Tutoring Style and/or Experience

ACADEMIC COACH - MATH, LANGUAGE ARTS, SCIENCE, STUDY SKILLS, TEST PREP, ORGANIZATION, ADHD - 5TH THROUGH 9TH GRADES. I am a member of Mensa, hold a masters degree in education, and have ten years of teaching experience within the local public school system and the non-traditional classroom environment. I work with students in grades 5 through 9 and provide coaching in study skills, time management, organization, test prep, math, reading, literature, and science. My masters thesis was on helping students with ADHD thrive in middle school; consequently, I have a unique understanding of students who exhibit these symptoms (though I enjoy working with all students).

I believe students can and do succeed when provided with individualized, one-on-one instruction. I bring compassion, enthusiasm, patience, and high expectations to each student; I consider myself more of an "academic coach" than a "tutor." I work diligently to understand each student's unique learning style, to brainstorm best methods for conveying information, and to generate creative and engaging solutions in order to empower my students to succeed on their own.

I must say that this is the most wonderful job in the world for me. I get to become each student's coach, cheerleader, and greatest fan! I get to help kids and families share that "aha!" moment which makes learning fun.

I serve students in Alpharetta and Milton, GA. I always provide complementary interview sessions in your home, and I hope you will contact me to see whether it's a fit!
