Hello, my name is Candice. I have been teaching for over 25 years. I love helping people learn. My passion is to help people understand things that they struggle with. I have helped people learn to speak English, learn to read, learn calculus, pass their ACT, or even discover their love of math and algebra. I have experience teaching all ages from pre-school to college. I love the one-on-one learning environment that tutoring allows. I also will work with small groups of students who need to learn the same thing. I am willing to help home school families and groups.

I have extensive experience in most subjects. I have two master degrees in teaching. I love teaching and I am dedicated to helping students reach their fullest potential. I know what works with students. I use the newest, most effective researched based practices to help students discover their love of learning.

I have created my own curriculum for reading and learning English. I also have access to many resources to help you or your child learn using the best methods for THEM. No two people learn the same way. I want to find out the learning styles that best work for you so that I can support your learning.

I am a lifelong learner myself. I believe the best way to help students learn is to ignite their passion for learning. I also know that in order for students to be successful they must enjoy what they are doing.

I look forward to helping you!

I have been teaching all levels of English for over 20 years. I like helping students break apart English so they can become better at reading, speaking, listening, and writing. I think English can be very challenging for students no matter what the level is. I also think that the more you read the better you read and the better you read the more you read.

Let me help your child discover what they are passionate about so they can be reading things that are well written about their passions so they to can become a passionate reader and writer.
