In addition to a Fundamentals of University Teaching certificate from the University of Waterloo and a teaching certification from the State of Michigan in English and History (grades 6-12), I have over ten years of experience in teaching and tutoring students from preschool age to adult education in reading, writing, Social Studies, and elementary-level math.
My approach to tutoring is that learning can work for you. For that reason, I work with you, tailoring learning materials to your learning styles, interests, and communication style. For younger students, I often prepare individualized learning sheets and games. My editing approach is to discuss with you each suggested change in your paper, asking for your feedback, though I sometimes make comments in Word for urgent editing requests. I am informed and inspired by multiple intelligences theory, as well as practical experience.
