I am interested in tutoring students from Kindergarten through Fourth Grade. My strengths are in reading, phonics, writing (grammar and usage), and reading in other subject areas (such as science or social studies). I am also interested in tutoring students in math. I like to use a variety of approaches which engage the students, and I rarely use worksheets, which the students are already doing in school. When appropriate, I would also use movement activities to reinforce skills.
I have 20+ years of teaching experience, most recently teaching Third Grade for 13 years. For the past two years, however, I was supervisor of a before- and after-school Latch Key Program for students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. I directed their activities which ranged from informal chatting or playing games to giving homework help. I have worked one-on-one with students over the years and have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to get to know the students, discovering their interests as well as their strengths and weaknesses in order to discover their way of learning.
