As a veteran teacher who taught in New Hampshire for 20 years, I hope to continue serving students in my retirement. I am passionate about the work and just love it when the light comes on and students "get it" after a struggle. I am a proven educator who can provide that little extra that makes all the difference. My strengths are elementary math, phonics/spelling, reading and the three forms of writing (narrative, expository and opinion). Let me help bring successful learning to your child.
I believe that reading is the key to all learning. By identifying specifically where a student needs improvement I can provide the structure necessary for success.
Participation in a cadre of teacher K-12 in a partnership with the New Hampshire Department of Education, I became fully versed in College and Career Readiness Standards and designed professional development opportunities that were shared throughout the state as well as my local district.
I look at mathematics as a continuum that follows a logical sequence for understanding allows students to develop mathematical thinking. Students must understand the relationships between operations in order to master them. Once this is accomplished these operations can be used to extend thinking and understanding.
Phonics is what makes it possible to crack the code in both reading and spelling. Using proven methods and extended practice allows students to develop an ear for the English language and become expert code crackers.
Please give me a cal for a meet and great. We can sit and talk about your goals for success and what I can do to help you reach those goals.

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.
