My students learn how to learn.

My career as a writing teacher began with the invitation to offer a Young Authors Program for elementary ages 7-10, an invitation that I accepted and found very rewarding for both writers and me. My career continued with many invitations to offer Middle School creative writing workshops with the Oregon Writing Festival, invitations which I gratefully accepted. My university undergraduates and IB students benefit from my teaching of the following courses: Interpreting Literature and Writing Commentary, Rhetoric and Writing Good Argument, and Research and Writing.

Dedicated Tutor for Math, English, and Study Skills

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

Passionate & Patient Tutor of Social Sciences, Reading, & Writing

As your tutor, I would seek to help you accomplish not only the goals you set for yourself, but to help you accomplish goals that you might not have realized. In our world today, it is not enough to simply have received a college degree. One must seek to set oneself apart and go above and beyond the minimum requirements for class. Juts as my professors did for me, I will encourage you and push you to best of your abilities. Do you need help in classes such as History, Geography, Religion,... [more]

Experienced and Patient Tutoring for Homeschooling Families

I told each of my children that they were not allowed to leave home until they could write well. I graded a lot of papers for my professors and in my own classes and saw that so many people could not write in a way that could communicate. The trick with writing well is to boil things down to the most important elements. I can help with organization, sentence structure, and creative writing. I personally have written everything from a dissertation to song lyrics. The same elements go into all writing. It is just a matter of learning them. The easiest way to help you learn to write is to work th [more]

Dyslexia teacher using the Barton System, Reading, and Math teacher

I am currently certified as an elementary teacher with certification through Oregon as of 2017, and I teach remedial reading and math part time at an elementary school. I also teach students with dyslexia using the Barton Reading and Spelling System. Dyslexia is the main reason a bright child has a difficult time learning to read, spell, and write. I developed an interest in teaching dyslexic students because after spending many years teaching reading, I found that about one in five children... [more]
