Teacher gives English lessons to middle school and high school students around the Boulder, Colorado area
Hello students! I am a certified teacher for the state of Colorado. I can give lessons involving English: writing, reading, literature comprehension, etc. My previous teaching experience spans three other states: Michigan (where I received my Bachelor Degree in Secondary Education focusing on English and history from Central Michigan University in 2006); Florida (9th grade English), and Indiana (middle school writing and high school English).
I am an enthusiastic teacher who greatly enjoys her subjects and I have been told that my enthusiasm can be catchy. Working one on one with students helps me to create lesson plans around specific individual needs, focusing on what is needed the most. I like to create creative lesson plans that have as much hands-on learning as possible (which I realize isn't always possible in English and history!). Tutoring is a two way street for me. Meaning I take into consideration what the student enjoys and how he or she learns best when I make my lesson plans.
