I have been tutoring students in County School system, as well as private elementary schools in the county for the past three years. My experience has primarily been with students from kindergarten through grade 6 with basic subjects. I have tutored math, science, reading and writing. I also assist with organizational skills. I have provided enjoyable educational experiences with students in a variety of ways, including working with students on computers.

I was as a tutor for a private school for Dyslexia for 2 years, and provided classroom instruction. I received multi-sensory specialized training while there to assist students with comprehension and retention in reading, writing, and math. I have provided tutoring in study skills and test-taking preparation.

Summary of Experience: I have over ten years of teaching experience with public school system children, and students from the elementary private schools. Five years of my experience has been as a School Psychologist, grades k-12 providing psychological testing.

I have served as a psychological consultant and made recommendations to a local mental health clinic and to the school system. I was an Elementary Guidance Counselor in Florida.

I inspire students in making learning enjoyable!
