I am an educator with an empty nest. I am happy to assist your children with their academic needs. For 9 years, I taught multicultural children at public elementary schools. Many of these young students earned college scholarships and county awards and all of them made personal gains. Much of my work was assisting children with test taking skills. I have seen the exams and I understand what is necessary for your child to pass them. I am a volunteer mentor and tutor with Apple Student Services, AmeriCorps and Teen Challenge. For me, the most important part of studying is learning to appreciate and love a subject. This makes education a joy. I have reliable and roomy transportation. I am willing to assist your child at your home, school, place of worship or the library. As an educator and a published journalist, I posses great communication skills. I am enthusiastic, dependable, innovative and caring. I am ready to help your child succeed.
