About Harriet

I am a professional educator with 40 years' experience in teaching reading grades K - 12 and elementary math to students experiencing difficulty in mastering prerequisite skills. I am presently employed part-time as a Field Implementation Service Specialist. My company is the largest provider of Intervention Curriculums in the United States. I train teachers, all over the United States and Puerto Rico, in best teaching practices. I have worked closely with the Manatee, Sarasota and Hillsborough County School Districts. I am weary, however, of traveling and want to work near my home. In addition to teaching, I coordinated and managed highly successful volunteer tutoring programs with Vanderbilt University students and Senior Citizens, Inc. While a Reading Specialist in Nashville, Tennessee, I was honored to be selected as the 1999 PENCIL, Adopt-A-School Exemplary School Coordinator. I am also experienced in training faculties, community agencies, and parents with knowledge of successful reading strategies. I have an engaging personality and make learning fun for my students. I would appreciate the opportunity to work with you and your child. I have researched based, highly effective, reading and math materials to use while working with your child. I also have access to fantastic on-line programs which your child can access 24 hours a day. When he/she says, "No homework, tonight," you will have an option in place which will keep them engaged and learning!
