I have a lifelong passion for helping children learn and reach their full potential. In 1983, I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Elementary Education, and I have spent the years since teaching at the grade school, high school, and college level. As an elementary teacher for over twenty years, I recognize the need for teaching strong, phonics-based reading skills, foundational study habits, and memorization techniques. I also work hard to implement an exciting, fun approach to education. For the last eight years, I have operated a homeschool co-op, where I have worked closely with each student, helping children and teenagers (some with special needs) to better understand their class work and excel in each area of study. I enjoy working with children and teens in and out of the classroom; for the last thirty-five years, I have also been heavily involved in Children's Ministries at the local churches I have attended. I look forward to helping your child discover the joy of learning!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a degree in elementary education and over 25 years of experience teaching on this level. I look forward to working with your student.

Phonics

Phonics is the teaching of reading through a systematic application of the sounds that letters make and the combination of those letters to make words. Phonics is a basic tool to teach reading in a orderly and reasonable manner.

I have a degree in elementary education and have taught phonics for thirty years. I have taught on the elementary level and have taught teaching reading on the college level with a concentration in phonics. I have developed a phonics-based curriculum.

Voice (Music)

I have taught children's music for thirty years, including directing children's choirs and musical productions. I have taught basic music theory in the choirs I have directed and taught a class on teaching elementary music on the college level. I have traveled in music groups across the country and have had voice training on the college level. I work with children and teens in developing vocal skills and techniques to attain quality sound and ease of production. I love music, along with my family. My husband majored in voice in college and my daughter majored in piano. Music plays a great role in our family.

Amazing experience! — My daughter is in first grade and just wasn't at the reading level she needed to be. We were having a very difficult time getting her to read with us at home so we decided to look for a tutor. We're so thankful a quick Google search led us to Ginger!
