I enjoy helping students figure out how they learn best. Each student, whether they are in second grade or college, learns differently and can succeed in the classroom when they are given the right tools. Even students who regularly do stellar work in class may have a subject that they just don't 'get', and they might just need to look at it from a different perspective to get them back on track.
I earned my MAT and will soon be certified to teach K-8 in Illinois. Language Arts, Science, History, Art, Study Skills and basic math are all areas I feel confident tutoring. I do have experience working with ADD/ADHD and BD children, and find that I enjoy working with these students greatly.

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.
I have used InDesign as a Graphic Designer and Production Artist for several years. I do not consider myself an 'expert' but I am familiar enough to perform tasks like working with templates, creating pages, creating multi-page documents, flowing text, placing images and more.
I have completed my Master's in Education and will soon be certified to teach K-9 in Illinois.
While earning my Master of Arts in Teaching I studied the area of teaching phonics, which I later put into practice during my Student Teaching. I have also used phonics to teach older students in an alternative education environment.
