My name is Margaret and I am a certified Elementary Teacher and certified Reading Specialist. I have a passion for teaching and helping students succeed in reaching their educational goals!
I completed my undergraduate work in Elementary Education (Birth-6th) at SUNY Potsdam in New York. I am a certified Elementary Teacher in both New York State and Georgia. I went on to complete my graduate work at Potsdam in New York as well. I received my Master of Science in Education degree and became a certified Reading Specialist (Birth- Grade 6th).
Every child is unique in their cultural, educational, and social background. My tutoring objective is to be an outstanding tutor who not only recognizes the differences, but embraces and incorporates these unique differences into every aspect of the child's tailored curriculum. I also want to create a positive learning environment where the student has the opportunity and the resources necessary to be successful. I am passionate about meeting the needs of the child and will do what it takes to meet these needs.
Another objective of mine is to make learning/tutoring sessions meaningful to the student and connect curriculum to their daily lives and experiences. I will do this by, creating lessons that are student-centered and meet students’ individual needs. I also will use research-based practices that promote inquiry and critical thinking, as well as instill the desire to be a life-long learner.
Every child has the right to an education that promotes life-long learning and responsible citizenship. I want to be a leader and a role model for all students and assist them in their pursuit of meeting their goals.
I am a team player who will collaborates well with the student, their parents and teachers to accomplish the students educational goals.I will create an environment that is stimulating, creative and positive.
I would love to receive the opportunity to help your child reach their educational goals!
