My love for teaching runs deep! In addition to my 30 years as a teacher, my father, mother, sister, and brother-in-law were all teachers. Together we totaled 164 years of public school and college instruction...it's in the "family blood" so to speak! I very much prefer at this time to work with individual students, and am rewarded by seeing them advance their needed learning skills.
During my career I taught English/Language Arts, Public Speaking, GED, and Exceptional Student Education, which included English, Reading, Math, History, Science, Study Skills, Life Skills, and Physical Education. As you can see I am experienced in a wide variety of subjects.

My ultimate goal is to form a personal rapport with my students, showing them enthusiasm and the true love there can be for learning! :0) My love for teaching runs deep!

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.
