I am a certified teacher in grades K-6, and I have eight years of teaching and tutoring experience. My Master's Degree is in Literacy Education from Hunter College in New York City. I am passionate about teaching literacy to young children. I love teaching and watching children grow and achieve. I taught second grade for five years and first grade for two years. I also taught remedial reading to students in grades 1-6. As an experienced teacher, I am familiar with the Common Core Standards and the curriculum in Connecticut schools.

I will provide your child with individualized instruction that will allow him or her to achieve in school. I will also modify how I teach the material depending on your child's learning style. I can help with homework, and I can also create and teach my own lessons depending on your child's academic needs.

I am flexible with days and times for tutoring as well as location. I will work with your family in order to help your child succeed academically.

I would love the opportunity to work with your family and to help your child succeed. I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher with eight years of experience. I taught first and second grades as well as remedial reading in grades K-5. I also have five years of experience tutoring students in grades K-8.

Phonics

I am a certified teacher in grades K-6, and I have a master's degree in literacy education (birth-grade 6). I have experience teaching first and second grades as well as remedial reading, therefore I am very knowledgeable in teaching phonics. I have many resources and tools that I would be able to use in order to help children with phonics.
