As a teacher with over 20 years of classroom experience, I have had the pleasure of encouraging students to succeed to their highest potential through in class studies as well as after school time tutoring. I feel that learning not only encompasses work and dedication, but also the satisfaction and joy of reaching one's personal goals.
I am proficient in pre-k through middle school subjects. My objective is to help students reach their immediate and long term objectives, keeping them challenged, but not overwhelmed. I emphasize review and strategies personalized to each student and provide periodic review assessments and progress reports.
I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Education, a masters degree in education and am a certified teacher. My experience ranges from preschool through high school. During my time tutoring students, I have used instructional strategies such as differentiated instruction methods that involve scaffolding of material to break down information in a more easily understood format. Real life application of material is also another technique that I feel is important to helping a student to integrate and retain information. Summarization of material in smaller chunks as a student learns material and then applying that to new material allows them to retain knowledge.
It is important for me to have a good understanding of student's needs and objectives. For that reason, I offer a free brief consultation meeting with parents/caregivers and student.
Punctuality is important to garner the optimum experience and I will make every effort to arrive at our meeting on time. I would also ask that students honor this commitment for me and themselves. Cancellations must be made at least 2 hours ahead of the appointed time or payment is required.
I am happy to travel to within 20 miles of my home to tutoring locations.

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.
