Licensed Elementary Teacher and Reading Specialist. I am a graduate from Purdue North Central and I am a reading specialist at an elementary school in Portage, Indiana. I am also certified to teach math, science, and social studies. I am willing to travel up to 15 miles from Portage or Valpo. I can be very flexible with my time this summer and am available during the school year as well. I believe in teaching with hands-on manipulatives, so your child would be fully engaged in learning during our tutoring session. I am very positive and encouraging, as I believe that confidence is crucial for my students. I promise to put a great amount of thought and planning into the lessons that I create specifically for your child. Please contact me if I sound like the tutor for you!
