I spent twenty seven years as a teacher covering all grades Kindergarten through eight either as a classroom teacher or a reading teacher. My bachelor's degree is from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
I have a master's degree with a reading focus from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I have a master's degree in education administration from Marian University.
My main areas of interest in this tutoring position are in reading and general mathematics for elementary and middle grade students.
My approach is to begin by assessing needs of the student. Sometimes this is done informally and other times it is more of a formal, written process. Once we understand needs, then we can make a plan for moving forward.
Outside of education, I play guitar and steel guitar and restore old pinball and arcade games.
