I have taught a variety of students ranging from inner city elementary school to high school math and science. I am currently teaching at a special needs private school in Raleigh. In 2010, I earned my masters degree in Liberal Studies from North Carolina State University. My undergraduate degree in Elementary Education is from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have been teaching math at the high school level for the past ten years. I also have an expert rating in chess and played in my first chess tournament in 1972, the year Bobby Fischer won the world championship.

Special Needs

ADHD

Many of my students at The Trilogy School have ADHD / ADD. I have ten years of experience working with LD children. ADHD children need a lot of patience, redirection, and structure. They also need to be reminded that ADHD is and obstacle, not an excuse.
Special Needs

Special Needs

I have been working with special needs children for the past 10 years. I am currently employed at the Trilogy School in Raleigh, a special needs private school where I teach math and science. Patience is key to working with special needs children. They need time to process. They also need structure, they do not handle surprises well.

Sports/Recreation

Chess

Chess

Chess is a game best learned backwards. There are three parts to a chess game: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. By learning the endgame first, it becomes clearer to see what you need to do in the middlegame which in turn makes it easier to understand the opening. I have been playing in chess tournaments since 1972 and I have an expert rating. I have taught a number of chess classes so I have experience teaching chess as well as playing.

Patient and Knowledgable

Very patient and was able to connect with my daughter at her level of understanding. We wish our schedules could have been better matched. Would have liked to continue lessons, but due to the time of my daughters Kung fu class, it was difficult to make it to class on time.

Unique ability assist my daughter in the learning experience.

My daughter can be impulsive and distracted when in the classroom or tutor setting. She can also become anxious or zone out during instruction. I have been impressed with this tutor's ability to draw my daughter into the learning experience and make her feel at ease. She looks forward to the sessions and actually enjoys the instruction. The tutor uses a variety of techniques that keep my daughter interested in the subject matter. Tutor shows genuine interest and compassion. Very pleased!
