Bio

I am a NH certified middle and high school science teacher and hold an MS degree in Environmental Studies with an emphasis in Education from Antioch University in Keene, NH. In 2006, I received a Certificate of Excellence for my Biology Content Knowledge on my biology teaching licensure exam from Educational Testing Service (ETS).

I am a NH certified middle and high school science teacher and hold an MS degree in Environmental Studies with an emphasis in Education from Antioch University in Keene, NH. In 2006, I received a Certificate of Excellence for my Biology Content Knowledge on my biology teaching licensure exam from Educational Testing Service (ETS).

With almost 20 years of teaching experience, I am qualified to tutor students in grades K-12 as well as students at the undergraduate level. For the past 12 years, I have lived and worked with high school students at an independent college preparatory high school -- for several years as a science teacher and now as a dorm parent and private tutor. I have tutored students in AP Biology, AP Literature, and many (if not most) English, social science, and biological science courses offered at Proctor Academy in Andover, NH. I truly enjoy helping students refine their writing (in any subject). I believe that learning to write well is one of the best skills a student can develop for college and for life.

I also have proven success in working with students diagnosed with ADHD, ADD, dyslexia and other learning differences. I believe that all types of learners can succeed. Although I usually work with students on specific academic content, I can also provide students with organizational strategies that improve students' abilities to succeed. I have helped most of my students increase their grade averages by 20 percentage points.

In the last several years, I have been working with juniors and seniors with SAT/ACT preparation and the college application process. Applying for college can be overwhelming for parents and students alike and I have supported many families through this important, but often stressful, endeavor. Not only can I assist with customized SAT and ACT preparation, I can also help students with their college essays from the brainstorming to final draft stages. I approach getting into college with some of my own success under my belt. When I applied to undergraduate colleges, I was admitted into some of the most competitive universities in the country: University of California, Berkeley and University of Michigan.

When I am not tutoring or editing a college essay for one of my students, I can be found bike riding, skiing, or looking for frogs at the local pond with my three young children. I live with my three children (ages 3, 5 and 6), husband, a rambunctious black cat, and 15 ecologically minded teenagers in a dormitory in Andover, NH.

I have a Master's degree and have been a writing tutor for 6 years. Although my Master's degree is in science, I have always had a knack for writing and it comes easily to me. I love the process of writing and helping others gain more fluency in their writing. Most of my teachers throughout my educational career have commented how I am a gifted writer. In fact, I was recognized by my graduate program advisor (who has his PhD from Harvard) for the exceptional job I did on my graduate school entrance essays. Not only have I been tutoring students in writing, but I have recently been tutoring students for the SAT and ACT in the verbal and writing sections. My knowledge of grammar is fresh and up to speed. In addition, my husband is a published author and high school English teacher. Our family is surrounded by papers, editing, and ideas for improving the writing process. We sometimes work collaboratively to help each other with our students' papers. I also have helped him edit his own written work throughout the years, including his graduate thesis in Writing and Poetics.

ADHD

I have a NH teaching certificate and was required to take a graduate level course on "Exceptional Students" which included strategies on working with students with ADHD, as well as anxiety and other learning disabilities. Additionally, I have been tutoring students independently for 6 years at a private independent high school which specializes in addressing the needs of students with learning disabilities, particularly ADHD and dyslexia. 90% of the 15 students I have tutored in the last 6 years have been ADHD, some of whom I tutored for multiple years. Additionally, 2 of my own children were just diagnosed with ADHD this year, so I have been reading several books on this topic including Dr. Hallowell's "Delivered from Distraction". My husband, also ADHD, is under the care of Dr. Hallowell. I have pedagogical as well as personal experience so I have expertise as well as compassion for this condition.
