About Valerie

My name is Valerie and my passion is working with students. I graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a reading endorsement from Virginia Tech University. I have 9 years' classroom teaching experience. I have taught all subjects grades 1-4. I have been an elementary reading specialist for the past 10 years. I have provided reading interventions for students in grades K-5. I have also tutored many individual students over the past 20 years. I have successfully worked with general ed students as well as students with IEPS. I am happy to provide recommendations upon request.

Teaching students one-on-one is the most rewarding and exciting part of being a teacher. Well designed lessons to meet the individual needs of students accelerate student progress and help build a student's self-esteem. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss your child's academic strengths and weakness, and design an individual program to help your child reach his/her potential.

Approved subjects

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.
