I have over 40 years experience teaching children from grades 1 to 10th grade. I spent the majority of my teaching career in middle school teaching 6th through 8th graders math and language arts. Math is my strength, and I believe that learning should be fun so I try to incorporate games into my lesson plans whenever it is feasible. I love the experience of working one on one with a student, and value the time that I get to know the student as well as the family. I am always available to meet you before tutoring to make sure that I am a good match for your child.
I love developing a relationship with the student and his/her family. For example, since I retired in 2011, I have been tutoring a then 2nd grader who is now in 10th grade. I feel like part of the family and that means a lot to me since my only son and his family live in Florida.

After discussing the students needs with the parents, I usually try to take an informal assessment to understand the level the student is comfortably working on and develop a plan for what the student needs to accomplish to meet his/her goals.
