I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology, a master's degree in Counseling and Human Resource Development with a specialization in Student Personnel Services, and I enjoy people. I enjoy young people and teaching and tutoring are my strong points.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Bible Studies

I have been a student of the Bible for 45 years, since my teen years when I participated in Bible quizzes. I read through the Bible each year and have taken several courses on the Bible through my church. These courses include Reading it Right, Know What You Believe, The Gospel Truth, The Attributes of God, Conformed to His Image and the Doctrines of Grace. I took New Testament Studies in college and have studied religions of the world.

Career Development

I have a master's degree in Counseling and Human Resource Development with an emphasis in student personnel services. My internship was done in the career services office of a private college in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Since that time, I have administered the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the Strong Interest Inventory and the Campbell Individualized Skills Survey to several individuals. I have done this privately and through the auspices of a Christian counseling agency.

College Counseling

My specialization in graduate school was Student Personnel Services. I interned for an academic year in the Career Counseling Office of the University of Sioux Falls in Sioux Falls, South Dakota during the 1994-1995 school year. I administer the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Strong Interest Survey and Campbell Individualized Skills Survey to career clients on a private basis and have done so for twenty years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been employed for 14 years as an elementary school counselor. I teach anger management, conflict resolution, study skills, drug and alcohol abstinence and stranger safety to children ages 5 through 12. I occasionally fill in when a teacher is sick. I have three years' experience as a substitute teacher and 1 year of experience as a teacher's aide in a private, Christian School. I was an aide to 3rd-6th graders.

Social Studies

I went back to college in 1976-77 to get my secondary teaching certificate in social studies. I have coursework in American History, World Geography and Macro and Microeconomics. I also have a course in Latin American Geography. My Bachelor's degree is in Sociology which relates to Social Studies.

Study Skills

I have a master's degree in counseling and teach study skills to elementary school students at an Elementary School. I have had to be organized to get my B.A. in Sociology with a 3.23 average and my master's in counseling with a 3.75 average. I did the latter in the late 80's while managing a home, husband, baby and a job.
