****SUMMER STUDENTS***

I currently teach Pre-Kindergarten in Houston Texas. I am looking for a couple of students to tutor throughout the summer. I am able to develop an individualized plan to meet your child's needs. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education, and going to begin my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction in Literacy Studies to become a Reading Specialist.

I have tutored through WyzAnt before. One first grader in Language Arts, who also has dyslexia, the other in 8th grade math. I love working with children and watching them succeed.
