I am committed to my students and their learning. My passion for teaching comes from wanting each student I teach succeed in their own individual learning. I know when I have done my job when I see the "light bulb" come on when a student understands a concept I teach. I graduated with an elementary education degree, and I have been teaching for seven years. I am a National Board Certified Teacher in reading and language arts. I know that it takes hard work, patience, and commitment to achieve and attain goals.
I specialize in elementary (k-6th), reading, math, grammar, spelling, vocabulary and phonic. I use a variety of differentiated instruction to teach for understanding and use hands-on materials with real life application (when appropriate). I consistently monitor the progress of student learning by using a variety of assessments and collaboratively work with parents on students goals.
I hold myself and my students to a very high standard. I expect my students to work hard, be patient, and make a commitment to achieve their goals. While I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, and I am flexible on making up the time. To ensure student success, I do require that they have a quiet and comfortable study space.
I look forward to hearing from you and to support you in achieving your learning goals!
