Hello! I would love to have the opportunity to tutor your child. I have 21 years experience as an elementary school teacher. I have taught in Snohomish for the past 15 years.

Through my 21 years of experience in an elementary classroom, I have developed many effective techniques and strategies for working with children that have either ADD or ADHD. My masters degree in Multidisciplinary Studies has also equipped me with knowledge and skills that are effective with these students. Developing a close, personal, trusting relationship with these children is key to their success. They have to trust that, not only do I care deeply for them, but I have their back as well. Children with ADD/ADHD need constant reassurance, much patience, and encouragement. Clear instruction and routine are vital to their success. Adjusting their workload and location in the classroom are important considerations.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 21 years of experience as an elementary school teacher. I have taught kindergarten through 3rd grade. I received my teaching certificate from Western Washington University in 1989. I then went back to receive my MA in Education in 1993.

Elementary Math

Although I am very qualified to teacher all subject areas, most of my tutoring experience is actually done in the area of 4th-6th grade math.


As a primary school teacher (K-3rd grade), I have much experience teaching children phonics. Phonics is a very important skill for successful reading. I have many strategies for teaching children their phonics.
