About Gina

My love and passion for teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. I know that hard work and dedication are the ingredients to success and it's the greatest feeling when I can help my students achieve their fullest potential with self-confidence and a love for learning.

By obtaining my Master's in Literacy and being dual certified in Elementary Education and Special Education, I possess the ability to develop and implement strategies and techniques that are tailored to fit a student's individual needs. Strategies may include problem solving and higher level thinking. Students can take the strategies and apply them to all content areas including math, science and social studies. As a reading specialist, I can focus on specific areas of difficulty. The goal is for the student to use reading strategies independently to achieve their maximum potential and succeed in school. Working one-to-one or in small groups maximizes the chances the student will reach their goal. Through monitoring their progress, I can differentiate learning so they are always challenged, but not overwhelmed.

Technology is an essential component to success. There are many interactive programs, audio technology, visual technology, speech software and other forms of technology to assist children in learning how to read and gain comprehension skills. There may be lessons when I use the iPad or other programs to motivate and engage the student. The more motivated they are, the more successful they will be at any task. I will provide resources such as book lists, websites, apps and strategies to parents for extended learning at home.

I take teaching very seriously and am always open to feedback from parents. I will always address any concerns and work together with parents to resolve a problem. I am very flexible, but I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. I understand things may come up last minute and will work with you to make up the session if need be. A quiet environment would be best suitable for the student in order to maximize our session together.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping your child achieve success in school!
