After working as a teacher's aide for 4 years, I realized how much I loved working with children. I went back to college and earned my degree in Early Childhood Education. I graduated with a 3.9, with highest distinctions. I truly am so lucky to love what I do each day. It is a wonderful feeling knowing I have made a difference in so many children's lives.
My passion lies mostly in teaching elementary level literacy and math. I teach children many different strategies students can apply when learning to read. These strategies have proved to be very effective with children that are struggling with success in reading. I also have experience with Go Math and Engage Math, ( a new math some school districts have recently acquired through New York State). My patience and manner of teaching gives children the feeling of accomplishment and the desire to learn.
I prefer meeting the student and parent first to discuss the areas in need of assistance, at no charge. This helps me to get to know the child's strengths and weaknesses. It also is a great opportunity for the parent to ask any questions about me and my work.
I am extremely flexible with times and days of meeting. I do ask for a six hour advance notice of cancellation. I will tutor where ever the parent and student feel most comfortable. I am willing to tutor in the home, as long as a parent is there.
I appreciate your interest and consideration. I am looking forward to helping your child accomplish their goals. I can be contacted by either cell phone or email.
I have worked with kindergarteners and first graders using the Handwriting Without Tears program for the past 4 years. I have worked side by side with OT teachers observing and recommending those who may qualify for OT services. I am aware of the signs that a child may need assistance with handwriting skills, such as holding their pencil awkwardly, avoiding writing in class, difficulty forming letters and uneven spacing of words. I also know that good handwriting helps foster a child's success.
