I have obtained my M.Ed. in K-12 through New England Colleges' online program in May of 2012. My experience in teaching began in tutoring special needs students at the high school level, working as a paraprofessional K-12, and substitute teaching K-12.

Currently, I work as a Literary Reader at a Montessori school assisting students in learning to read.

I have a love and passion for academia and would very much enjoy tutoring your child. The best part of the teaching world is to see a child learn and grow. It's great to see their eye's sparkle when they "get it"!

I have earned a Black Belt in art of Taekwondo from Riverside Taekwondo Hapkito in Weare, NH. I have assisted in the teaching of art of Taekwondo under Master S. Couhie. I studied the art for 7 years+ and completed a very extensive Black Belt boot camp under Grandmaster M. Couhie.

Phonics

I have worked with students’ ages 3-6 in learning how to read using the VAK (Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic) model of learning. By using this model the students learned by doing, seeing, and hearing. The student’s I worked with sang, drew, played with, and made the sound of each letter in learning to read. In learning the sounds, working in groups, and one on one, the students learned to put the sounds together forming words.

I have volunteering experience at a Montessori school as a Reader assisting with teaching children the skills needed to read. I am also a Homeschooling parent of two with an M.Ed. in Literacy and Language Arts.
