Elementary (K-6th)

I am Mass certified as a K-8 elementary education teacher.


I can help with all English skills for second language English learners. Pronunciation, learning idioms, etc. I can also tutor you for TOEFL.


I have experience working with middle schoolers to adults in critical reading skills, inference and building vocabulary.


I am a native speaker of Spanish and have taught high school Spanish.

Study Skills

I work as a public school teacher as an ELL Specialist with over 25 years' experience. Study Skills require a wide range of skills. I help students organize by using color coding, binders, and calendars. Middle school students frequently carry bundles of papers they do not need to carry around. I help students create 3 piles: Keep/IMP; Toss; and Not Sure. I then help them color code their subject areas with colored pens, tabs or stickies. I also encourage calendars for projects due, tests, presentations, etc.

Studying for tests is easier when papers are organized. Using flashcards. I also encourage group studying.


As an ESL classroom teacher, I use the writing process to help students, even at the beginning level, learn to write with a beginning, middle and end. I use reading response journals as a way for young children to say why the like a story and then write about the story.
At the middle and upper levels I teach how to write a paragraph using topic, 3 details, and conclusion.
