My background in both business and education serves my students well, because I can offer the expertise needed to prepare for the SSAT/ISEE, ACT or the SAT, or focus on other needs such as state testing program preparation, or improving proficiency in a subject area. (I am certified K-12.) In particular, for secondary students, I can address language arts, critical reading, and writing requirements, and support those areas with examples from the pragmatic backdrop of what language arts and writing skills are needed to succeed today in college and in business. For younger students, my approach is to integrate interesting activities with the lesson plan and to match the lesson pacing to the student's level and learning style. I believe all students can improve with the right guidance and with application on their part. My goal is to help any age student reach his or her potential, so that he/she is prepared to excel academically now and, later, in a career. I have a Bachelors degree in English and a Masters in Education. I have experience teaching students of all ages including adults.
