About Trish

Experience! Enthusiasm! Excellence! I guarantee all 3!

I am an EXPERIENCED classroom teacher at the middle school and high school levels and tutor for students from grade 3 to college students and adults, having taught in Arizona, Nevada, Ohio, and Canada. In addition to teaching and tutoring experience, I have designed curriculum and grade-level specific reading incentive programs. I have a great deal of experience creating innovative, fun, interactive and challenging ways for students to learn. My experiences range from designing recreation center pre-school courses, to creating curriculum on District level committees, to designing and delivering Adult Education Classes. At present, I design curriculum at Sinclair Community College. My experience encompasses pre-school to college and adult level teaching as well as successful private tutoring.

My education includes PhD coursework in Educational Leadership at the Univ. of Dayton and a Master's degree from UNLV, Las Vegas, Nevada. I have a Bachelor's in Chemistry and Math from McGill University, Montreal, Canada, and completed teacher training at the University of Arizona. As you can probably tell, I LOVE to learn.


I have had excellent results, demonstrating a proven ability to work with students who have a range of academic, behavioral, and physical needs. My experience includes working with diverse populations, and second language learners. I am also very comfortable working with students who have moved and who are trying to navigate new systems and structures. My educational training, teaching experiences and skills include: Math, Reading, English, French, Chemistry, Dance, Test Preparation, ACT/SAT/PSAT/OGT, GED, College Readiness and Preschool Instruction. I have had the opportunity to work with multiple former 30+ ACT testers and a National Merit Scholar.

My focus is to be enthusiastic, positive and adaptable. I believe that the student’s needs should lead the sessions. I am always well prepared but adjust as needed. Finally, I am a proponent of hands-on instruction.

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.

Algebra 1

I love math, algebra in particular. I am an experienced teacher, having taught in Arizona, Nevada, Ohio, and Canada. My experience encompasses pre-school to college and adult level teaching as well as successful private tutoring. I have a proven ability to work with students who have a range of academic, behavioral, and physical needs.

My educational training, teaching experiences and skills include: Math, Test Preparation, ACT/SAT/PSAT/OGT, GED, and College Readiness. I have had the opportunity to work with multiple former 30+ ACT testers and a National Merit Scholar.

My focus is to be positive and adaptable.

General Music

I have taken university classes in Music History & Music Theory. I taught choir and ran a select jazz choir performance group for years at a fine arts magnet middle school. I have played the piano for many years testing in the ABRSM music testing system in both theory and piano. I have participated in Music Festivals. I have Suzuki piano certification and have taught musicianship and music workshops for the Suzuki program at the University of Winnipeg.
I am a regular preferred substitute for the Oakwood school district Orchestra and General Music classes

Piano

I played the piano for 10 years, passing the 2nd-to-last level ( grade 7) in the ABRSM international music testing system in both theory and piano playing.
I am also Suzuki piano certified.
I have taught multiple piano, musicianship and workshop musical lessons for the Suzuki program at the University of Winnipeg.
I am a regular preferred substitute for the Oakwood school district Orchestra and general music classes
I have taught private lessons to multiple students in piano and music theory.
I have taken University classes in Music History and Music Theory.

Special Needs

While teaching full time, I found myself differentiating materials and instructional techniques for students who had varied needs, including those identified as having “special needs”. My experiences led me to seek training in serving students who are challenged and learn differently. I have attended a number of workshops and taken Special Ed courses focusing on addressing and serving the needs of special needs students including those with learning delays, autism spectrum disorders, dyslexia, ADD and ADHD. I have served on IEP committees and presently support teachers who serve students with IEPs in the program that I presently supervise. I have successfully tutored a variety of special needs students with differing challenges and rather than teaching to the special need, I instead focus on the success of each student and the way each student thrives while learning.

Study Skills

As a lead curriculum specialist and staff trainer for a college readiness program, I have developed a variety of curriculum pieces and workshop offerings that are delivered to middle school, high school and college students. One of the primary areas that we work in is study skills and time management. Typically students can experience greater success and lessened anxiety when they are coached on study skills.

It doesnt get better than Trish! — Trish is a life saver. I needed extreme help in math to take my ASVAB. I went from 10% on practice tests to 90% and from at 32 to a 62 on my final ASVAB exam within weeks. Without her I would have never qualified. She is very patient and really took time to make sure I understood everything. Trish is very kind, funny and extremely helpful. She is also very easy to get in contact with. She never ma ...
