About this tutor

Children can come year round before school, after school, get help with homework, during breaks or during the summer to continue working on keeping their skills sharp or too improving their skills at any level in any subject matter taught at the Elementary Level.

It's rewarding! 30 years  plus in the classroom, I enjoy seeing the light come on in the children eyes, when they finially get it, know and understand that there is joy in learning. When I don'st hear, this is boring, it's stupid, I don't need it anyway, I'll never use it. And at the end, I will hear them say this is fun. Then I know that I have made a different in a child's life! This is my true reward in what I do as a teacher. Never give up on a child!

How did you get started teaching?

As child I've always had my make believe classroom, teaching students as I was taught. After graduating from high school. I got an opportunity to go to Job Corps; I was afforded to take classes from the University of Oregon. After completing my academic trainingin Job Corps. I was accepted into the Upward Bound Program at the University of Oregon. So, that's how I got my traning in Elentmentary Education. Graduated, filled out an aplication that same year, had an interview with School District 4j, the next week I was hire as a 3rd grade teacher. That's how I got started.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students in a regular classroom setting. Skills ranging from below Pre-K to above K-6th grade. I have worked with students in an afterschool program who were having a difficult time keeping up with assignments in classes, sometimes I worked, one on one or in small groups with students.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A recent event with may grandson, went with no intentions, but to drop off his jacket; he had other expectations for granny being there. As I was making sure that he remember to take the jacket home, he blurted out, "are you going to stay," I said, "why do you ask, do you want me to stay," he said, "yes." I assured him that I couldn't today, but let him know that I would make time the next day. He said, "Okay! But be here at 9:50 am, that's when I have reading." I was so proud of him, wanting his granny to be a part of his reading period. That was a fond moment for me!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

My advice is not to judge a teacher on how he/she looks, sound or the color of their skin, they all have different learning styles and teaching styles; ask question of what is permissible or not permissible in the environmental setting, what expectatations do they have of you as a student. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Is she qualified, is she trust worthy, can he/she really help, will my needs be shared with other adults?
