University of Mary Washington (Biology)
As a parent and teacher, my love of seeing success in and out of the classroom is paramount. I initially taught biology labs at the collegiate level. My current position is that of a preferred substitute teacher in grades Pre-K through high school in Madison. I have a B.S. In Biology (pre-med) from the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
One of my passions is my business, where I teach lessons about what it is like to have a learning disability. Also included in the business is a presentation on Navigating the College Admissions Process for Students with Learning Disabilities. This has been presented to elementary schools, parent groups, and at the collegiate level.
As a compassionate mother and advocate, I have worked with students of all grade levels and abilities to find their strengths and give them the proper tools to be successful. Organizational skills are the foundation of success in academics and careers. Please contact me to help you and/or your child succeed.

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.
I have worked with students, from regular education to developmentally disabled, on handwriting skills. This would include, but not be limited to, proper grip, spacing, proper letter formation and distinguishing between capital and lowercase letters. Although there is more use of technology to aid students in handwriting tasks, it is still important to have this ability. Whether it is focusing on the basics, developing handwriting skills that are clearer or working on correcting bad habits, I have tried to do this with persistance, practice and some fun!
I take pride in the fact that I not only have taught my children organizational skills, like outlining textbook and classroom materials, the importance in preparation of note cards, and pacing work to achieve the highest success, but have worked with students in school to do the same. Many tools - color coding, proper preparation and time management skills, add to success in the classroom and with homework. I have worked independently with students to read, decipher important information and respond to pertinent, specific questions on the materials.
