About Terri

I have teaching experience in public high schools, GED classes and have taught for the last six years as an adjunct English professor for a local community college. I worked for 10 years with low literacy adults and am very knowledgeable with techniques and tools for various learning styles and learning difficulties. I believe in hands-on learning as more effective for students. I also believe in teaching creative and innovative thinking so concepts are retained as opposed to just memorized.

I have a bachelor's degree in English Secondary Education and a master's degree in Adult Education. I have worked with all ages kids, teens and adults and have found success with all of them. I believe in treating all people with respect and that all people have the potential to succeed, as long as they are willing to face the work that it takes to be successful.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Bible Studies

I have studied the Bible since I was a child and spent many hours not only reading the Bible, but using commentaries and listening to Biblical teachers to truly understand what the Bible has to say. I also believe in not forcing my faith onto people, but letting them study and decide for themselves.

Business

I have been in the business world for over 20 years. I worked for 10 years as a Human Resources Representative as a Recruiter, Benefits Administrator, Program Coordinator and Corporate Trainer. In the non-profit world, I have worked as program coordinator and program director of several non-profit programs, with tasks such as grant-writing, budget administration, program development, and case management.

Career Development

My early career was working in a county employment office helping low income and others find and keep jobs. In addition, I taught job skills pre-employment classesb. I then moved to a corporate job as a human resources representative, which included the hiring and firing of people. During my time as coordinator with Literacy Volunteers, I started a job skills program that not only included reading, writing and math on the job but also computer training and eventually a business (grant funded) that allowed people in need to learn on-the-job skills. This program included working with clients to help them research, apply and receive jobs that fit with their skill levels and interests.

Study Skills

I have worked with learning difficulties for over 15 years - first as a coordinator and director of a Literacy Volunteer program and then as a GED instructor for a couple of years. In addition, I work with LPN students teaching study skills as well as teaching both Study Skills and Remedial Reading and Writing Skills at Morrisville State College, Norwich Branch.
