I have been a substitute teacher for over a decade, but only recently have I turned toward full-time teaching. I work in an elementary school and I am well-suited to teach children up to 6th grade in just about any subject, especially math, English, reading, and social studies. I spend most of my time in school helping students one-on-one.
I have a love for words, reading, and languages. Reading is one of the most important skills a child must learn in school. I hope to develop in my students a passion to learn and reading is the gateway to learning.
Math makes sense when you understand the reason for what you're doing. This is the objective I have when teaching kids so that when they learn it really sticks with them.
I love history and my love is infectious in the way I teach. History is really a story, and everyone loves a good story. If taught rightly, any person can find a love for history, too.
I will be happy to help your child succeed at whatever subject they are struggling with, or help challenge them to go further in their academic careers. I could meet with your child at a public library, or possibly at your home if it is a quiet environment. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule tutoring sessions.

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.
