I have had a very successful career in education and during my tenure I have taught 2-8 grades. I have experience working with all levels of children from ESE to Gifted. I enjoy seeing the smile on a child's face when they finally "get it!."
Throughout the duration of my career I have learned how important it is to have a child's trust in order to make gains.
My students know that it is alright to make a mistake and not to get upset. I am very patient, understanding, and kind person and my goal for all of my students is to become successful, self reliant people.
I am currently a certified Florida educator and am endorsed in Gifted, ESOL, and ESE. My tutoring experience has lead to many successes. Many of my students were having a lot of difficulty with specific subjects, and have improved enough to move on to the next level. I have helped students with their writing, comprehension, math, and reading fluency. The children enjoy their time with me because there is no stress involved, but much joy when the they are successful.
To all of the children out there who might need a little help, please know that my desire is to make learning fun! I want to help everyone become the best they can be!!

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 have had 36 years of successful teaching and many years helping individual students make progress and achieve understanding of difficult topics. Being a Reading Coach I was able to assist children with the skills necessary to pass FSA by having them read in depth and analyze material in order for them to answer questions correctly. I work with all of my students in a warm, caring environment and am constantly studying and researching methods to help children master Common Core skills.
I have had 36 years of successful teaching in all elementary subjects. My skills have helped children keep and maintain the skills necessary to be competent and pass all of the state tests given to move to the next level.
I have a Reading Endorsement from the State of Florida. Using those skills I have worked with all of my students to use grammar correctly in their writing and speaking. I stress writing and speaking in full sentences using correct language and grammar to complete assignments. It is extremely important to me that students understand the importance of using that skill in their completed activities.
I have used Saxon Phonics successfully for many years as well as Starfall. My younger students showed steady growth throughout the year.
