Bio

I am an experienced classroom teacher with 22 years of service in elementary schools. I have a specialist degree in Special Education and served as a school based support teacher in an elementary school.

In that position, I helped classroom teachers modify programs for students experiencing difficulty with the curriculum. I also withdrew some children for extra tutoring in basic skills. I have taught kindergarten through 8th grade.

I am an experienced classroom teacher with 22 years of service in elementary schools. I have a specialist degree in Special Education and served as a school based support teacher in an elementary school.

In that position, I helped classroom teachers modify programs for students experiencing difficulty with the curriculum. I also withdrew some children for extra tutoring in basic skills. I have taught kindergarten through 8th grade.

I am currently tutoring a fourth grade student in writing and math. We are both enjoying the experience. We spend an hour together twice a week. He is now able to write full page stories and essays - something he found impossible to complete when we first began working together. He has demonstrated good understanding of math concepts and is now better able to complete course work efficiently. I would love to help more young children improve their basic reading, writing and math skills.

I have had extensive experience in the teaching of basic math skills and concepts to students in kindergarten to 5th grade.

I am an accomplished reading teacher and am familiar with reading techniques. I am able to help with sight word recognition, phonics instruction, and word patterns.

I possess an Elementary School Teacher's Certificate, a Specialist Degree in Special Education and a degree in Early Childhood Education. I am also fluently bilingual in English and French.

I have a solid knowledge of early reading stages and can facilitate the learning of letter and sound recognition, word patterns, blends, and endings.

I am ready to work with both parents and their children to strengthen basic skills. It is important for children to feel successful and competent. I would like to help build that confidence.
