I am a strong teacher of English for a variety of reasons. I have worked with middle school students as well as high school and am certified in English in both levels. I have a very good understanding of grammar and significant experience with literature. I have experience in motivating students. I enjoy working with students of all ages.
I am certified to work with Elementary students in all general subjects and math.
I also have a background in Art. I taught Art to elementary and middle school students for several years. I do my own artwork and continue to study art for my own improvement.
My first priority in working with students is to establish a rapport. Then, I help the student to understand what they are being assigned in classes and how to approach completing assignments. My goal is to train the student to learn work independently using simple steps to understanding. When students are able to complete assignments in the subject area which challenges them, I would help them by developing supplementary assignments and work to achieve higher grades in all subject areas.
In my college teaching, I also taught study skills and this knowledge of how to approach learning and test taking can be helpful in all subject areas. In addition, I have helped my own three children pursue and complete college degrees and go on to successful careers. I am a strong teacher of English for a variety of reasons.

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.
As an College Counselor with 10 years experience I assist students in selecting colleges which may be appropriate for their interests, skills, goals and achievements as well as their school record and test scores. I help students to prepare for applying to colleges of their choice, including test selection and preparation, filling out actual applications and choosing individuals to write recommendations. Students will review ways of writing college essays. I help students to find out about financial aid and fill out necessary forms.
As a tutor with Elementary (K-6th) students, first, I do some assessment, or finding out about where students have challenges in their school subject(s). During that process, we are both learning about each other and hopefully the student is getting comfortable enough to learn. I use a variety of teaching methods for their time learning with me. I use reading, speaking and writing together about the subject the student needs help with. I also use games, flash cards and give students resources to take home. I will use the student's actual homework to help them learn about the subject to make sure that is complete and correct. I will also use extra materials to reinforce learning which may or may not happen in the classroom. I want them to learn ways to help themselves succeed when they are back in the classroom.
Elementary math skills in all areas of math. Students will be taught to read problems, understand the process of setting up and solving simple equations, encouraged to learn basic skills by writing, speaking and visualizing their knowledge.
I am a certified English teacher and have worked with middle school as well as elementary and high school English students. I am very familiar with literature and have been successful helping students improve their English grades.
I have many years of proofreading experience and can help with the editing process as well. Students will be able to improve their error spotting skills as well as figuring out what is appropriate for their objectives in writing.
Reading and math are foundations for learning and success in school and work settings. Individual tutoring provides a positive and focused environment to help children learn. Using age appropriate, fun materials students will be taught skills to help them achieve their goals.
I have taught study skills in the past in both middle school and community college. I have a good working knowledge of specific activities to use with students to help them with their study skills. I have helped students to achieve higher scores on their quizzes and tests using the help from me. I have also taught students coping skills to help them deal with test anxiety.
