I am a Certified Teacher-Kindergarten-9th grade. I have tutored various grade levels in Phonics. Working in the English as a Second Language department, I did focused reading groups and individual tutoring. I also recently did a lot of phonics work in a neighboring city, working with 2 different schools. We focused on connecting sounds with letters or groups of letters, spelling patterns, consonant blends, vowel sounds and sight words.

I am a Certified Teacher-Kindergarten-9th grade. I have tutored both high school and college students in study skills. Working at a University, I also met with students on a weekly basis in order to provide strategies to help improve their study skills. We focused on time management, organization, test taking, outlining and note taking and strategies on how to do research and write a paper.
