Hello,
I have several years experience tutoring and teaching in Palm Beach County. I am Florida certified teacher with certification in the following areas: math, biology, reading, elementary education, ESOL and gifted.
I have a bachelor's degree in science and a master's degree in education. My master's degree focused on english language learners. I specialize in second language acquisition and building reading skills in beginning readers as well as all areas of math and science.
I have many references including families that I have worked with for 5 years. All of my students receive support in study skills, test taking strategies, and direct instruction.
I am also a certified yoga instructor. I currently run a yoga club at my school and have several years' experience in teaching yoga to children. I use some of the stretching and breathing techniques in my tutoring sessions as a means to lower stress and raise awareness.
I look forward to being a part of your child's educational success!
Thanks!
Heather

Yoga

Yoga

I teach yoga to children and adults. Children love the breathing techniques and easy relaxation that I teach them. My students use it before a test to center themselves, calm anxiety, and feel more confident in themselves. In addition to the mental benefits, yoga offers a physical workout combining stretching and strength building. We can tailor the hour to fit the needs of the student, some need more relaxation and stress reduction while others need both physical activity and stress reduction.

Outstanding tutor

My child just completed her tutor sessions with heather for geometry. Finding heather was a godsend for us-- she is caring, patient and compassionate. She put my child at ease and her math anxiety has finally begun to disappear and I see an improvement in her performance. Heather is everything a teacher should be. I recommend her highly.
