I have more than fifteen years experience as a classroom teacher. I taught third grade for ten years and kindergarten for three years. I have also been a tutor and substitute teacher of multiple levels for years.
Tutoring is one of my great passions! I love being a tutor, because I get opportunities to work with students one-on-one. Powerful learning happens when the student has the teacher's full attention. This level of learning, as well as the positive rapport, is so rewarding!
I make English accessible and engaging by integrating interests and passions of my students into lessons that are at the right level for learning and success. My sense of humor and calm demeanor put my students at ease, allowing the learning to be more natural.
My 15+ years of experience as a classroom teacher give me great insight into how kids learn and creative ways to guide the process. I have helped many students (as a teacher and tutor) engage in their own learning process and improve their reading, writing, study skills, art, social skills, and confidence.
My years as a kindergarten teacher especially developed my explicit insight and teaching of Phonics!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I am more than qualified to teach handwriting. I taught 3rd grade for ten years, which included handwriting and multiple subjects. Also, I taught kindergarten for three years. There was a real focus on handwriting in both teaching positions. I have taught handwriting to students in tutoring settings as well. I have experience using a great handwriting program, Handwriting Without Tears. I understand the importance of proper letter formation and enjoy helping kids improve their handwriting.
