I have been tutoring children since 1980. I love doing it and have had a lot of success teaching children. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy our lessons too. I have a great deal of respect for homeschooling and prefer tutoring those who are home-schooled. I am very good with shy or nervous children. I'm also good with children who have become discouraged and dislike doing schoolwork. I have 11 students I'm tutoring now, from my youngest student who is 4 years old, up to one who is 15 years old (I've been helping the 15-year-old since he was 10), and one adult guitar students. My after-school hours and weekends are quite full now, so I'd like to get homeschooling students or children I can work with during the day some other way.
