ExperienceI have been a certified K-5 teacher for the past 16 years. Previous to that, I was in the US Navy for seven years. As I have taught, I have developed and deepened a passion for teaching. I understand how each student learns different, and I'm always ready to work with you and your student in meeting the challenges you face.It is important for teachers to meet each student individually at his or her level. This is often a challenge in today's education environment because it is hard to meet the needs of individual students and even more so with a student who struggles in school. I stay focused on why a child wants to learn. I believe encouragement and motivation are keys to success for the student. If a child continues to be discouraged, has feelings of failure, continually struggles, and is reluctant, a strong dislike of school and learning occurs. As a tutor or teacher, I work to find that key to continue to motivate and encourage the student so they enjoy the learning process and the subject material. My teaching has involved students with ADD, ADHD, autism, behavioral disorders, and other learning disabilities, medical emergencies, and illnesses. I've worked with homebound students as well as gifted GATE learners and provided support to those with remediation needs. I'm available for tutoring of elementary and middle school levels of math, English, history, geography, science, and SSAT and ISEE test prep. In my free time, I enjoy fishing and sports.
