I am a certified teacher, available to tutor after school. I am certified in elementary education, special education and as a reading specialist. I am available to tutor in all subjects at the elementary level including math, reading, writing, science, and social studies.

I have been trained and am currently being certified in the Wilson Reading Program. I have experience and training working from book 1 through book 6.

I received training in the Stevenson Reading Program. The Stevenson Program is an alternative approach for teaching reading, spelling and other basic language skills. Stevenson is highly effective with students who have learning problems and provides special advantages to problem-free students as well. I have been using the Stevenson Reading Program for about a year.

I also have training in the Columbia reading and writing workshops, for students needing assistance in those areas. I taught using the workshop models for the last 4 years.

I have experience with the NJ math, science and social studies curriculum from grades 1-5 as well.

I would be willing to work with your student either in your home or at the public library.
