I am a graduate of the University of Michigan teaching program with a major in English and a minor in Social Studies. I have taught in several school districts in the Detroit area, including Dearborn, Livonia, and Farmington Hills. I have tutored children who were in my classes as well as students from other schools, in English and general elementary school subjects. I believe it is necessary to create a rapport with children and keep their attention through different styles of teaching, while continually checking to be sure they are retaining the information and concepts they need. For English, depending on the age of the student, writing will be used to show that material is understood, and informal testing will also be used. My intention is to work with the student's school where possible to follow the curriculum and aid the learning process by reinforcing current lessons. In some cases, students may not understand the teaching style taught in the school, or miss some important information in class. It will be my goal to go over material that was presented and ascertain which areas need to be strengthened.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have graduated from the University of Michigan with a teaching degree and a major in English. I have worked in several school districts in the Detroit area, including Dearborn and Livonia. I believe I have a special rapport with children and use several methods of teaching to find one that works best with the child. My goal is to get a student up to date with their school work and keep them up to date with supportive guidance. Whenever possible, I will work with the school and the teacher to understand the parameters of the lessons, and to be aware of homework due and dates for testing. Students under my tutelage will understand material, prepare homework more effectively, and be more prepared for any testing.
