##### About Abby

I have a Masters in Education and a PPS Counseling Credential for grades K-12. I have been in the field of education in many different positions for over twenty-five years. I grew up with a reading problem so I know how frustrating this can be to all students.

For the past two years I have been a substitute teacher for grades K-12 and have done reading tutoring off and on for many years. I have a passion to teach children to read so that they can be successful in whatever they want to do. If you can't read it makes school and life so much harder and frustrating.

I started to tutor many years ago when my son was in first grade and had many classmates who struggled with reading. The parents asked for my help and I started to tutor after school until I was hired by Fontana Unified to be a reading resource aide. During my time with Fontana Unified the Reading Resource Teacher taught me how to test students in grades K-3 to see where they needed the most help. I also took many classes to learn about reading problems.

During the school year of 2013-14 I worked with a charter school helping K-2 students who were behind in reading. I used different techniques and skills to help students be more confident and successful in reading.

I have taken three workshops on teaching phonics to students in grades K-8. I have also been taught and worked with reading specialist on why phonic is so important in the learning process.

Having worked with many students over the years I have learned and continue to educate myself in the importance phonics is to the reading process.

One of my best qualifications on study skills would be that I have the patience one needs in teaching children how to read. It can become very frustrating to all students when they can't read so the get angry, act up in class, or just give up. I have great lessons plans to help students overcome these problems.

I have great patience with all ages and teach and inform students (and parents) on ways they can help themselves to become better students, which while help them for years to come.
