Part Time Tutor: Writing/English/Reading All Levels And All Subjects (K-8)
I graduated from the University at Albany, NY with a degree in Math and an MBA in Human Resources. After spending years in human resources management, I worked in higher ed for 16 years and was certified by the National Tutoring Association as an Academic Coach. I tutor middle school, high school, and college students, and formerly worked as a substitute teacher for middle school. I like to apply my education and experience to help students develop their skills, do their best work, achieve their goals, and ultimately find learning enjoyable. My approach is to guide and encourage, listening carefully to find successes we can build on. I strive to see how far the student can develop an answer or approach on his/her own. Finally, I like to be the kind of tutor and coach who touches my students' hearts, not just their minds, using what I've learned from my parents, godparents, teachers, Girl Scout leaders, and other mentors.
