I always knew I wanted to be a teacher! I have a masters of education from Tufts University, and over 25 years of teaching in a wonderful public school district. I am dedicated to helping children learn. Young children need to have learning be meaningful in order to assimilate the new knowledge. Throughout the years, I have refined multiple strategies to help children learn.

I use a variety of hands-on materials to help children stay focused, interested and motivated. I have worked with many children with various disabilities with much success. My two boys, one with Aspergers and one with ADHD have forced me to experience firsthand how important it is to have patience and realistic expectations. All children can learn and many times the way information is presented is key. I would love to work with you and your child to help him reach his full potential.

I am willing to meet at the public library or travel to your home.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Aspergers

My son, age 23, has Aspergers. I have read many books on the subject and attended some conferences. I have also had several integrated special needs students with the diagnosis of Aspergers in my classroom. In fact, last year I had two little boys with Aspergers. Loved them to death!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a lifetime teacher certificate from the State of RI in Early Childhood to grade 2.

Phonics

I have taught grades K and 1 for over 25 years. These early grades have a heavy concentration of phonics. I have been trained in a variety of phonics programs throughout the years. Currently I am using Project Read in the classroom. I am also trained in Dibels, which helps pinpoint weaknesses in phonics.
