About Tutor

I have been involved in education for ten years and love working with students of all ages (adults included!).

I have my master's degree and love to learn new things all the time.

When I am not working, I love being outside, working in my garden, reading, and taking care of my daughter.

I am a hard worker, dedicated, passionate, and always aim to make learning fun!

Experience

I have been a high school teacher for 10 years and love it! I make sure that my students are engaged and having fun while learning.

I was recognized as being a great teacher and offered a new position in my school to help other teachers in my building become better teachers. I have loved working with adults as well in this new position.

I have also worked with young children as well.

Teaching Approach

FUN!

Stories, conversation, props, models, and anything else that might be needed.

I want to make sure that I teach in a way that a student learns best so that may be different for each person.

For those that need more support, total body response is used so actions can help explain the terms that are being used. Pictures and props also help with basic understanding.

For those that are more experienced, having conversations with each other is the best way to learn. Movie clips, books, and songs can also help experienced learners sharpen their skills.
