I am excited to be a tutor because I enjoy helping others reach their academic goals. I have been an educator for over 25 years. I served as an elementary classroom teacher as well as an adult education teacher for 15 years, and for the last 15 years, I have been a building administrator. Currently, I am a 5th grade teacher with Columbus City Schools, and I have a doctorate degree in educational management and leadership.

Although I have been an administrator, my passion continues to be helping students learn and helping them reach their highest potential. Even as a principal, I often worked with small groups of students, offering whatever they need to be successful in the classroom. Working with teachers is enjoyable to me, as well, and my future goals include teaching at the university level, helping students learn how to be exceptional teachers.

I am married and together, we have 8 wonderful children, ranging in age from 18 to 40! I love animals, singing, baking, and relaxing at home with my family.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that all students can learn with time and effort. Excellent teaching and student mastery are products of positive relationships between students and teachers. I am a firm believer that teachers should teach in the way that students learn and not solely in the way that they prefer to teach. Effective teaching is about give and take, and once teachers realize that, the opportunities for success are endless.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a typical first session with a student, my goal would be to build a positive rapport by getting to know each other a little bit. I would try to determine things we have in common, and I would try to determine what the student is actually looking for in a tutor. My job is to help the student to be successful, and I would ask questions to find out what that means to the student.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I can help a student become an independent learner by teaching strategies that he or she can use in the future. I would teach that student skills that would encourage critical thinking and self-supporting habits.
