Arizona State University (Elementary Education)
Arizona State University (Master's)
I have a strong passion for reading and helping students find success and enjoyment in literacy. I am a certified elementary school teacher and just finished getting my master's degree in literacy education. I find joy in helping students build their confidence and seeing them make progress beyond what they believed they could achieve.
I specialize in reading (phonics, grammar, spelling, etc.) and writing instruction. I tailor the instruction for each tutoring session to the individual needs of each student. Every session includes time for read aloud, student selected reading, writing, and a skill/strategy. All of these elements are necessary components for increasing a child’s reading, and have been carefully selected to promote literacy development.
I want students to feel excitement and enjoyment during the tutoring process. My goal is for students to feel success and confidence during the reading process so that they will become lifelong readers.
I am available to tutor every day during the week, and meet with students in public locations for the safety and comfort of all involved. My rate is $40 per hour, but I provide a discount for families who prepay for a package of sessions. I also offer a free tutoring session for families that refer me to other students. Contact me for more information on my specific policies.
Before tutoring begins, I meet with families for a free consultation meeting. This meeting is used to outline my policies, develop a familiarity with the student, and gather background information on the student's needs and progress. Parents will be provided with activities and tools they can use at home to assist their child. In addition, parents will receive a monthly progress report.
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you and your child!

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.
I am a certified elementary school teacher. I have taught for the past three years. I also have my master's degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis on literacy education.
