About Me:
I am a retired teacher with over twenty years of experience and a long history of success in working with students who were struggling to read and write. I have a Master's degree in Reading and Writing K-12, and certification in both Elementary Education and Reading. With my experience and rapport with students, I can make a difference in your child's academic life. My goal is to make sure that every student learns to the best of his or her ability. In addition, I am an author with three published books. Two are novels and one is a poetry book.

My Methods:
I work with students one on one building on their strengths and instilling in them the joy of learning by starting with what they know and constantly encouraging them. As long as a student is engaged and enjoying what they are doing they will learn. For example, I help them with their homework by reteaching anything they missed and making sure they have a full understanding of the assignment. I use a variety of methods depending on what your child needs to help him or her attain their goals.
