My love for teaching and for children has allowed me to work where I can help others succeed and learn new strategies for every subject. I believe that all children have potential and I pride myself in bringing that potential to life in the children that I teach/tutor. One of my goals is to help children reach their academic potential through teaching learning skills and boost their confidence within themselves.
I have spent the last 15 years as a Special Education teacher working in a middle school with children with Emotional Disturbances, Learning Disabilities, and Physical Disabilities. In August 2012 I changed my role in the education field and moved to the elementary level. My area of teaching is with struggling children in the subjects of Reading
(through Direct Instruction), Writing
, Study Skills
, and children being assessed for Special Education. I believe in teaching and working with a student in ways that are conducive to their learning styles. Each child learns in a different way and I welcome that.
In addition to my Special Education work, I have also worked as a Director of an After School Homework/Recreation Program for 15+ years. In this position I tutored elementary school children ages 5-12. I left this position when I changed teaching from middle school to elementary school. I helped many of those children from K to fifth grade
and it was amazing to see them blossom into bright, studious young adults as they moved to middle school.
I may assign homework between sessions depending on the level of comprehension of the student. I try to be flexible and strive to be available to answer any questions that may arise between our tutoring sessions. I do have a 24 hour cancellation notice policy and do offer makeup sessions.
I look forward to meeting and helping your child succeed in their studies!
