About Gayle

I began my career in education in 1990 as a high school science teacher. Since then, I have worked with young people in many areas of education including marine life instruction at Sea World, GED prep, special education grades K-12 and youth ministry. Currently, I am tutoring kindergarten students in reading and math at Greer Elementary.

My approach in working with children, whether in a classroom, in one-on-one tutoring, or in mentoring is to be very deliberate in finding out where they are. Within that process I endeavor to understand that child's particular learning style. That information helps assist me in knowing how best to proceed in ways that are much more effective than a one-size-fits-all approach. The six years I spent working in special education enabled me to hone my ability to perceive the uniqueness of the individual learner as well as gain skills that facilitate the learning process.

I am comfortable teaching any subject through middle school (my own children are in middle school). At the high school level, I am delighted to tutor in biology and earth science (including AP), o.k. with chemistry and physics. Language arts goes well for me and history/civics is fine. Can assist in music instruction for voice and piano. I am certainly open to discussing other possibilities, like SAT prep.

I am passionate about learning and am dedicated to assisting others. I would be glad to explore with you how I can help your child get the most out of their education.
