I am a certified teacher who supports a love of learning, instilled and nurtured by tuning into each child's interests, particular talents, and learning styles. I am a devoted educator with ten plus years of experience as a paraprofessional, teacher and tutor.

As a tutor, I continue my dedication to the education of children by using methods that support the foundation of a sound and dynamic education, which is equal parts proven curriculum, measurable standards and flexibility that allows a talented educator to use her intuition and skills to make adjustments for Individualized strategies. I would love the opportunity to meet you and work with your child.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Phonics

I am a certified educator with 15 years of experience. I started teaching as a paraprofessional working one on with special needs children. I graduated with my Masters in TESOL in 2006 while teaching in ESL and CTT classrooms, first as the Special Education Teacher in a first grade classroom and then as the Lead Teacher in a Kindergarten classroom. I am trained in Balanced Literacy and have had recent success in teaching children how to read. It do believe that an emphasis on Phoenix work is my belief that phonemic awareness is an important factor in building layers in comprehension while children are learning to read.
