My philosophy about tutoring is that it should be something educational with a positive vibe. Students today have a lot of pressure to perform in and out of school. We need to give our students help but also let them feel confident about what they do and who they are. I have 17 years teaching experience with K-8 students in the classroom and have also tutored students from ages 5-adult. I specialize in grades K-8 reading, writing, math, social studies, study skills, test prep, and 6-12 reading, algebra, geometry, social studies, study skills, and test prep. I have a track record of reading and math level gains as a classroom teacher, and I believe it is important to give students positive feedback and chances to discuss their thoughts and reasoning. I have a K-8 elementary education certificate with a middle school math endorsement, plus a K-12 reading specialist certificate.
