Learning should be a pleasant experience for everyone. My own love of learning led me to a career in education. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maine in Orono with both a bachelor and master's degree. I have taught for thirty years and have always loved to help someone who wants to learn. My primary teaching experience has been in the middle school, but I have tutored students from grades five through college. I have taught all subjects with the exception of science.

I use teaching methods that work best for the learner. These may include visual, auditory, tactile, practical, or combinations of such. When appropriate, I believe it is crucial to teach the life-long skill of "how to learn" along with the actual content. Being a one-on-one tutor allows me to provide a personalized learning experience for my student. I also realize there are situations whereby a student may have a specific goal to attain, such as completing a term paper or making up uncompleted work. I certainly will work with the student to get this accomplished. Together, with persistence and positiveness, we will have success.

At least in the beginning, I prefer to meet in an agreed upon public place that is conducive to learning. My hours are very flexible, so I can accommodate most schedules. I look forward to putting my skills to work for you.
