I am a junior majoring in Elementary Education at IUP. I will graduate in May 2011 with my Bachelor's Degree. I have tutored before, and I have over 15 years of experience working with students of all ages (including adults).
I passed both PA certification exams for education (Praxis I & II); I have Act 34 and Act 114 Clearances, and I am insured throught the PA State Education Association.
I really enjoy the benefits that oftentimes can only be achieved through one-on-one or small group instruction. My strongest instructional areas are Language Arts and Math, but I am proficient in all subject areas. I know that I would be a benefit to students who are struggling with specific content areas or for those who want to maintain academic skills over the summer months.
Beginning in May, I will be available Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays, and Saturdays (day and evening), and beginning mid-June, I will be available Monday-Saturday (day and evening).
Being a mother myself, I realize the demands of a family, so I will work around times that are most convenient to you. I am willing to meet in your home or at a local library, coffee shop, etc. I am very flexible and believe that it is most important for me to know how the student learns best and adjust my teaching style accordingly.
In my personal time, I enjoy singing, writing, and spending time with my 5 children. I completed two children's stories in the past year, and I am working towards their publications.
