Bio

I am an experienced teacher of 20 years. I graduated college in 1998 and began a career as an elementary educator shortly after. I enjoy working with the little ones but can and do relate to older children as well. I have taught in the public educational school system my entire career. I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and sixth grades.

I am an experienced teacher of 20 years. I graduated college in 1998 and began a career as an elementary educator shortly after. I enjoy working with the little ones but can and do relate to older children as well. I have taught in the public educational school system my entire career. I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and sixth grades.

Tutoring is an opportunity to really hone in on what skills a child has and what skills are lacking. In a classroom of 25-32 students teachers are often unable to teach to the individual needs of each child. Tutoring allows for this. I would be honored to work with you to help get your child caught up, ahead if the game, or whatever the situation is. Together we can devise a plan to get your child back on track and feeling confident.

I realize the importance of making real life connections. When teaching math I try to always connect the strategy being taught to real life. In addition using manipulative to work problems out is another strategy utilized.

I am an outstanding teacher when it comes to the written word. I make it come alive. In my experience the more you can connect things we learn to our lives the more meaningful and authentic the learning becomes. When reading a difficult passage for instance, I may act it out. This helps the learner visualize the meaning of unknown words.

Phonics instruction must be frequent and repetitive in the early years of a child's life. Keeping it fun will keep the students engaged and learning. I love to bring in poetry and alliteration to my phonics instruction. Before you know it they memorize the entire poem and begin to make connections between written words and spoken sounds.

Words have patterns and when teaching children to read, write, and spell it's important that we point out the patterns we see. I am not a big believer on the Friday afternoon spelling test.
