Bio

I am an experienced elementary school teacher available for tutoring. I have my undergraduate degree in elementary education and my master's degree in special education. I am Connecticut certified in elementary education and special education.
Tutoring allows for a small group setting which provides both the student and the teacher to get the most out of each session. I believe that sessions should be fun, engaging, and unique to fulfill the needs of each student.

I am an experienced elementary school teacher available for tutoring. I have my undergraduate degree in elementary education and my master's degree in special education. I am Connecticut certified in elementary education and special education.
Tutoring allows for a small group setting which provides both the student and the teacher to get the most out of each session. I believe that sessions should be fun, engaging, and unique to fulfill the needs of each student.

I am currently a first grade teacher. I have taught both first and second grade for the past five years. I have been trained by Literacy How consultants who are at the forefront of Connecticut reading legislation.

At my school, we use the Common Core State Standards and our regular curriculum to make the learning of our students both rich and informative. I have also worked closely with colleagues to utilize the Common Core State Standards and our Literacy curriculum to be sure each student in my class is receiving instruction that delivers the information they need to be successful and achieve success with the new standards that are now in place.

As mentioned, I have worked with both first and second grade students. I also tutor children in third and fourth grade. I have had exposure to all grade levels k-6 through long term substitute positions, teaching positions, and student teaching.

I am Orton-Gillingham Literacy trained. I also have had two years at Literacy How with experts in phonics instruction.

My goal for each student I work with is to create an environment where learning is fun and engaging. I believe that reading is so important and therefore I want to teach my students to love and care about their learning. I also believe in delivering my instruction through each modality of the body, therefore allowing each student to learn through multiple pathways.

I am qualified to tutor students in Common Core State Standards because as a Stamford Public Schools teacher, I must use these standards with my students each day. Furthermore, I have been given the opportunity to work with our literacy facilitator to align the Common Core State Standards with key focuses for our students during their Language Arts block of time. These standards have been absorbed in my classroom and used daily with my students.

Phonics

I have been Orton-Gillingham trained. This approach believes that through multi-sensory activities and lessons, students will be able to absorb the six syllable types that create most of the words in the English language. This literacy approach also tackles many ways to teach "red" words or sight words to elementary school students.
