I have been certified in both Iowa and Illinois to teach Upper Elementary, Middle School, Junior High School and High School students. My areas of concentration are Language Arts and English, both literature and writing, and Social Studies including American and World History. I have taught writing intensive courses, as well as remedial summer school courses, which included grammar, writing, literature and life skills, for ninth through twelfth grade students.

While in college, I was the first recipient of the Sister Mary Helen Reppenecker Award for excellence in Academic Writing, which was a “blind” judged contest. I, also, served as the only student member on the Writing in Search of Excellence (writing across the curriculum) committee.

I believe in identifying a student’s individual learning style and working with the strengths he or she already has to aid in the areas where more proficiency is needed. In correcting written assignments or proofreading, I do not believe just pointing out and correcting the errors is sufficient. I believe the student should also understand why what he or she wrote was wrong. I also believe that learning to be a stronger writer will benefit the student long beyond classroom study. A sentence may be grammatically correct, but still be the wrong sentence for the idea the student is trying to convey.

I believe an understanding of history and government in essential to being a good citizen. History is not just memorizing significant dates and places, but recognizing the interplay of people and ideas that created historical events.

For the past five years I have worked as a scorer for the essay portion of the SAT test. Because of that commitment I am unable to tutor your student specifically on how to write a high scoring SAT essay. However, I can give her or him the tools to write an excellent essay in most situations which should translate to a high scoring essay not only on the SAT but, also, college applications and other occasions. My SAT work and other scoring I have done have given me a very current window in students’ writing abilities and common problems with today's student writing.
