Who keeps student essays from 20 years ago? I do. I love to write and to help students become better readers and writers. I have been a teacher for 32 years and have taught kindergarten, first, second, fourth, sixth and 8th grade students. I am certified in English 7-12, Elementary N-6 and Reading K-12. For the last 13 years I was a reading specialist and worked with students in need of academic intervention in reading.
Teaching is a calling for me and I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey. "Oh the places you'll go..."(Dr. Seuss) Tutoring and teaching enable me to see the light go on as a student begins to grasp a concept or idea that was previously unfamiliar. What could be more exciting?
I was an English major in college and graduated cum laude at 20! Subsequently I earned my master's degree in education, specifically, Reading, and was teaching at the same time. Even at the very beginning of my teaching career I worked with students in need of extra help or academic intervention. I am able to tutor Reading, SAT Reading, Vocabulary, Literature and Writing.

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.
