I believe students learn best by doing, not by emulating. I encourage problem-solving and thinking for oneself. My approach is unstructured so that I may adapt my teaching to the individual learning style, and i have found, over the years, that one size does not necessarily fit all. I also like to incorporate real-life examples in to the lesson. For example, writing about something you know and love is more effective than my choosing a topic for you.
I am a published writer, to include writing grants totaling over $3M . I am also a figure skating coach which makes me high energy and fun. I teach physical therapy to cancer patients so I am patient. I have taught art classes to elementary and middle school children and have tutored inner-city Chicago children to pass their classes. I have been teaching, in many capacities, for 20 years.
