Hello,

I would like to introduce myself. I am an experienced elementary school teacher with a background that specializes in reading and phonics. I have most recently worked as a Library Media Specialist and love teaching children to appreciate literature. I have taught all grades preschool through 12th, but specialize in the K-6 range. I have taught in five states and worked with many kinds of children for the past 25 years.

I have great references showing my character and experience and would love to meet you to discuss how we can partner together to help your child be successful.

Please consider me when you are deciding on a tutor. I am kind and compassionate, patient and organized.

Thank you for your consideration,

Cheryl
