I am an experienced classroom teacher and tutor. I have successfully helped students build vocabulary, use phonics skills, learn to read and understand what they read, and gain enough confidence to become an independent reader. I enjoy working with English language learners of all ages. Most of my experience and learning materials are designed for K-3rd Grade.
I have successfully taught math using Saxon, Montessori, and traditional approaches so will be familiar with your child's school curriculum. I favor using hands-on materials to build interest and understanding, but believe focused practice is necessary for many children to master basic math facts.
I am patient with children, but persistent in practicing skills that lead to understanding and academic achievement.
