I am a dedicated teacher with over 19 years of teaching experience. My teaching credential is in Special Ed as is my Master's Degree. I have worked in four educational settings and have acquired proficiency in handling the complicated yet important task of teaching children, with and without special needs. I encourage students to develop emotionally, socially and academically, according to their individual needs. I am sensitive to student needs and I help build self-esteem and I comfort students in need. I am firm and have high expectations while remaining loving at all times. I have a background in developmental practices and educational theories. I have outstanding interpersonal communication and am parent/student oriented. I am communicative and cooperative and engender optimal student/parent/tutor interaction.

I demonstrate a strong work ethic and have excellent verbal and written skills. I am an effective time manager and am sensitive to different learning styles and abilities. I have strong decision-making skills and maintain an orderly learning environment. I am personally skilled in math and have taught math in the public schools. I have over 16 years' experience in teaching reading, writing, listening and speaking competencies. I have especially liked working one-on-one with students over the years and feel that it is the most effective way to help a student succeed. I feel that nurturing a child's self-esteem and sense of accomplishment is vital to overall academic success, regardless of the level the student is at.

ADHD

My teaching credential is in Special Ed as is my Masters Degree. I successfully taught in public schools for over 16 years in the mild/moderate special ed classroom. ADD/ADHD was a common diagnosis for students on my caseload. Due to the small class sizes I had, I feel that students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD thrived and excelled in English Language Arts and Math.
Dyslexia

Dyslexia

My teaching credential is in Special Ed as is my Masters Degree. I successfully taught in public schools for over 16 years in the mild/moderate special ed classroom. Students with dyslexia were common in my classroom as well as in the general education classroom. I have used many different strategies to teach students with dyslexia and am able to modify curriculum so that students with dyslexia can access the general education curriculum. I feel that students diagnosed with dyslexia thrived and excelled in the English Language Arts and Math classes I taught.

Patient, positive and optimistic

LuAnn has made me feel like I have a partner on my daughter’s journey to proficient literacy. She makes my daughter very comfortable and I’m quite optimistic my girl will build some much needed confidence

Shanise, 47 lessons with Lu Ann

Building confidence

LuAnn has been an excellent fit as a math tutor for my son. She has helped him to review areas of deficiency and improve his confidence. She took a very tailored approach to working with him and I am confident he will be well-prepared for 7th grade in the fall. After their last session, he even asked if he could continue tutoring with LuAnn after school starts! Of course I said yes!

Amazing, knowledgeable, and patient tutor!

Ms. LuAnn has been a great tutor for my 11-year-old son. My son has ADHD and Ms. LuAnn finds strategies to maintain his attention and teaches my son difficult material in a simplistic manner. She has gone above and beyond to make sure she is prepared for my son’s tutoring sessions by obtaining a copy of his math book, extra practice worksheets, and providing me with frequent updates on his tutoring progress when I am at work. My family and I are grateful for Ms. LuAnn’s help and her continuous support. If you’re looking for a patient, prepared, and knowledgeable tutor I highly recommend Ms. LuAnn. Thank you, Ms. LuAnn!

My son adores LuAnn!

My son is 7 and on the autism spectrum. LuAnn has expertise in working with special needs children and my son has had tremendous improvement with his reading. He looks forward to meeting with her every week and will happily engage with her and work on his reading. She is incredibly patient but is also able to set limits and get him on task. His school and I have noticed a big difference in his reading abilities. I am so grateful that he is now interested in reading and he is showing confidence and improvement at school. Thank you, LuAnn!

A+ Tutor

LuAnn is a great tutor. We went through 3 tutors till we finally found her. My kindergartener struggles with reading and Luann immediately took action through assessment and by reaching out to her teacher. We as well as the teacher noticed a significant improvement and confidence in our child.
