Not Your Traditional Teacher!
I am a parent of 2 children - both smart but both with different learning styles. I have had to go back to school myself right along side of each one of them. In order for them to be successful, I had to learn how to teach to them the way their daily instructors could not. My son, now 21, still comes to me for different study habits when the traditional ones are not getting him where he needs to be. My daughter, a HS Jr., still occasionally utilizes my tutor knowledge. She is my success story as we were told that she would never be able to pass standardize tests. Today she is taking her ACT for college and is successful. Don't get me wrong, there are bumps in the road. We have gone from hours of tutoring every night and on weekends to her doing her classwork almost completely on her own. We all need a little help along the way, RIGHT?
Why do I have the right to teach you? I have worked as a substitute teacher for 12+ years. The children I work with are predominantly children with special needs. I have worked with all types of children from mild learning disabilities to profoundly handicap children. I have learned that we all have limits to learning in one setting; but that through different styles of teaching, one can continue just a little more. Further, I have coached middle school and high school children in soccer and softball. I was asked to coach not only for my knowledge of the sport but also for my ability to organize, care for and make sure that each player knew their importance.
I have a Bachelor's Degree and I am a certified Paralegal. I have held many licenses such as a Series 6, 26 & Life and Health with Variable Annuities; but through all that, I found that learning how to study for each course was what I like the most. If you are in need of test taking skills and executive functioning, I am your instructor. I am a very detailed and organized person.
Although I am flexible, I do require a 24 hour cancellation notice. I will certainly try to arrange a makeup session.
In conclusion, teaching doesn't always happen within four walls and it doesn't always come from sitting in a seat with a book in front of you. Learning needs to be fun, exciting and sometimes non-traditional. I look forward to helping you in your academic success!

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.
I was an assistant high school softball coach for 5 years under the direction of Mark Ritchhart @ Pine Castle Christian Academy. I not only was responsible for scoring, managing the team events but I was also taught softball skills. I helped with the hitting and field mechanics. Also, I was accountable for knowing basic rules of the game. During my time with Coach Ritchhart, we were successful in making it to the Florida State Softball finals 3 out of 5 years.
