Hello parents and students. I am a retired classroom teacher with eight years of experience teaching and tutoring elementary students including those with special needs. I have an M.S.in childhood education (1-6) and special education as well as a background in technology. I'm a published writer who always brings along a patient and nurturing attitude, whatever your learning needs.
I bring a focused approach to building and strengthening math, reading, comprehension and writing skills geared to each student's learning style while building confidence and concentration. I keep students engaged, making learning a fun, relevant discovery process while helping him or her make connections to themselves and the world around them.
I believe the best approach to test preparation is to create solid skills mastery with lots of variety and practice. Specific test taking strategies can then be added to make sure a student is able to show what they have learned.
Of course, if you wish, homework help can be incorporated into tutoring sessions. My schedule flexible and can include Saturday sessions.
