There is nothing more rewarding than watching "the light bulb come on" after a student finally gets it! You almost want to do a dance to celebrate. As a teacher, I find the best method of teaching includes finding out what each student's learning style is - and every student has one. Once that key is found, learning becomes adventurous - and even enjoyable :) Though I have successfully helped students in many traditional K - 12 classrooms from Ohio to the Carolinas, I find that tutoring presents the best opportunity to discover just what it is that will help each student learn.
I became a teacher because of a teacher in my own life who exemplified the personal responsibility and duty it takes to be effective in the lives of students. I went on to receive two bachelor's degrees, one from The Ohio State University in History (my favorite subject), and one from Calvary Chapel Bible College in Theology and Biblical Studies (my other favorite subject). I received my State Licensure to teach from Ohio Dominican College, and even continued on to study Hebrew at the Master's level from Ashland Theological Seminary. (Hopefully I will finish that one day!) I have studied many different foreign languages because I enjoy English so much. It is my favorite subject to tutor. Along with math. And history. And reading. And how can I forget Bible? And biology. And...well, you see the picture. I really, really, really was born to teach! I look forward to meeting you and your son and/or daughter soon!

I enjoy gardening and growing my own food so much! It is as rewarding for me as teaching is :) I also like to catch fish and reel those fin-feathered flippers in! And then fry them up in a pan! (I get my husband to clean them, of course..) I enjoy playing the piano, writing short inspirational stories (some not so short....), and I like to study foreign languages.
