Bio

I have experience teaching grades 2 through adults in subjects such as Science (Anatomy, Biology, Physical, Earth, Environmental, General, FL DOE Certified), Math (grades 2-9), Reading (grades K-12, FL DOE Certified), ESOL (grades K-12, FL DOE Certified), English, History, Spanish (B.A. in Modern Languages, Spanish/German, lived in Mexico twice) and many elective subjects.

I have experience teaching grades 2 through adults in subjects such as Science (Anatomy, Biology, Physical, Earth, Environmental, General, FL DOE Certified), Math (grades 2-9), Reading (grades K-12, FL DOE Certified), ESOL (grades K-12, FL DOE Certified), English, History, Spanish (B.A. in Modern Languages, Spanish/German, lived in Mexico twice) and many elective subjects. I also have twelve years' experience in private tutoring of ill students in their homes under the Sarasota School Board's Hospital/Homebound program. I love to meet people where they are and help infuse in them a love of learning that will help them throughout their lifetimes.

I have a very good grasp of English grammar and composition and do some writing myself. I love to meet and work with people from other lands and cultures and have been both an exchange student myself and a host sister (in my youth) and a host mother (as an adult). Having majored in languages in colleges and being fluent in Spanish has helped my ESOL teaching skills.

I have lived in Mexico twice, (once as an exchange student in high school and again after college), and earned my Bachelor's degree in Modern Languages, majoring in Spanish. I am fluent in conversational Latin American Spanish.

Let me help you learn the subjects you need or want to know. I am an easy going yet effective teacher who wants to help you learn not only a subject area, but the learning skills you will need to keep on learning your whole life through.
