I love tutoring children! I currently work in the Manatee County School District; my first year as a substitute teacher and the past six years as a teachers assistant. I specialize in reading remediation groups for ESE (Exceptional Student Education) children in inclusion classrooms. In addition, I have worked for two after school tutoring programs at my school for K-1 students in need of phonics and reading remediation.

I am currently enrolled in the ABCTE program (American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence) for certification in Elementary Education (K-6) and the Reading Certificate. I have a B.A. in English Literature.

What I want to bring to your child is a balanced approach to reading; I want to focus not only on your child's reading ability but also on your child's comprehension, and in the process make it as pleasant and fun as possible!

One successful approach is to use text and materials that your child has an interest in. If he/she loves cars then let's delve into the world of NASCAR. Interested in wolves or astronomy? Let's read about them! Whatever he/she loves will help us to create a fantastic learning experience.

In the process, depending upon age, we will also learn about characters, settings, plot, sequence of events, connections to their life, vin diagrams, using an E plan when writing, and/or whatever else is grade appropriate.

To be able to inspire your child to enjoy reading and writing while learning to do them well is my goal.
