Dear Families,

I am currently teaching a mixed class of second and third grade in a private school. This is my seventh year at this school. In past years here I have taught Kindergarten and First Grade. Our classes are always multi-age grouped. Prior to being here I taught at another private school where I taught fourth grade for two years and second grade for four years.

I taught gifted Kindergarten for one year at my local public school and was a substitute teacher in ten public schools for four years. Whew!

I love teaching and my students have made great progress through the years - especially in reading! I can provide your child(ren) with a solid foundation in reading skills. Many students are missing important basic elements that they need to be successful. These skills also are necessary in math, science, social studies, etc.

I have tremendous patience and am always professional. I welcome the opportunity to work with you and your child(ren).

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.

Phonics

I have taught phonics for over 14 years. I have taught Kinder - gr 3. I know the importance of a strong foundation rich in phonics to master basic reading. I have my own materials and can help with homework and studying.

Proofreading

I am qualified to teach grammar to young students. I have significant experience as I taught grades K-2 for fourteen years. My students learned how to form sentences, when to capitalize, and the basic parts of speech. They benefited from many creative activities that I planned and showed gains in the standardized achievement tests near the end of each school year.
