I've advised students from High School seniors through Master's students in how best to pursue their career goals. This advising has included how to be strategic about choosing courses and networking as well as how to best frame their interests to match the desired positions.
As a professor at a top rated university, I have mentored undergraduate as well as graduate students. I have edited countless papers and have sat an numerous admissions committees. Thus, I know what is likely to get the attention of top schools and the quality of writing they expect.
I am a certified teacher who has taught kindergarten and worked with children through third grade.
A trained reading recovery teacher, I am able to support children's understanding of letter sound relations as well as spelling patterns. I use a variety of research-based techniques including letter name correspondence, elkonin boxes, and others.
As an Assistant Professor in a School of Education as well as a teacher with over 5 years experience, I am well versed in best practices in teaching of multiple subjects, particularly reading and mathematics.
I am able to support children's reading development from basic decoding to more advanced comprehension strategies. I'm a trained Reading Recovery teacher, an proven approach to helping readers learn to decode texts while still attending to meaning (unlike other purely phonics-based approaches). I am also familiar with the readers' and writers' workshop approach for helping older children learn comprehension strategies. I worked as a literacy coach training other teachers in the use of this method.
