Thank you for visiting my profile!

With over 15 years of teaching experience, I thoroughly enjoy working with students of all ages. I have taught various grades in private schools, charter schools and district schools. I have also worked in schools as a Reading Specialist and Special Education teacher.

Through tutoring, I would like to continue to help students to build their confidence and to enjoy learning. I have both my Bachelor of Arts and Master of Education degrees, and I am certified in elementary education, Reading Specialist, and Special Education. I live in Folsom, PA with my husband and 2 young children.

One of my strengths is that I strive to make learning enjoyable. One-on-One tutoring is a wonderful way to give your child the personal attention he/she needs to be a successful learner.

I tutor students throughout Delaware county. My available hours are mainly evenings and weekends. I will come to your home or a nearby library, community center, etc. Students may also come to my home if easier. I look forward to hearing from you!
