##### About Lee

I have a Masters of Science in Elementary Education. I have been Certified K - 6 for over 20 years in the State of Connecticut.

I have been a classroom teacher for twenty years. I have taught third and fourth grade. I have worked with a wide range of students over the years with a variety of strengths and needs. In addition to that I have also worked with a number of ESL students as well . Finally, I have raised three children of my own and helped them with their homework and academic needs. So I have experienced the needs of students from both inside and outside the classroom over the years.

I understand that sometimes, confidence is the area of concern, that any academic area can become confusing at any time for many students. The opportunity to work quietly in a low stress, one on one environment can sometimes be the key to unlocking a child's confusion around a subject. I am able to provide patient explanations and a way to apply that comprehension to classroom expectations.

I have had many years in my classroom working with a wide range of readers. I have consistently had success with helping students learn to think about the words on the page so that they truly understand what they are reading. I have worked with students who need basic phonics understanding, to students whose area of concern is a more challenging ability to understand context clues and to make meaning from their reading.

Since the introduction of Common Core, I have worked cohesively with my colleagues to understand the Common Core Standards as they relate to learning in the classroom. I have worked to breakdown the language in the standards as it can be applied to child friendly concepts with success in reading, writing and math skills.

I have had 20 years experience as a public school elementary teacher. In addition I have participated in numerous workshops and conference to stay informed about changes in curriculum, educational standards and student development.

I am looking forward to working with your child to help him or her become a confident and successful student.
