Bio

I have been an educator for over thirty years. I taught for a nonprofit agency for over twenty years teaching children and adults. I have tutored children, special needs college students and nontraditional students. Most recently I tutored a fifth grade student who had difficulty with math and reading. I taught her to play gin rummy (she had to keep score) and once she learned how to multiply by five learning how to multiply the remaining numbers was easy for her. We also played Scrabble and...

I have been an educator for over thirty years. I taught for a nonprofit agency for over twenty years teaching children and adults. I have tutored children, special needs college students and nontraditional students. Most recently I tutored a fifth grade student who had difficulty with math and reading. I taught her to play gin rummy (she had to keep score) and once she learned how to multiply by five learning how to multiply the remaining numbers was easy for her. We also played Scrabble and she needed to play words with at least four letters. She learned to read and spell and had fun. I also recently taught a man who had been in a motorcycle accident and had received head injuries. He was enrolled in a writing class. He never enjoyed writing and had difficulties after his accident.

I enjoy tutoring/teaching because it's so exciting when a student "learns" a skill. They are so proud of themselves; their eyes sparkle and they grin. It's very satisfying. I like tutoring one-to-one. There's much more personal interaction. I can devote my entire time to one student.

I enjoy geometry. It has been my experience a person enjoys geometry because of the drawing and is able to "see" what needs to be accomplished.

I enjoy reading and writing. It's my philosophy a student learns to read until third grade and after this, the student reads to learn. If she/he cannot read, they will have an unsuccessful academic experience. I want every student to enjoy reading as much as I do. When a person reads, she/he reads many different skills of writing. Reading, writing and grammar go hand in hand.

I enjoy working with young people. They are eager to learn. I don't want them to u=have an unsuccessful experience in school. I want to show them learning can be fun. It doesn't matter how old a person is, learning should be fun. I make it fun. I have experienced other tutors "teaching" students to read. I shutter when I hear how they address the student and the tasks they want the student to learn.

I have been a Red Cross Instructor Trainer for over twenty years. I taught children - adults swimming. I no longer hold certifications in Red Cross, but I continue to teach swimming. Learning to swim needs to to a fun experience. I remember how I didn't enjoy learning to swim because my teacher didn't understand this concept. I don't want others to have the same experience I did.

I enjoy teaching a person a new skill. Learning doesn't have to be difficult. Everything can be broken down into simple steps (chemistry and physics, too). Learning is fun.
