About Roy

I'm a retired 3rd grade teacher who still has an enthusiasm for working with kids. I spent many happy years in Glastonbury's 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades and have extensive subbing experience in grades 1-4. Reading, writing, and math are all favorites of mine. I've often taught using the Everyday Math program used by many area school systems as well as the Empowering Writers program and Cast A Spell.
I'm a firm believer in education being both relevant to students' daily lives and enriching.

My goal would be to have my tutoring sessions interesting enough so students would look forward to each an every meeting.
