I am a Master's level teacher with 35 years of teaching experience. I have taught at the K-8 levels, and have tutored students of all ages, including college level and older adults. I am now semi-retired.
I have taught in public and public charter schools, and my most recent experience is that of a Reading Specialist, Literacy Coordinator, and Reading Recovery Teacher. I have done teacher trainings while in these positions, but my true love is in working one-to-one with students and seeing them become confident and fluent in the reading and language arts areas. I have also taught and enjoy helping students with study skills and test taking strategies.
I am also an experienced Special Education Resource teacher. As a Special Ed. teacher, I have done both pull-out small group work, and have taught reading, writing, study skills, and test taking strategies in regular ed. classrooms.
A critical part of my teaching and tutoring is "following the child" in terms of individual strengths, need areas, learning styles, and interests. I usually begin by giving informal assessments, as needed, to determine current levels in the various learning areas. I will work with you to determine together the best approach in working with you or your child.
Hope to hear from you!
