"Technology, Language Arts, Reading and Writing "
After years of spending time learning the art behind literature I began my journey of learning the basics behind Language Arts and Literature.

At the last minute I had to change my degree to just English and I still graduated Magna Cum Laude from Chaminade University in Honolulu, HI. I have 2 years experience work in Honolulu school systems assisting teachers with students with varying needs. My undergraduate education back... ... More
From the moment I read Dr. F's profile I knew she was "the one". Her education credentials, background and experience speak for themselves but meeting her in person is even further convincing of her tremendous talent with teaching children. Dr. F took the time to ask questions to understand exactly what areas my son needs to focus on. She is very well organized and spends a great deal of time preparing his personal tailored lesson each week. She even developed special math and writing games for him because he asked her to "make it fun". She is also extremely prompt with posting her lesson notes so I can see exactly what they worked on ... it's amazing how much ground they cover in just one hour! In only five weeks I can see a tremendous improvement in my son's homework and test performance and his overall outlook on learning. Dr. Colleen F is truly a blessing to us and we are so thankful to have found her.

"Linda P: history, English, and French"
I have 7 years experience teaching at the high school level. When history is taught as a relevant part of our lives and culture, it becomes easy, and I notice students making connections between historical events and people with their own lives and experience.
French was my minor because it is such a beautiful language that I find brings a better understanding of English, and vice versa. I have built up my own curriculum for French 1 and 2, and have excellent pronunciation and grammatica... ... More
