About Tami

I have been teaching in the public school system for over 30 years. I am currently a Reading Teacher. My passion is teaching students reading. I have extensive knowledge in phonemic awareness, phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency. I am able to assess your child's reading and determine your child's strengths and weaknesses. After determining the strengths and weaknesses, I will plan lessons to help your child to become proficient in reading.

I have received a Bachelor of Science degree, a Master's Degree, and a Sixth Year Degree from the University of Connecticut. I hold the following Connecticut Teaching Certifications:
#001 PreK-Grade 8; #102 Remedial Reading and Language Arts; and # 097 Reading and Language Arts Consultant.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Phonics

My qualifications to teach phonics include extensive course work at the college level at the University of Connecticut. I hold a Connecticut teacher certification in Remedial Reading, which includes extensive knowledge in phonics. I have been an elementary teacher for over 30 years. The past 8 years I have been teaching Remedial Reading to students in grades Kindergarten through Grade 5. Phonics instruction is one of the major components in reading instruction.
