I am a tutor specializing in gifted, enrichment, Spanish and English classes. I teach from elementary aged to adult students. I am retired with 31 years teaching experience in elementary grades, one through five. I have also taught middle school, high school, and university students. My goal is to instill in students a love of learning by making learning fun. I create a personalized plan based on their needs and interests using various teaching methods. I start students at the level where they are comfortable and then encourage and praise their work in order to build their confidence. This helps them to progress quickly and move on to the level at which they should be. I love children and always go above and beyond to help them be successful.
I teach grades, kindergarten through middle school, in reading, language arts, writing, math, science and beginning level Spanish. I have had 12 years experience in teaching gifted/advanced students and I tutor advanced students by creating a personalized plan of challenge/enrichment work for them.
