Hi, I'm Tammy!
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University. After a successful career in chiropractic, I sold my practice to become a homemaker and tutor.

I have one year of experience tutoring a second grader in math, and eight years of experience teaching middle and high schoolers in a casual setting. I vividly recall my favorite teachers, and found that I learned best from teachers who were engaged with me personally, and who were able to approach topics from several differing points of view. I apply this knowledge to my tutoring approach, placing an emphasis on building personal connections and incorporating connections between subject matter and the students’ areas of interest. I am compassionate and patient, and provide a fun yet challenging environment for students to learn. I begin each lesson with a review of the previous week’s material and time to catch up on any areas of confusion or difficulty. I usually introduce new lessons in a fun and creative way, then proceed with direct teaching, with time for students to practice and ask questions as we go. I encourage students to participate in the lesson, as I find it helps with understanding and retention of the material. Typically the end of the lesson is set aside for students to practice on their own. I am flexible based on individual needs or learning styles.

I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible, and therefore welcome any resources or suggestions students or parents can provide. Feel free to contact me with any questions, or to schedule a lesson!

I took piano lessons for 13 years, and was successful as a soloist and accompanist. I competed in music competitions and took home the highest award in the state of Wisconsin, and accompanied several singers who also took home the highest award. I played with my church worship team, my high school choir, with singers, bands, and violinists, and as a soloist. I am currently giving lessons out of my home.

I have been ballroom dancing for two years and am competent in east coast swing, west coast swing, rumba, cha cha, salsa, waltz, foxtrot and hustle.
