About Colleen

Hello! I would welcome the opportunity to continue my teaching skills while creating a challenging and fun learning environment for you (or your child/student) this Summer. I enjoy tutoring students and helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve and to better prepare them for the start of school this Fall.

I have extensive work experience in both education (language arts & reading) and babysitting and I also have a background in music: I graduated Jefferson High School in 1982, high honors, first chair clarinetist. I have a bachelors degree from U of M-Flint in graphic design with Fine Arts & French Language concentration. I am an insured, licensed driver with reliable transportation. I can assist you at the local library (mine or yours) or in your home.

My experience working with children ranges from infant to high school. As a substitute teacher, I work with both elementary and secondary school age children. I have a strong understanding of the general abilities, learning styles and interests of children of all ages. I have 2 sons myself, ages 21 and 24 now, and a beautiful 2 1/2 yr old granddaughter, all living in Oakland County. My sons grew up with the regular companionship of 6 neighborhood children of whom I was the full-time caretaker of from 1991 thru 1996. My schedule is flexible this Summer, leading into late September. I would be returning to Monroe & Wayne County school districts by the end of September. Please let me know if this works for you. Thank You!

I have artistic and computer skills, with strong Social Studies, English, Reading & Grammar skills. I have helped students learn to analyze literature, write essays, & research papers, understand historical events, and prepare for quizzes and exams. I can also assist with intermediate French (elementary & middle school).
