I am a retired 6th grade teacher of 35 years. I enjoy working with elementary or middle level learners. I am a positive, but firm leader. I encourage students to share about themselves so that I may better meet their needs. I work with the student's current teachers and curriculum so that their feeling of success is raised in the classroom setting. I promote the importance of learning in all areas of life so that we all become lifetime learners.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a sixth grade teacher in the Upper Perkiomen School District for 35 years. I am able to tutor students successfully in all subject areas. I observe student needs and weaknesses and tailor my instruction to improve study skills and subject area knowledge. I have improved student standardized testing results in reading and math. I love working with the older elementary level students. When necessary, I will contact classroom teachers so that my instruction will help the student in their classroom situation.

Sewing

I have a sewing machine and have been sewing since I was 12 years old. I grew up in Lancaster County, where sewing was a necessary female skill. I am able to sew clothes or home textiles by following a pattern. I am also able to sew curtains, table coverings, and assorted home textiles by doing measurements or by creating my own pattern. I enjoy sewing and, with my teaching experience, would be able to teach and demonstrate the skills needed to complete a sewing project.

Study Skills

I am a retired sixth grade teacher. After 35 years of teaching with the Upper Perkiomen School District, in Pennsburg, PA, I have learned that study skills are the most important skill for student success. Parent and teacher conferences helped me understand the needs of my students. My experience has taught me that a clean locker, well organized notebook and bookbag, a detailed assignment book, a daily studying pattern, and specific study strategies for each subject, will enable a student to succeed.
