Georgia Perimeter College (Journalism)
I have been fortunate enough to travel internationally and learn foreign cultures and languages. These experiences forever changed the way I view the world and also stimulated a desire in me to dig deeper and learn more. Not everyone can do this but there are ways to expand your horizons even if travel is not possible.
Reading is a wonderful way to enhance your knowledge and also 'take you to places' that you have never dreamed you can go. Whether it's a fantasy world or a true hike across Europe, there are no limits to the places you can experience. I love sharing my experiences with children through reading exciting books and telling stories of intrigue. Studies show that children who are avid readers or who are read to, do better across the board in their school careers than those who don't.
My major in college was Journalism because I excelled in English courses from high school on. I have always found the English language fascinating with all of the different dialects and regional accents. The more you know about the English language and it's origins, the better you can understand other languages and cultures.
My fourth child is currently in elementary school and I help her daily with her school work. I have been doing this for more than 20 years for all of my children. As the curriculum has changed through the years, so has my approach and the tactics that I use to be current and provide the best instruction possible.
I believe that the more you learn, the stronger you will be in everything you do. Video games and television are fun and sometimes informative but they don't really encourage a child to use his/her imagination; they basically do all of the thinking for them. Two people can read the same book and yet their book reports will be completely different. This is a direct result of using one's brain creatively. Reading is amazing and very fun and I like to be the person that convinces a child of that. I have been fortunate enough to travel internationally and learn foreign cultures and languages. These experiences forever changed the way I view the world and also stimulated a desire in me to dig deeper and learn more.

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.
