Experienced Trainer and Encourager

When it comes to writing a paper or preparing a presentation/speech, I have the easiest way to get you to your goal. I have a way of explaining subjects in a different manner that help you to understand to big picture and the little snapshots along the way. To be honest, I struggled in grade school and high school. Teachers gave up on me; I fell between the cracks and was passed year after year. In my senior year in high school, an English teacher and a school psychologist gave me attention and my C and D grades went to A's and B's. I made the Honor Roll for the first time ever! I started enjo [more]

Language Arts, English, Reading, Social Sciences, Special Needs

As a language arts teacher, I pride myself on how may gains my students make in a year in the subject of writing. We spend an entire 40 minutes of our block together focusing on the craft and structure of writing through the use of writing workshop. This gives students an opportunity to learn how to write for multiple purposes. My love of teaching stems from a lifetime of learning. As a veteran educator, I know individual attention can significantly impact student achievement. Throughout my ten years of teaching, I have had the privilege of giving students the knowledge, tools, and strateg [more]

Academic Writing, College Essays and Test Prep, Grammar, B.A., M.Ed

During my years of teaching high school English, tutoring writing at DePaul University, and as a private tutor, I've helped students with all kinds of English homework assignments.
