I have been tutoring all elementary subjects for 15 years as well as teaching school full time and yoga and pilates part time. I love to teach reading using a phonics and site word method that is extremely effective. I am an avid reader and I enjoy sharing my love of literature with students. I enjoy museums and all types of art and love to encourage a student's self expression and discovery through different art mediums. Science is another subject I love to teach and believe a hands on experience with materials and experimenting is the best and most engaging way to learn.
I am a certified Elementary teacher. I have 4 years teaching experience in public schools and eleven years teaching experience in private schools. I currently hold a valid Ga teaching license. I am currently employed at a private school where I teach and tutor students k- 6 th grade in all subjects. I graduated cum laude with a bachelors in elementary ed from Oglethorpe University.
I have been teaching or tutoring emergent and struggling readers using a combined phonics and site word technique for 15 years. I believe that a strong phonics foundation is crucial for all students in learning to read. I have had a 100% success rate in teaching phonics first then site words to emergent readers.
I have been using a combined phonics/sight word reading program I designed myself to help struggling readers for the last 10 years with great success. I am also certified as a Great Books reading instructor (a guided interactive reading program that uses classic literature, discussion, and shared inquiry to improve reading comprehension, and critical thinking skills).
I have been teaching in a private school for 15 years that specializes in individualized instruction, including study and organizational skills. I help students organize their desks, folders, and notebooks. I help them find the most effective way to study and learn. I utilize interest inventories to find out how students learn best, then implement a plan to address their learning style in the subjects where they need the most help.
I have a national certification in mat beginners and intermediate Pilates. I have been teaching Pilates and Yoga for 12 years at several independent studios. I am currently teaching one Pilates and two yoga classes per week at local organizations. I have completed 50 hours of the 200 hour yoga certification. I teach children and adults in Pilates and Yoga. I am certified in first aid and CPR.
