My philosophy

I have many years of teaching experience in all types of environments with all types of students. As a substitute in several districts for many years, I have been in all types of schools and classrooms. I have also taught in a private high school, college, the business world, and in a children's hands on science museum. My background is a broad brush of many different teaching experiences and I bring this experience to the table with each student I work with.

I began my teaching in the social science areas of Economics, Government (Political science) and Sociology and through additional schooling I have become certified in Psychology, AP U.S. History, World History, as well as AP Biology, AP Earth Science, Chemistry and Physics. I also love to write and have taught literature, composition, creative writing, and Argument and Rhetorical Analysis. I particularly like to help students analyze and improve their study skills and have been quite successful at this.

See an example of my work where I wrote an explanation of Active Transport for the Biology.

My tutoring area is between South Elgin and the north side of Aurora. Unfortunately, Naperville is just too far away to include.

If chosen, I will do my best to help your child succeed at his/her highest level possible.
