Collaboration between student and tutor is awesome!

So far I have taught for 27 years! I have 3 wonderful sons; they are 17, 20, and 25. For 20 years we've lived in a suburban community near Allentown, PA. I am part PA Dutch and believe in working hard for my students.

My specialties are helping students brush up on English, proofreading, ACT Reading preparation, SAT Reading prep, TOEFL prep, grammar, literature, reading, spelling, vocabulary, and special needs. I also am certified to tutor swimming and clarinet.

I trained in English, graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1988 with a Bachelor of Education. While I was there I was a member of the IUP Marching Band. After receiving my Instructional I certification, I got my first professional job for the school year. During the summer I worked as a Literacy tutor, a swim instructor, and a YMCA camp counselor.

I decided to attend a Master's program in the evenings at Shippensburg University, two hours away. After three years I graduated. At the same time I received my Instructional II certificate from the PA Department of Education. I received tenure and permanent certification while teaching and studying concurrently. I hold an Educational Specialist certificate in School Counseling as well.

I'm excited to tutor for Wyzant at my home office. Please take advantage of my experience and certifications. You might have to work on your Reading skills for the June SAT or even need help with spelling; for whatever your reason, major or minor, you can count on me to help you through. I'm here for you. I enjoy showing students via personal example that you can achieve anything!
