About Terry

The most important thing when teaching is to be patient and encouraging because once a student becomes frustrated they can't learn the material. I raised two sons who had difficulty in several subjects so I know how to break lessons down into small pieces that are easier to absorb and understand. I've recently been working with students in Kindergarten through third grade. A good foundation in reading and math are so important to success in middle and high school but it's never too late to get help in a subject. It's so fulfilling to see the smile and pride on a student's face when they have a breakthrough in a lesson. I love seeing the transformation in a student's confidence and happiness when they improve their grades!

I have a Bachelor's degree in Horticultural Science from the University of Florida. My courses included botany, biology, zoology, microbiology, agronomy, chemistry, genetics, and animal science classes. I live on a small farm with a large garden, fruit trees, chickens, ducks, geese and horses so I have lots of practical experience with plants and animals as well.

I have a very flexible schedule and can usually set up an appointment the same day if I hear from you before 11am.
