Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have had 16 years of experience in teaching English to junior high school students. I retired from my position at Mohave Valley Junior High School May of 2008. Since that time, I have been tutoring four children from one family, ages five to seventeen. I have been very effective to teaching each child on a one-to-one basis, and each child raised his/her grade to B or A in English. I enjoy working with students who are either excell in the subject matter or are lagging behind.
