Hi, I've recently retired from teaching in the public schools, which I began in 1990. The greatest reward I got from teaching was the excited look I saw on the face of one of my students when he or she finally "got it". That is the joy I would like to share with you as you work to overcome the obstacles that stand in your way.
I held certification in all academic subjects at the middle school level, and in grades K-12 in the special education areas of SLD, ED, and CD. My teaching experience ranges from kindergarten through 12th grade.
I believe that the individualized approach that I use, along with your efforts to succeed, will result in success for you in the area in which you may be struggling.
I especially enjoy math and believe I can help you feel confident in your ability to understand the concepts and applications in a way that will work for you.
I will normally respond within 24 hours to any requests to set up sessions and will be happy to meet with you prior to arranging a paid session so that we can be sure we are a good fit.

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 personally was diagnosed with ADHD in my late 40's. I believe that this gives me an increased depth of understanding of the unique needs of this population. Also, I am licensed in the special education areas of CD, SLD, ED, and have over 23 years of experience with these students in my classroom. Individual tutoring is absolutely best suited to the needs of those with ADHD due to the flexibility it provides both the tutor and the student.
