I am a mature college graduate from Indiana University with degrees in journalism and German. I have 13+ years of teaching experience with children ranging in age from five to sixteen, and working with a wide range of learning styles and temperaments. One of my strongest skills is knowing how to tailor a student's learning experience to their needs, interests, and learning styles. I have found that a student who is fully engaged will learn better as they rediscover their love of learning and their natural curiosity and wonder will take over. When the walls of resistance are dismantled, then the real work and joy of learning can take place and obstacles can be overcome in the learning process. My students have gone on to make the successful transition from individualized one-on-one home tutoring to a public school setting, achieving high marks in their classes.

I am also an experienced editor in both educational and professional settings. My professional experiences include editing books for IU Press and writing in-house quarterly publications for a manufacturing company. My first love though is to see a young student's face light up with understanding and fascination as they grasp the material they are studying. I look forward to working with your young person to help them overcome their challenges and become a vibrant and enthusiastic learner in the subject in which they formerly struggled.
