I have been teaching middle school in the Blue Valley School District for over 15 years. I have privately tutored many of those years, as well. I am currently teaching English/Language Arts, but have taught Math for many years too. I am extremely patient and develop excellent rapport with my students. I believe that it is vital for students and teachers/tutors to have a positive relationship with each other for the most learning to occur. I have years of experience with varying learning styles and will continue trying different strategies until the student learns the concept. I help students get and stay organized, prepare for tests and feel more confident, as students. I love having the opportunity of working one on one with students. This is something ALL students could benefit from having, but there is simply not time in a regular school day.
I am patient with students and realize there are many ways to solve a problem. Because math curriculums have become so reading-based, sometimes the lack of understanding is related to vocabulary or comprehension. I will use my skills as a Language Arts teacher and a Math teacher to help students succeed in both areas.
Please contact me for help with your math or reading/writing needs. I believe in you and would love to help you succeed!

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.
