I believe every person can be successful when learning, they just need the right person to help them discover what is holding them back. I am able to quickly discern what a student needs, whether that student is in elementary school, just learning to read and write or a high school student getting ready to take an important standardized test.
I am a substitute teacher and retired attorney. I have extensive experience with persuasive writing, editing and test preparation. As a substitute teacher I come in contact with a large number of students, all of whom have different learning styles. I am very good at determining what individual students need to be effective.
