Bio

As a tutor, I thrive on creating genuine "ah-ha" moments for all students. I teach with passion and incorporate lesson plans that challenge students, mixed with some light-hearted fun and creativity. I create an open relationship, and consistently challenge students to grow at their own pace and flourish. It is here that students have ample opportunities to work hard, express themselves, share their work and celebrate their successes, both big and small.

As a tutor, I thrive on creating genuine "ah-ha" moments for all students. I teach with passion and incorporate lesson plans that challenge students, mixed with some light-hearted fun and creativity. I create an open relationship, and consistently challenge students to grow at their own pace and flourish. It is here that students have ample opportunities to work hard, express themselves, share their work and celebrate their successes, both big and small.

Acknowledging that it takes teamwork to make strides in a student's learning, I welcome and encourage parents to share in their children's intellectual growth and development, and partner with them to achieve their students' academic goals. Consistent, and open, communication is essential to creating rapport and trust, and is always welcome!

My experience with teaching elementary students dates back some 25 years, when later in life, I chose to leave a high-level corporate career in New York City become a teacher. The catalyst for this life-changing decision came while tutoring a young boy in reading who finally "got" a concept I was teaching. At that moment, I knew I needed to be a teacher! Within a short time, I emotionally quit my job, packed my belongings and moved to Colorado, where I earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, with a Literacy emphasis (a perfect fit with my English/Psych Degree from King's College), at the University of Colorado, and became a certified Elementary Teacher. I've been teaching/tutoring ever since.

In addition to my educational and professional qualifications, what makes me an outstanding Reading, Writing and Grammar tutor is my command of the English language, and my extensive exposure to working in the magazine publishing industry for many years as a Proofreader, Copy Editor and Managing Editor. In addition, I am a fun-loving teacher who creates trust, makes learning fun, and communicates at an age-appropriate level.
