Bio

Dear Students and Parents: What makes you passionate about learning? For those of you not in school currently, what made you passionate when you were? For some, it was P.E. For others, unfortunately, they would say lunch or recess. For a few, it might be performing arts or a sport or a particular teacher.

Dear Students and Parents:

What makes you passionate about learning? For those of you not in school currently, what made you passionate when you were? For some, it was P.E. For others, unfortunately, they would say lunch or recess. For a few, it might be performing arts or a sport or a particular teacher. Then there are a couple who would claim that NOTHING makes them passionate about learning. It was for this reason that I became a teacher.

Don't get me wrong. I love students who love learning as much as those who do not, but I specialize in making anything fun and relevant! My background is varied, to say the least. To be descriptive, it includes the following:

Preschool, music, elementary education, tutoring, special education, middle school, high school, post-grads in E.S.E., college AND working with students who have A.D.H.D., emotional or behavioral problems, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, potential drop outs and students who have been institutionalized for sensory or mental health needs.

Now, as a full time teacher at a private, Christian school, I still desire to teach those who need extra "TLC" or special accommodations. Although my availability has changed, my heart has not. If you are serious about obtaining a professional, experienced tutor, then contact me. Teaching is my passion.

On my business cards, my motto is "Learning is a life long process." For those of you, who may have school phobia, don't be afraid of this statement. If you are reading this right now (or if someone is reading it to you), then CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE LEARNING.

Now you know a lot about me. I challenge you to allow me to learn about you and your needs. Please consider acquiring my services. I would love making learning anything fun for you. You can do it!

Elementary (K-6th)

My initial certification areas during my first five years of teaching were in emotional disturbances/ behavioral disorders and elementary education. This proved to be valuable since I began my teaching career in a special center school for students with severe emotional disabilities and I taught 3rd and 4th graders exclusively. I then taught several years in a mainstream setting with 6th graders, also within the grade levels of elementary education, which was K-6. Within those years I was responsible for teaching reading, language arts, math, social studies and science. Thank you.

Algebra 1

I grew up loving math, with a Calculus professor at a community college as a step father. Doing his math tests at the dining room table just for fun (he habitually left them on the dining room table when he graded), he encouraged me by telling me that I scored better than 3/4 of his class. After voluntarily giving up one elective just to take an additional math course in high school, I temporarily considered a major in math, but chose special education for my undergraduate studies instead. Now I love showing all my students how math can be fun and useful no matter their prior experiences with math have been in the past.

Contact me and I will know that you are serious about overcoming any obstacle you may have in math! I have worked consistently with students who have math phobia, and students who have dyscalcula, the learning disability specific to math abilities for the past 20 years. My youngest students have been elementary and oldest was an Embry Riddle Aeronautical University student in calculas.

Sign Language

My educational background includes American Sign Language I-IV in my undergraduate studies, in which I received grades of A or B. The classes of Psychology of the Deaf, Deaf history and Deaf studies were completed in my graduate program. My Master of Education is in Deaf Education. Finally, as an instructor, I have tutored and taught a variety of sign language courses. The students I have tutored include those with language impairments, autism spectrum disorder and pre-kindergarten programs. I have been teaching American Sign Language I-IV, sign language for children, Baby Sign Language and sign language for families with the public school system and with Easter Seals, since 1999.

So upbeat and loves math

My daughter has been having problems with math. She tries so hard to get it. This is only our second lesson with Elizabeth and I'm hoping she can teach her math that will click in my daughters head and also show her that math can be fun... not to be dreaded. I will keep this updated with more lessons we have with her.
