Eastern Michigan University B.A. Elementary Education; Mathematics (Mathematics)
According to the standards set forth in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, the State of Michigan has declared that I am highly qualified to teach all subjects in grades K-5 (K-8 Self Contained), as well as middle school mathematics ("EX" endorsement).
Prior to attending Eastern Michigan University where I received a B.S. in education (4/10), I enjoyed a lengthy and successful career as a realtor in Wayne, Oakland and Livingston counties. I've been an active guest teacher in many communities while seeking a full-time position in a public school setting.
I firmly believe that all students can succeed in all subjects provided they have adequate support. It would be my pleasure to work with you and your child to increase their achievement in prealgebra, algebra I/II, geometry, organization/study skills and test preparation. Please note that I possess considerable experience teaching/tutoring students in each of these areas.
After our initial meeting, I will formulate a detailed plan tailored to the unique needs of your child in order to ensure their success. The benefits of this process include, yet are not limited to, reduced anxiety, greater confidence, higher self-esteem and ultimately increased achievement.
Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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 been teaching and tutoring students in grades 3-12 and beyond for more than nine years. I am committed to the success of all of my students. Everyone learns differently, which is why I will formulate a detailed agenda designed to meet the specific needs of each new client thereby maximizing the productivity of every lesson. The end result of this process is increased student achievement!
