Upon graduation from Teachers College, Columbia University with a Masters in Elementary Curriculum and Teaching, I have taught all subjects for over 10 years. Throughout this teaching and learning, I have found it crucial to assess where the student is in their learning, find his or her strengths and promote growth and understanding through these strengths while challenging the student to face their struggles as well. I have taught students in grades 2 through 7, with a particular talent for reaching students who do not seem to fit in a sometimes rigid educational system. I have also tutored individuals both here in Brattleboro, as well as New York City and Denver, Colorado. In 2008 I was nominated for and awarded the Milken Family Vermont Teacher of the Year award.
I believe teaching and learning should be meaningful, useful and fun! While I can coach your child based on homework and classwork provided, I can also use my experience, insight and creativity to boost your child's learning through games, projects and life experiences. For example, if your child is struggling with multiplication, we might look at items in the grocery store that come in groups, play a math game that promotes skip counting or use markers and giant graph paper to draw arrays. I can provide this kind of in depth, skill building in all areas of the curriculum from social studies, to reading, writing, math, science and social skills.
