I am currently a substitute teacher for all grades. I have 12+ years experience working with families that require more supports and have individuals with more challenges than the average. I love watching the "aha" moment when someone gets it, when the connection is made and they are able to fully grasp something that alluded them before. I am looking for an opportunity to work with families to help them get more "aha" moments. Creative teaching is something that tutoring allows more of, since there are not the same time-test constraints as in the traditional school setting.
I learn concepts quickly and have always been able to explain concepts in several different ways.
I have always been good at English and literature, as I understood it and it came easily to me. I am a public speaker and have extensive experience with both oral and written language.
I enjoy finding interesting ways to grab and keep students' attention and have a way of presenting information that helps students to connect with the concepts being taught.

I find the story of nations and people all around the globe very interesting. I remember facts and find connections easily and relish the chance to teach history courses.
English has always been a subject that comes easily to me. I achieved the highest GPA in my English courses, earning the English award. I have extensive experience writing research papers as well as proofing papers in college and graduate studies and for a few colleague's books.
Geography has always intrigued me. So much so, that I have traveled throughout the US as well as in Latin America, Europe and Africa. Languages and cultures were so interesting to me that I have done language learning though immersion within a few cultures and languages and majored in Cross-Cultural Studies in college.
Math and algebra are not my favorite subjects, but I am a quick study and can catch concepts well enough to assist other in the same. I have spent the past 2 years tutoring high school students, primarily with their algebra (Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2).
I studied classical voice in high school and have participated in several competitions. I continue to sing weekly at my church and for special events (weddings, funerals, sporting events, etc.).
