University of Cincinnati (Elementary Education)
C.W. Post-- Long Island University (Master's)
I started teaching in the New York system in 1970. I attended the University of Cincinnati, where I earned both of my undergraduate degrees. I went to C.W. Post --Long Island University, where I earned my M.A. in Remedial Reading.
I returned to Columbus where I taught in the Columbus City System. I've tutored in after school programs at my elementary school for many years. I also tutored in the program "No Child Left Behind". I retired in December of 2015; but decided I had to go back to my school system. I am now an LLI (Leveled Literacy Tutor) during the school year.
On a personal note, I have two children and two grandchildren. I enjoy my time with them! I love to read and knit.
I love to dance and sing, even though I'm not very good at singing any more. I continue to take classes because I love to learn. I love dogs, and I had a dog all my life.
When I do tutoring in my school, my students go up from 4 to 9 levels in the school year, depending on how much work they're willing to do. I try to make my sessions interesting for my students.
Please contact me for times I am available to set up your sessions. I do a full hour and not 50 minutes. I started teaching in the New York system in 1970.

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.
