I am an experienced California credentialed teacher with many years of experience in all grades from Kindergarten through 6th grade.
I particularly enjoy teaching children to read. I personalize and design curriculum specific to each student's needs in order to help the student feel successful and to target the student's weaknesses.
I am qualified to teach all elementary school core subjects because I have a valid California elementary teaching credential.
I have also recently retired from working for a charter school where I supervised kindergarten through 8th grade homeschooled students in all subjects. I also have teaching experience in a traditional school setting.
I've taught over 100+ children to read over a lengthy teaching/parent volunteer career. My strength in teaching phonics and reading is my ability to analyze the areas in which a student is struggling and then to provide specific, directed instruction in these areas of difficulty.
I have successfully taught many children to read using phonics and sight words which are not phonetic. I personalize and individualize directed instruction for each student while encouraging and engaging the student in activities designed to help the student succeed and to gain confidence.
