20+ years of experience in public, private and homeschool classroom settings, as well as extensive private tutoring in grades K - 9th
I believe in making concepts very clear for students, both visually and verbally, which involves breaking concepts down to the most basic elements. Being friendly and approachable, yet firm, gives students the confidence to ask if they do not understand, and boundaries, so they have the independence to freely function in the classroom. Presenting concepts in a fun way keeps students motivated, interested and involved.
