I am a semi-retired teacher with twenty years of experience at all levels. I have taught elementary, middle, and high school. I have also taught English as a Second Language at adult learning centers and community colleges. Since officially retiring, I have had many private students with a wide range of needs, from kindergarten to university levels. I have really enjoyed this second phase of my teaching life, as it is really gratifying to discover the problem a student has and try to fix it. I have had a good success rate, rescuing students from Special Education, being held back, and even steering one failing middle school student through high school graduation. I have become good friends with the parents of many of these students.
I am currently conducting literacy trainings for employees at a local housing authority, and I enjoy being back in the classroom, but I have a lot of free time to pursue my private tutoring sessions.
I am a writer, so I believe my strongest skill is, of course, writing, and also reading, which I love. I believe in learning which doesn't end with graduation from formal studies, but continues throughout life. I also love to travel and have lived and taught and farmed in the West Indies and have visited Cuba and Africa several times. I believe in having a wide view of the world, its people, and cultures, and I find knowing how people from other parts of the world fascinating.
