About Jane


Bio

I am a certified Elementary Teacher in the state of CT with 20+ years experience. I love children, teaching and learning. I am very patient and have a great sense of humor. I possess a positive attitude and believe that we all learn something new everyday.

I live in Newtown Connecticut with my husband and three children ages 19 - 24. I have been my children's teacher all of their lives! I can play the flute and piano (when I practice!) and I love to sing. I love to read and I enjoy many...

I am a certified Elementary Teacher in the state of CT with 20+ years experience. I love children, teaching and learning. I am very patient and have a great sense of humor. I possess a positive attitude and believe that we all learn something new everyday.

I live in Newtown Connecticut with my husband and three children ages 19 - 24. I have been my children's teacher all of their lives! I can play the flute and piano (when I practice!) and I love to sing. I love to read and I enjoy many different types of books and magazines. I also love to cook (and eat!)

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you learn!

I love to read and teach reading! I have forty-two credits towards earning my Master's Degree in Special Education and have learned a lot about different approaches to teach reading. I have excellent reading, writing and communication skills.

Before I married my husband and moved to Connecticut, I was a full-day Kindergarten Teacher in Queens, New York for eight years. The reading program that I used was phonetically based. I have learned many different methods and approaches to teach phonics through coursework and practical experiences.

I have more than twenty years experience working with Elementary students. I teach a number of different ways to improve spelling and study skills. I differentiate my teaching methods and approaches to fit the needs of each student.

I hope I can be of service to your learning needs and look forward to hearing from you to schedule lessons!

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in Elementary Education (K-6) by the state of Connecticut. I also have many years of experience working with elementary aged students in reading, writing and grammar in both one-to-one and small group settings. I have earned forty-two credits toward my Master's Degree in Special Education at Fairfield University in Connecticut. I believe this adds to my qualifications as a tutor. I am familiar with the Orton-Gillingham approach which can help students with both reading and writing.

I have a BA in Elementary Education from Concordia College, Bronxville, New York. I have completed forty-two hours of coursework toward a Master's Degree in Special Education at Fairfield University, Fairfield, Connecticut. I taught phonics as part of the reading program at Queens Lutheran School in Long Island City, New York. I currently work for the Newtown Board of Education as a one-to-one Paraprofessional for a special needs student. I have worked for Newtown Public Schools from 2006-present. During this time, I have worked with many different students requiring help in reading and phonics.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor study skills because of my educational background in both Elementary and Special Education. When teaching any subject, different methods can be used to help a student remember what they have learned. Flash cards are helpful when studying for quizzes and tests. Highlighting important parts of a paragraph can help a student remember the main idea of a story or article. I help students organize their homework assignments by having them use color coded folders and notebooks for each subject.
