After teaching for 25 years in Toronto and New York City elementary schools, I have retired and have time to do the work I like best: tutoring young children outside the classroom setting who need help with reading, math and writing. My experience includes certification in Reading Recovery, the Wilson Reading System and workshops in Singapore Math.
Although I have been a classroom teacher, most of my teaching career has been working with struggling students in a small group or 1:1 basis. I am a reading specialist but have also am confident with math, science and social studies. For the last 6 years I have worked closely with the New York State tests in the role of test prep teacher, administrator and scoring.
I am deeply committed to the goal of creating a warm and secure environment that encourages ALL children to learn, be creative, and express themselves so that their positive self-esteem and confidence are developed as individuals.
