I am a qualified, experienced teacher, recently arrived in New Jersey from Wisconsin, and have taught grades 2 through 9 in South Africa, England and Madison WI.
I have a Wisconsin teacher's license for Grades K-8, as well as a New Jersey license. I have taught all subjects in the elementary school, and in addition am qualified to teach math to high school level, so I have an overview of your child's needs and can see where they are going and what they need in any particular grade to succeed. I am familiar with Everyday Math, having taught it to all grade levels. I have taught reading and am trained in the Orton Gillingham method using phonics.
My teaching philosophy leans to hands on methods where possible, but of course if it suited your child's learning style I would use a more structured approach and adapt to the needs and personality of the learner. My most recent teaching experience is in 3rd and 4th grades. Before that I set up a K-5 hands-on science program. I have worked as the Gifted and Talented Resource teacher for an elementary school, as well as worked with children to help them reach grade level expectations.
