I have 14 years' experience teaching in Portland Public Schools, grades K-12. I am endorsed in the Art and ESL disciplines. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute. I also have a 5th Year Education degree from Portland State University. I taught Middle School Core and Art at Temple Beth Israel for 3 years on Wednesday nights. I have volunteered at KBOO radio for the last 30 years, and was recently elected to the Board of Directors there. I am also fluent in Spanish. I prefer to tutor grades 9-12 and College-level material. I have a laid back style, and can meet at your house, my house, or the library.

Public Speaking

As a teacher in Portland Public Schools for the last 14 years I am quite adept at Public Speaking. Eye contact, enunciation, tone and clarity are important factors in public speaking. Familiarity with your subject, so as not to be reading from notes, is important for flow and continuity of speech. I find some humor to be effective also.
