My passion is helping your child succeed in school. I am an experienced Elementary Ed teacher in all subjects, especially reading, writing, and math. I have had experience working with non-English speaking Kindergartners who spoke fluent English by the end of the school year. I taught all-day Kindergarten and second grade in a private school. As a faculty member, I was part of an assessment team that measured prospective kindergartners' school readiness. In my six years of teaching Kindergarten, my students learned to read, write and problem-solve by spring. My second graders achieved outstanding results on the IOWA Tests of Basic Skills.
Presently, I am a multi-district substitute teacher and recently taught long term as a Title I Reading intervention teacher. I have taught 7th and 8th Grade remedial readers who have shown considerable progress over time. If you are looking for a tutor with proven results, please consider me for your child's tutor.
I have an Instructional II Certificate to teach Elementary K -6. I have taught all-day kindergarten, first,and second grades.
I have had years of experience teaching math in both public and private schools. In a local Catholic School, I taught math to 2nd graders and kindergartners. I followed strict curriculum guidelines to insure the students performed in the 98 percentile ranking on achievement tests. I also was employed as a Title I Remedial Math teacher of 1st through 5th graders. I have experience as a Math Kindergarten through 6th substitute teacher, as well. My approach to helping students to be successful is to provide step by step instruction in problem-solving methods, while using a variety of manipulatives as needed. I also participated in a Teachers of Math summer workshop held at Northampton Community College that also involved collecting data throughout the following school year.
I am enrolled at Lehigh University for ESL Teacher Certification and have taken 9 of 12 credits I am scheduled to take the fourth course in Fall, 2011. I have experience in teaching non-native English speakers in my kindergarten classrooms.
