I graduated in 1985 from Texas A&M University in College Station. I went on to teach for 13 years in the public school system, mostly in the elementary grades, before giving birth to twin boys. I chose to stay home and raise my children after that. Since that time, I have taught an additional three years in the parochial school system in both junior high and high school. I have taught a number of individuals out of my home, and I have also taught flute to a variety of ages and abilities. I taught one semester of remedial reading (level 2)as an adjunct professor at a local junior college.
I currently homeschool my children and work outside the home when possible. I can teach reading, writing and spelling in grades K-12. At the college level I can teach remedial reading, English, and writing. This includes research paper writing as well as writing at all levels.
While my real love is writing, my expertise is reading at all levels. I am particularly good with struggling early readers (K-3) as I have extensive training in phonics. Additionally, in my tutoring, I use many of my own techniques which have proven effective over the years.
I bring a wide variety of techniques, some old and some new, to my tutoring sessions. Each child is different and unique, and what method or technique works for one child will not necessarily work for the next. A good tutor has a wealth of ideas to choose from in dealing with students. I will work with your child to fill in their weaknesses and give them confidence in their strengths. I will gladly contact the student's classroom teacher to determine what extra help they need if necessary.
If, after speaking with you about your needs, I feel that I cannot help you I will tell you so. You are then free to find someone else better suited to your needs.
I look forward to hearing from you!
