I just moved to South Carolina after retiring from 16 years of classroom teaching in grades K-8. I am a world traveler and a lover of knowledge. I have been told by students and parents alike that I hold high standards but am encouraging and my students know they can achieve these goals. I am a firm believer in fun while learning, and spend much of my time making sure students believe in themselves and are having fun. This does not mean we goof around, but laughter is always an option! I enjoy connecting with my students and finding out what lights them up. That way I can focus my tutoring on what interests them, making the topic more relevant and therefore more likely to stick. I enjoy math and am very comfortable with all elementary math, as well as any other elementary subjects. I love computers and am very comfortable using them. I am positive, gentle and love to see children take their own education and run with it. Let me help yours do that!

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 spent 16 years in the classroom working with all kinds of students. Most recently I spent 7 years at a school that attracted ADD and other students who struggled in the "sit down and be quiet" model of teaching. Last summer I felt I did not have enough knowledge of ADD/ADHD so I took the Simple ADD course offered by the ADD Coach Academy.
I spent 16 years teaching K-8th grades. I have been certified in both Ohio and North Carolina. I have my Masters in the Art of Teaching.
