I am so excited about meeting new learners. Not just so I can assist you but I always learn from my learners. Each session gives me an opportunity to learn more effective ways to teach and instruct. I meet people where they are at, by focusing on their strengths and "learning language" the troubled areas vanish!
I have lived all over the country, that built confidence to be able to work will all types of people.
I live for that moment when...WE FINALLY GET IT!!!

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I meet learners where they are.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I first pinpoint the way they learn and receive information. That is how I develop the tools they need to study.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By helping them organize their notes.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
With constant encouragement.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
We would go over it in different ways. I would have the student "teach" it back to me.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
Constantly have them ready and write. I would have them explain everything they are reading and work on their fluency and decoding.
