Dedicated educator with 30 years of experience, focused on STEM. Creative lesson planning incorporating the use of instructional technology to support students’ success in the 21st century.

Methodology

I am an experienced classroom teacher for 30 years. My knowledge combined with my experience facilitating learning among my students from specialized tutoring and group tutoring makes me well positioned to support a community through science tutoring. I have worked in many diverse learning environments over my career and have continuously evolved my teaching style to meet the needs of my students through utilizing digital tools, data, and listening deeply to my students to understand what would best facilitate their learning. I am hopeful that I can bring these experiences to each person looking for that one to one, or group learning experience.
