While earning my undergraduate degrees (Spanish, political science, education and social studies)I completed courses in comparative politics when I attend the University of Keele in Staffordshire, England.


Literature

Taking several literature classes in college I have always had a fondness for the classics, not only American, but also enjoying European, Latin and South American writers. English and literature go hand in hand thus I find literature a robust subject area with many paths of explanation and discourse.


World History

World history is ever changing and it is exciting to learn and explore other parts of the world. I earned a history degree at Keele Univerity through Bowling Green State University with a concentration of comparative politics.


Proofreading

ACT English

Test preparation is critical and one on one sessions allows the learner to be exposed to a more meaningful exchange of information. English is a critical part of the ACT and I find that my strengths are in English after completing a double Master's in Literacy and Teaching English as a Second Language.


Elementary Math

For the past 4 years I have had the opportunity to work with wonderful elementary teachers in their classrooms. This has resulted in exposure to many strategies of math instruction especially among young learners grades K-5. As a result I have incorporated elementary math and foreign language. It is critical to cross connect multiple content areas in the classroom.

ADHD

I have had 7 years of experience working with children of all ages with ADD/ADHD as well as epilepsy in classroom settings to private home tutoring sessions. I find that the one on one can be extremely beneficial in that the focus is primarily on the student. The distractions are very limited.

Often parents find themselves confused when faced with supporting and helping a child with dyslexia. Parents often do not feel they have adequate knowledge of dyslexia or are not aware of the techniques and strategies that help. After completing courses in literacy and earning my double Master's (English and TESOL) I am confident in benefiting those dealing with this type of learning disability. By utilizing specialized methods and carefully planned strategies, I can help and assist students beat difficulties caused by dyslexia. Act now to get dyslexia help for you or your child. Early intervention is directly linked to a better outcome.

Receiving an A on the capstone intrigued me to complete a classics literature course that provided historical events from a literary perspective. I also received an A for the classics literature summer course.
