I would love to introduce myself to you with just a bit about who I am. I have 4 children of my own, high school age and older, so I know the importance of helping them to succeed in, and even love, school.
Most recently I completed a full year teaching English Lit, as well as English language skills to foreign exchange students, at the high school level (2015-2016).
It was a fabulous teaching experience at a local high school, filling in as a full-time, year-long substitute. I took on a fast-pasted, intense project that had me reading and analyzing numerous novels and plays before teaching them to my 9th through 12th grade students.
I developed my own lessons, tests and projects for the classes, and was thrilled with the great responses the students had to the literature. I made each class a guarantee that even if they thought they were not going to like the books, poems and plays (which included Shakespeare and Homer), I would help them to find something that each one of them would like. It was an amazing experience.
My certification, under the department of Education, is in school counseling. Prior to teaching and subbing in several school districts, I counseled juvenile delinquents and their families at a residential facility. My experience also includes working with families and children with special needs, including many children on the autism spectrum. I have a passion for connecting with people, whether it be through teaching or counseling, and quickly build a great rapport with students of all ages.
My undergraduate degree is in the field of Psychology. II was a clinical counselor for teenagers in a residential facility, counseling students ages 11 through 19.
As a teacher of English Literature at the high school level, I spent a year of grading, editing, and otherwise assisting students (some of whom were English language learners) with their written work. Proofreading work has always been a strong suit of mine. Editing someone's work is like a word search game, or an "I Spy" game, which is actually fun for me.
I think you will find it easy to talk to me, ask questions and have a good time - even when it's over homework! I love to take on the challenge of helping others to see the excitement that life - and education! - holds. I welcome any questions you have for me about myself, my qualification, experience, etc. I would love to introduce myself to you with just a bit about who I am. I have 4 children of my own, high school age and older, so I know the importance of helping them to succeed in, and even love, school.

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.
