I take a holistic approach to teaching my students whereby I determine their learning styles and structure my teaching around that as well as their individualized education plans. Many students fall in a variety of categories or combination of learning styles including, but not limited to the following areas: visual, auditory, tactile- kinesthetic, etc..

My years of experience in teaching and tutoring all students of varying ages and backgrounds equips me with the skills, dedication, credentialing, and passion to see my students move forward as they strengthen their academic abilities in preparation for whatever the educational community and real world sends their way.

I have experienced over twenty-five years of student successes in and out of the classroom as my students have moved forward in their academic and social skills to become college graduates and successful citizens in any type of field the desire to enter.

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.
