part of my quiet time in the mornings. I have participated in an intense Bible study program that has helped me over the years become familiar with the Bible. I would love to work with others to read and understand the Bible through bible study and tutoring.

Logic

Logic is one of the most important subjects that can be learned. As an instructor for SAT/ACT prep as well as FSA tests, I incorporate logic and critical thinking into my tutoring and teaching. I recommend all my students work through Logic books during the summer - as there are some fun ways to learn logic.

Reading

Reading is the foundation of educational success. As I tutor my students I weave in creative ways for them to have fun while they tackle difficult tasks. Building confidence is key to their success!

Study Skills

I help my students organize their work, their schedules and study efficiently. Having a masters degree in education, I have learned the most effective strategies for students to study and understand the challenges with the various distractions of our day. Organization is a key, as well as understanding each student's learning style.

Writing

I have successfully worked with many students, Elementary through High School level, to improve their writing and enjoy the process. My students have applied their writing lessons as they completed school reports, started blogs and written ebooks.
