My love of learning comes only second to my love of reading and teaching. I am an Elementary teacher, as well as a Reading Recovery teacher. It is my core belief that every student can and should read.
I specialize in teaching literacy, including reading, writing, grammar and phonics. I may be assigning small homework assignments and will give frequent feedback to parents.
I hold myself accountable as well. I ask for feedback and welcome any and all questions. I provide free consultations and request a 24-hour cancellation policy, if possible. I can be flexible for emergencies and can make up missed lessons when possible.
I will be happy to meet at a local library to ensure a calm atmosphere and quiet environment.
I look forward to meeting you and your child and helping achieve your child's success. Please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons.
I have been an Elementary school teacher for 12 years and, as such, have taught all curricular subjects. I have experience teaching kindergarten, first grade, third grade and fourth grade. I believe in differentiated instruction, i.e., taking the child where he currently is to where he can/should be, and I believe in a balanced literacy approach.
I have been an Elementary school teacher for 12 years, graduating summa cum laude from Buffalo State College. My Master's degree is in Literacy, and I have participated in a year-long course in Reading Recovery through Niagara University. Because of the funding issues in my school district, Reading Recovery has been cut from 7 full-time teachers to 2; therefore, I teach Reading Recovery after school. I am a dedicated teacher and believe every student can learn.
