Hello! Finding a tutor that fits your needs can be a challenging task. By defining my expertise and teaching style, you'll be able to determine if I'm a good fit for you or your child. I have 13 year experience teaching elementary level children in a public school. While I am qualified and enjoy teaching all subjects, I have specialty training in reading; helping young, early readers develop solid reading skills that transform children into lovers of reading. I assess each student to determine their learning style, preferences, strengths and weaknesses. I reinforce their strengths to instill a sense of confidence and ownership in learning. Reading and writing go hand in hand in hand, so I like to incorporate both and have students create their own stories, again, to instill confidence and motivation to improve. Math instruction encompasses the use of manipulatives and real-life experiences to make learning relevant and fun. I look forward to working with you!

I am highly effective in teaching phonics because of my years of experience in teaching first grade, (10 years total) and because of my specialized training in reading as an early intervention reading specialist. I use a combination of strategies for teaching phonics within the context of the whole text and utilize all modalities for learning.
