I am passionate about teaching communication, whether it be reading, writing, speaking or listening! I worked as photojournalist for 6 years before staying home to raise my three kids. Once they got to be school-age, I decided to combine my love of working with kids (junior high youth group leader for 10 years) and my love of learning by earning my Master's in education. I have taught 5th and 6th grade general education (all subjects) as well as 8th grade English/language arts. My expertise has been helping students, as well as my own children, to be successful in reading comprehension despite learning difficulties and special education needs. I would love to help your student to gain confidence in any area of English-reading strategies for text comprehension, vocabulary and grammar study, or writing skills and strategies. I am also able to tutor upper elementary reading. I am a firm believer that all students can learn; the key is determining how they learn best, and making learning fun.
