I have taught for seven years and been tutoring for seven years. I have previously taught first grade. I now am tutoring full time! I enjoy watching the students grow as learners. Although I enjoy working in the classroom, I really enjoy working one on one with students to increase their abilities in reading and math.

Working one on one also increases students' confidence levels. I have had many wonderful teaching moments when the student realizes that they can do it. I also have a passion for showing students that they can be lifelong learners and readers.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's in Reading Education. I have been teaching first grade students to read for five years. My yearly data consistently shows growth from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. I have attended many conferences by top educators in the field of reading. Which has shown in my data that I am able to apply what I learn directly to the classroom. I have a passion for reading and I believe that it shows to the students that I work with. I also have had training in Reading Recovery, which is a systematic approach to teaching reading to beginning and struggling readers.
Along with my classroom experience I have been tutoring struggling readers for four years. I have tutored students from other classrooms and school. I also have tutored students outside of school. The parents have been extremely pleased with the success their child has made during the time I worked with their child.

Phonics

As a first grade teacher phonics is a crucial part of teaching readers to read. With many professional development meetings I have gained the knowledge to teach phonics to readers. I have been taught using a method that teaches students that letters have different jobs in words. Sometimes the words work alone, together with another letter or in groups with multi-letters.
Teaching and learning can be difficult, but with experience in the classroom and tutoring, with many different learners I feel that I can meet the needs of students who may be struggling with phonics.

My daughter has already shown improvement in word recognition, reading, and writing sentences. ...
