Bio

I have fourteen years experience as an English teacher at the junior high and senior high level. Primarily, I taught freshmen and sophomore students with a full load of six classes a day. In addition, I taught two smaller classes of students who needed more intensive assistance in a classroom where they could receive one on one help more frequently. We also worked more intensively on basic skills that, for one reason or another, these students struggled to master. Some of these students...

I have fourteen years experience as an English teacher at the junior high and senior high level. Primarily, I taught freshmen and sophomore students with a full load of six classes a day. In addition, I taught two smaller classes of students who needed more intensive assistance in a classroom where they could receive one on one help more frequently. We also worked more intensively on basic skills that, for one reason or another, these students struggled to master. Some of these students needed encouragement more than anything and others needed skill development and practice in an environment that was not threatening. If they made a mistake, they knew they wouldn't be embarrassed by others in the room.

My knowledge of English grammar is very solid. It's true what they say, that if you really want to learn something, teach it. Additionally, my students were involved in an intensive writing program. Students ranged widely in interest level and ability, and I worked hard to gain results in all of them. I am confident, based on their performance in colleges and later in the workplace, that my efforts produced results.

Much of the writing was based on our study of literature. In class we discussed poetry and all types of literature. I always did whatever I could to interest students. Some of my favorite stories I taught year after year, and it was a challenge for me to make them fresh sometimes, but I always did because I love the literature so much and I believe it's such a rich heritage we have in our country. It was always my goal to encourage students to become life-long learners and readers.

If I am chosen to be your tutor, I will demonstrate these same values.
