I'm a retired elementary school teacher who misses the work of teaching. I loved reading to and telling stories to students. I loved getting students involved in life science projects. I loved helping others acquire a love of language and a love and curiosity about growing things.
Knowing that I am a well-trained and experienced teacher, I think that the best way to continue doing what I love and to share what I know with others is to tutor individuals and small groups.
This past winter of 2013, I completed the certificate program for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages at Kennesaw State University near Atlanta, Georgia. This study was a fantastic review of the daily work of a teacher and gave me new knowledge: that of teaching adults.
I am a patient, quiet person who realizes that learning is best done in a relaxed but stimulating environment, and in an atmosphere where it's okay to make mistakes and repeat the lesson perhaps more than once.
I don't believe that "one size fits all." Each of us is a unique individual; that uniqueness needs to be appreciated and valued with lessons that take in account the student's learning style, passions and genius. Hi,

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.
