Some Background

I have been involved education as long as I can remember. My parents were educators. They helped start a school, were on the board of another, and were founding board members of the North Dakota Home School Association. I started teaching at the age of thirteen, as a volunteer. I have taught professionally, for over fourteen years. I have coached soccer. I co-founded a school and taught a wide array of subjects there for three years, including Latin, Rhetoric, General Science, and History. For nearly twelve years, I have been an education consultant, tutor, and mentor.

I am prepared to tutor students in all subjects through high school, and I am well-versed in ACT and SAT preparation. I also do some college-level tutoring, particularly in English, Writing, Study Skills, and other humanities-related subjects. Feel free to ask for more details. I tutor adult students in a variety of subjects, and I have also had success in the past working with students who have a variety of "learning disabilities," including ADD/ADHD and dyslexia.

My particular specialties, in addition to ACT and SAT preparation, are in the liberal arts—reading comprehension, writing, logic & reasoning, and language studies, for example. I have had a great deal of experience helping students with their reading skills; I taught writing at the college level for five-and-a-half years; I have taught logic and rhetoric courses; and I have studied eight foreign languages at varying levels (Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Spanish, French, German, and Russian; German is my current focus). I have done ESL tutoring, though I do not have ESL certification.
