About Colleen

My experience with education began as a volunteer in my children's schools and sports programs. I went on to acquire a degree in education and now have over 10 years experience working with students with disabilities in a high school setting. In college, I learned teaching methods and standards appropriate for primary grades (K-5). My years working in a public school district allowed me to gain a wealth of experience with teaching methods applied across a variety of subjects, including (but not limited to) math, reading, and writing in small groups and one-on-one.

What I love about tutoring is that it allows a personal approach to teaching. It affords an opportunity for the teacher and student to relate in a more comfortable and friendly environment, focusing on specific subject matter that is relevant to the student's educational needs. As a tutor, I am able to provide direct instruction and help that cannot always be obtained in a traditional classroom setting. Most of all, I love knowing that through tutoring I am helping students to succeed.

I have long been an avid reader and writer and excelled in this subject in high school and college. I love all aspects of language. have studied linguistics and have an excellent understanding of English grammar and structure.

I'm ready to work for you and I would love the opportunity to help you improve your skills!
