About Conni

I am a certified teacher with a background in elementary education. I have also tutored junior high students in all subjects. I believe that teaching through games is quite effective and fun for the students with whom I work. I have spent a good deal of time working with students with learning disabilities, giving them strategies that help them achieve. These strategies also work with students who do not have disabilities. I have had a wide range of experience teaching pre-K through 8th grade.

Since I was an English major, I am well versed in writing, editing, and grammar. I have enjoyed considerable success in teaching reading to the non-reader, from age 5 through age 15. I have a variety of strategies I use, which varies with each student. I feel that each person is an individual that has his/her own special way of learning. I try to match the teaching method to the learning style. I am also fluent in sign language.
