Bio

As a former elementary school teacher, I have experience teaching all subjects, including music, which was my emphasis in college. However, most of my teaching experience comes from teaching GED skills to adults, preparing them to later achieve college degrees.

As a former elementary school teacher, I have experience teaching all subjects, including music, which was my emphasis in college. However, most of my teaching experience comes from teaching GED skills to adults, preparing them to later achieve college degrees.

I really enjoy seeing a student’s success and love cheering them on through the process. My education also allows me to focus on basic areas of all subjects that may be lacking and causing difficulties for GED students. I have studied many different methods to help these students. There is more than one way to achieve success. It is my job to discover that method and ensure success.

I taught elementary math for 5 years and GED math for 8 years, helping over fifty adults achieve their goal of attaining their GED’s. I have a degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University.

I am skilled in teaching from the basics of reading and understanding phonics and English spelling rules all the way to advanced reading comprehension skills. In grammar, I have taught diagramming sentences and have edited several books for nonfiction authors.

I taught art in the public school system for a year and have been a professional artist for over a decade. I teach art on the basis of Betty Edwards, author of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Many of my students have gone on to be very proficient artists and have won awards and accolades for their own art.

I am focusing on GED and college students specifically and will teach anyone aged 18 and over. If you match that profile, please contact me for possible tutoring times. I am available most evenings, as well as Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
