Hopkins, MN

Elementary Reading/Math Tutor



I'm a 62 year old man with over 23 years experience in in education. I have worked primarily with elementary aged kids and prefer this age group. Most of my professional experience has involved special needs children with the following diagnosis; EBD, ASD, FAS, seizure disorder as well as a variety of Neural-Biological issues. All of my 15 years of professional experience has come in elementary school settings. I have volunteered through the Ameri_Corps Reading Tutoring program for one school year where 22 of the 27 kids I worked with attained their grade level reading goals.
My best skill is in making relationship with kids. I am a very engaging person and kids like me and generally want to perform well for me. I know how to bring out their best in a fun and encouraging way.
As you may know, working in this field doesn't pay that great and anyone who has done it for any length of time does so because of their passion for teaching. I have that passion. My biggest payoff is to see the look of comprehension that come across a kids face as they start to get something they've been struggling to grasp.


While I do have a few years of Community College experience, in the mid-80's, I do not have a college degree.
