Math, Dyslexia, Sped, Unusual Situations.

I've worked with students to prepare them for the ACT, and scored in the top 90% in the English portion when I took the test myself. I love working with students and enjoy tackling unusual and difficult problems. I have a wide range of experience teaching, and I've worked with students of many different ages, backgrounds, and ability levels. I have a no-drama, tortoise-beats-the-hare approach to teaching, and no matter what your situation is, there's a good chance I've dealt with something like it before. I'm comfortable teaching and tutoring math through high school trigonometry. I am certi [more]

Veteran Literature and Writing Teacher Broadening Horizons for JK-12

I have taught all grades in high school so my experience with the grammatical components of the English section of the ACT are layered. I have also taught Juniors for many years, so i have much experience with this age group. I also find that through working on writing many of the questions asked in the ACT English portion of the test become easier. Since the English section focuses on skills such as grammar, syntax, structure, sometimes the holistic approach to writing turns on the light bulb. I am open to both traditional test prep work as well as more holistic practices. [more]
