About Pam

Hello! I have been in Education for several years. Currently, I am a high school science teacher in Sandy Springs. I have been a high school teacher, elementary teacher, middle school teacher, special education teacher, ESOL teacher and guidance counselor. I have always loved teaching. When I was a young girl, I used to play school and knew then that I wanted to be a teacher. I have had a few other different jobs, but I always went back to the classroom. I love being around youth!

Teaching is fulfilling. I have tutored for several years in after-school and Saturday programs. I enjoy tutoring on my "time off!"

The methods I use in my teaching and tutoring are varied. The main focus is to be persistent; I make sure that the students learn no matter what I have to do to make it happen.

I have a high success rate with my students passing the CRCT subtests. Even students in special education whom I have taught have passed CRCT subtests and other standardized tests on which they have never before seen success. That, along with more confidence and improved behavior, are definitely why teachers do what we do and love it!

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.
