Hi! I have taught elementary education in Springfield, IL for the past 27 years. I have worked with students in grades K-5. I have taught all elementary subject areas, specializing in reading, writing, and phonics. I have my bachelors and masters in elementary education from Western IL Univ. I also have an endorsement in reading, and have been trained in Reading Recovery. I enjoy working with students and using a variety of teaching styles and materials. In reading, I focus on decoding (phonics), using multiple strategies to figure out 'tricky' words, fluency, and comprehension. In math, I focus on problem solving, relating math to the real world around us, and reasoning. I also teach study skills and organizational skills to elementary students. I would love the opportunity to help your child become more successful in his/her learning.
