CW POST COLLEGE (History education)
University of Connecticut (MEd)
Hello I am a retired teacher from Connecticut. I have taught 5-8 grade students in a Gifted and Talented Program as well as high school courses in the areas of History and Social Studies. Also, I was an adjunct professor in a community college where I taught Developmental English courses with emphasis on the writing and research skills needed for college courses. I also taught courses in World and Regional Geography. Furthermore, I have substitute taught in elementary schools so I am aware of the specific curriculum for the younger students.
Before my husband (also a teacher) and I retired to Maryland, we were dorm parents for an international program at a high school. Not only did we take care of 11 Chinese girls, I also tutored many students in English and History. This experience was truly rewarding and educational for me. Because of my vast experience in the field of education I would like to continue with the work through tutoring. Hello I am a retired teacher from Connecticut.

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 have taught and tutored in elementary schools from pre-k to 6th grade. I have also been certified by the State of Connecticut to teach pre-k - 12th grade. I love working with younger students to help them master the basics in reading and writing so that they can continue to have success in their education.
