Hi,
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.
