I am a certified teacher who has a passion for helping individual students learn and grow. I hold a Master's degree in Elementary Teaching from Simmons College and an undergraduate degree in English from Regis College. Before staying at home with my children I taught high school English for five years. I also have extensive tutoring experience working with The Huntington Learning Center when they were located in Framingham & Shrewsbury, focusing on SAT prep instruction as well as reading & math remediation. I love working one-on-one with students because it offers the opportunity to tailor instruction and assistance to the individual student's needs.

I am available to assist all grade levels in both reading and writing, and I can work with elementary level students in all areas of the curriculum. I also assist students with both study skills and test taking strategies. I believe strongly in assisting each student with the development of strong executive functioning skills such as organization, prioritization, task management, self checking of work, establishing routines, etc. Strengthening these skills creates a strong foundation for individual growth and helps to establish repeated success for every student.

I have worked with a wide range of students from those needing just a little assistance with their writing, to students with greater learning challenges. It is important to me that no matter what type of student I work with, we develop an individually tailored plan that aims to meet the specific needs of that student. I'm an advocate for open communication with parents and encourage parents to be as involved in the learning process as they are comfortable.

As a mom of three I am also active in our community, coordinating our children's liturgy at church, teaching two religious ed classes each week (first & eighth grades), teaching adult ed photography classes and running a successful photography business out of my home. I have high standards and can be a bit of a perfectionist. As a result it is important to me that you are completely satisfied with the work I do with your student.

Please feel free to get in touch with me if you think I might be able to help your student. I look forward to working with you!
