I have had a love for reading and teaching from a very young age. My father and grandmother were both teachers and they were my role models. I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary and Early Childhood from UALR in December, 1979 and began teaching in January, 1980 while teaching I continued to work on my Master's degree in Elementary and Early Childhood which I completed in the summer of 1984. My advisor, role model and friend, Dr. Rose Berry, made my love of reading grow further and it became my passion. I have taught in Arkansas, Florida, and Pennsylvania in public, private, and Christian schools and continued to see the need to help individual students who struggled in the area of reading.
I feel individual tutoring is the best way to help those children who struggle. My son struggled in the area of reading comprehension and I was fortunate to find people who reached him and helped him through this area of difficulty. As a mother, I wanted to help him, but soon found that it was better for someone less "emotionally involved" to assist him. It was the right choice, and as a young adult he reads not only to learn more about his love of the culinary world, but also for pleasure. Reading is one of the most important skills a child will ever learn, but it is not only a necessary skill throughout life it is a skill that can bring joy into the life of the reader.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education and several years of teaching experience. I have worked with children ages 2 - 16 years of age in a classroom setting and one-on-one, with many different levels of ability. I have a love for reading and want to share that with others.
