I gear my lessons to my students. A high school student struggling with reading will receive personalized instruction as well as a university student who needs support with writing academic papers. I attended St. Olaf College, Montana State University and studied psychology at Harvard University. I was selected as Teacher of the Year by students at Bozeman High--graduation speaker three times. I attempt to create a warm, supportive environment and rock solid (even FUN!) strategies for my students to use so that they will become proficient in the areas they seek help, I am positive, warm and want to help you achieve your maximum, no matter if that's in middle school composition or academic reading in the university. My lesson structure will depend on which strategies or help you need.
In the areas of reading and writing, my typical students scored at a rate of 3x beyond the traditional growth registered by end of the year exams. I enjoy teaching a wide range of students and student needs. I have tutored MSU students, Exchange students, and students who need a bit a remediation in English in order to move onto the next levels. I also can assist with letters of application to colleges/ universities. One of my joys is knowing and watching your self esteem increase as your mastery of material become evident!!
Please see notes above---
Here's my resume--- please don't hesitate to ask me questions about it! It didn't load well-and I lost the formatting--- this program will not allow me to fix it.
