Hi and thank you for visiting my site. I am a GA, CA, and IL certified elementary teacher. I have taught in both public and private schools. I taught first, third, fourth, and fifth grade. I have worked at a Title One school in IL where my sole job was to bring students to grade level reading and writing. I realized how many students find learning difficult because they were unable to read. I wanted them to have freedom in learning and to be confident in who they are by helping them to read. I am now a Reading Specialist and love to help students learn to read, spell, increase vocabulary skills, and write with confidence. I also love helping students with Dyslexia. I believe all students can learn and succeed in any academic subject. I use hands-on manipulatives in reading, math, grammar, and other subjects. Students have various ways of learning and as a tutor, I adjust my teaching methods accordingly. I love getting to know my students and enjoy learning from them, too! Tutoring a student, whether in a group or one on one, gives me an opportunity to work with students giving them my undivided attention.
