I am a full-time teacher with several years experience, mostly with middle school and upper elementary children. I am Ohio-certified for N, K & Grades 1-6 and Social Studies Grades 7-9. Virtually all of my teaching has been in private schools, so I have been able to teach subjects outside of my secondary certification. I love teaching language arts and math as well as history.
I have taught at international schools in five countries outside the USA: Tunisia, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Cameroon and Zambia, so I have a pretty world-wide perspective and can work comfortably with all kinds of people. I am accustomed to treating students as individuals, with unique interests, abilities, and styles of learning and communicating.
I am currently teaching grade six and grade seven language arts and social studies at Central College Christian Academy in Westerville, Ohio. CCCA is, obviously, a Christian school, very child-centered and flexible in meeting individual learning needs of children, and I feel the school’s philosophical and moral approach is entirely consistent with my own. I also taught in the middle school at Columbus Academy for six years before heading overseas with my family to Morocco, and more recently at Welsh Hills School in Granville, Ohio. I would like to work with students one-on-one through the summer months, perhaps once or twice per week.

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 am NYS-certified (Permanent) for N, K & Gr 1-6 and have over 30 years teaching experience. Most of my elementary teaching experience is with Sixth grade; however, I have also taught third, fourth and fifth as well. With one year's exception, my teaching has been entirely in private schools.
Currently, I am teaching middle school at the Welsh Hills School, in Granville. Middle school at WHS includes sixth grade. I live in New Albany. My strengths are social studies, language arts, math and study skills.
I am a middle school teacher with over thirty years of classroom experience. I am particularly strong in literature/reading, grammar and composition, history and research skills. I also teach math, though not beyond algebra.
