I have been a teacher in the Perry Community School district over 20 years. I have tutored students of varying ages and abilities nearly every summer. I have experience with special needs students, as well as English as a second language. Whether your child is somewhat behind or significantly behind, I will build a program for them to take them further. I am a caring, nurturing, and firm but fair teacher. I respect your child and use humor to ease your child's possible anxiousness about their learning. I am a firm believer in a phonetic approach to learning to read, and to build a better base for sounding out unknown words. I have worked with young elementary students through eighth graders. Let me know how I can help your child be the best they can be!
