Hello! I am so excited about the opportunity to tutor students this summer! I absolutely adore children of all abilities and enjoy helping them gain confidence in themselves. I have been a teacher for 25 years, led many extracurricular clubs and activities, and have always tutored after school. My expertise is language arts, as I love reading and writing. Reading and writing are subjects which help in all other subject areas, as well in everyday life.
I enjoy tutoring for many reasons. It is very fulfilling to me, as my mission is to help children gain the knowledge and confidence that they are all capable of having. I am a mom of four, so I totally understand and relate to the needs and feelings of children. I have experienced the joys and frustrations that come with successes and failures. I use many strategies in order to differentiate and reach students of all learning styles. I am aware that all children are unique with their own gifts and talents, and all children learn differently. I enjoy the challenge of meeting my responsibility of helping all children succeed, regardless of their ability level. Seeing the smiles on children's faces when they master skills makes my heart happy!
I am National Board certified in English Language Arts. I am certified in elementary education, middle school English, earned my Master's Degree in education, and earned my National Board certification twice. I have taught language arts for 25 years, to students of all ability levels. I utilize many resources, constantly research instructional strategies, and use a variety of activities in order to meet the needs of all learning styles. I teach all forms of writing, am strong in grammar, mechanics, the writing process, and sentence structure. I focus on writing organization, using details, creativity, vocabulary choice, revision, and editing. Writing is my passion, and after I retire, I plan to write/publish books.
I truly hope that you contact me so that we can schedule time to interact one-on-one in order to help you to feel successful in reading and writing! I am very caring, compassionate, patient, understanding, positive, personable, and I make learning fun! I am eager to hear from you so that we can begin learning about our awesome English language together! Hello! I am so excited about the opportunity to tutor students this summer!

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.
