Hi .. I am a mom, a grandmother, a real estate agent and a Navy wife! I have lived in some wonderful places over the years and now we have settled in North Carolina. I have three sighthounds and I work with them in obedience training. We also raise our grandson and I home schooled him for one semester to help him catch up with his class. I don't have a lot of experience as a professional tutor but after raising five kids and one grandchild, I think I have done enough homework to qualify!! I see that the basics for sounding out words are not as important in schools today as they used to be and I think that is sad. Good phonetic skills are vitally important and that is my goal .. to help kids be able to sound out words by knowing the rules. Good communication skills and good reading skills are vitally important in today's fast paced world. The ability to read well andcomprehend thoroughly help a student excel in all their school work. I am an avid reader and my hope is to share that enjoyment with all students I come in contact with.
