I love working with students one on one. I enjoy finding out where a student is academically, then helping them move forward and improve. My style of teaching is very individualized. I like to look at each students strengths and weaknesses and help them. I typically have a very hands on experience based approach to learning using many different methods to teach a concept. I have 12 years of classroom teaching experience. I have taught in the elementary classroom, but most of my teaching has been in middle school science. I also have 20 years of experience tutoring students in most areas of education.
Evansville, IN is not the only place I spend time teaching. I also travel to the country of Myanmar every other summer and spend time teaching English in orphanages and colleges. I am also a mother of a high school student and a middle school student. I have been a classroom elementary/middle school teacher for 12 years and I specialize in the area of Science. I use a hands on experience learning approach to my teaching. I have tutored many students in Biology and Chemistry.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
