ExperienceI am a mature, award-winning certified teacher with 15 years of successful teaching and tutoring experience in a wide variety of subjects, including English, math, Special Education, ESL, homework assistance, online classes, and ACT/SAT/PSAT/TOEFL prep. My students have ranged in age from five to adult, and have included typical, gifted, and international students, as well as students with issues including attention deficit, learning disability, cognitive impairment, and ASD. I get results by assessing the student's abilities and learning style, and creating a program tailored to the individual learner. I have a wealth of teaching materials appropriate for every age and level. I am also a meticulous writer and editor, and have served as a college admissions coach by helping students with test prep., college essays, resumes, and applications. Whether you're looking to catch up, keep up, or get ahead, put my passion, knowledge, and experience to work helping you achieve your goals!
