I am an experienced educator with over thirty five years teaching and administrative experience in Florida schools. I have a Masters Degree in Reading
K through Twelve, a BA in Elementary Education
with certification in Early Childhood, and a Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership. Most of my career has been spent successfully remediating reading with students two or more years below their grade level in skills. I have taught all grades kindergarten
through fifth in the classroom and in special pullout classes and successfully tutored kindergarten through college level students. I currently am subbing in classes at kindergarten through twelfth grade.
As well as reading and writing
skills I can help students acquire the study skills
necessary to become successful in elementary, middle, high school, and college classes. I tutor all subjects kindergarten through 8th grade and Reading at all levels. I prefer to tutor Math
through eighth grade level only but have assisted high school and college level students in basic Math
. Difficulties in Social Studies
in Middle School and High School are often the result of poor reading or study skills. I can help with these. I can also assist in preparation for GED
testing and in test taking skills at all levels. I have experience and success in working with Learning Disabled students.
My approach in working with all students is to formally evaluate their reading level and try to learn their learning styles. I need to learn about a student's interests as well. As we work together I try to teach to learning strengths and strengthen the weaknesses to maximize progress. Studying about a student's areas of interest helps make learning enjoyable. I like to obtain permission to communicate with teachers of my students to tap their knowledge of the student and make him or her more successful at school. I can work with materials the student is using in class or provide my own to supplement or strengthen skills. Games with students through middle school level are used to break the rigors of one on one instruction and build skills in a fun manner. With all learning in all subjects, learning how to learn and enjoying it are requisite to positive results. Together my students and I achieve this.

This School year is ending, but your child's learning should not be ending. If your K-8 student was less than successful at Reading, Math, Writing, Science, or Social Studies this past year, now is the time to get some extra help. Study skills and learning
how to learn are an important part of what I do when working with your student. FCAT scores are in and you may not be satisfied with that...
