Hello! My name is Terri; my students call me Ms.Terra. I currently work as a California-credentialed teacher in the Folsom Cordova Unified School District as a Montessori Primary teacher. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in education and later earned a master’s degree in Montessori Integrative Learning. I received Montessori training on the primary level and have been passionate about this method of teaching ever since.

I absolutely love my work with children! With the school year having ended, I am now available to help elementary-aged students and/or adult English language learners improve their reading and writing skills. Each year I teach students how to successfully learn to read, through phonics and decoding, memorizing high frequency words, writing phonetically and learning key sound graphemes. I also like to make reading interesting and fun, through introducing well-written, captivating children’s literature. I have a good command of the English language, both written and spoken, and can help with preparing speeches and/or papers as well.

My specialty is teaching reading skills; however I am also knowledgeable in all elementary subjects. I pride myself in being highly resourceful and can never let a question or problem go unanswered. I do not claim to know everything about every subject, but I do know how to find answers and how to have fun doing it! My goal is to ignite a love of learning in every student I work with.

My schedule is flexible, and I am easy to reach. I can squeeze you into my schedule—all I ask is, once scheduled, please do your best to make the lesson. I offer free initial, half-hour consultations to make sure the fit is good. If both parties agree to the terms and policies after the initial consultation, tutoring may begin. Please allow me a 3-hour window to respond to questions and concerns not related to a scheduled lesson/appointment.

Thanks for your time! Happy Learning!
