I am a certified K-6 teacher with 7 years of middle school teaching experience in both science and English. I also spent a year as an intern in a public elementary school working with every grade level as well as teaching summer school to incoming 4th graders.
My greatest accomplishment is teaching students to enjoy reading. I can assist your child in any subject from elementary school through 8th grade with an emphasis on reading and writing skills. My teaching style is interactive and dynamic. Whether assisting with a specific project or long-term learning goals, I am confident I can help your child with the skills and strategies needed for success.
I have a Masters degree in Elementary Education from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT.
I hold a professional level teaching certification from the State of Connecticut.
I have spent 7 years teaching science and language arts in the 6th grade as well as a year in a public elementary school interning across all grade levels.
I have successfully taught summer school as well for students from age 8 through 14.
Although my primary subject is science, I have spent several years teaching summer school math and math intervention. This has allowed me to perfect strategies that are proven and fun. I have any number of games to ensure we are learning and maximizing our time together. One game is so engaging that a 9 yr old client completed 2,000 problems, voluntarily, in a two week period. Repetition is necessary to be successful in cementing math skills at the elementary age.
