As an elementary classroom teacher for over twenty years, I wanted to help each student achieve the most they could in the time we had together. Through individual tutoring, I hope to provide focused learning opportunities for students who seek to achieve all they can. Taking the time to understand each student's learning needs will be a priority.
In elementary math, a concrete understanding of concepts enables the proficient use of mathematical symbols and expressions. My instructional methods include many ways to represent and manipulate numbers and operations in order to gain a deeper knowledge of the math processes.
Reading comprehension is dependent upon active engagement of the student through the use of various strategies. Teaching those strategies and providing practice in their use is the focus of my reading instruction.
Grammar instruction includes not only teaching the structural rules, but also providing practice in the context of authentic written expression.
In every area of instruction, students need the opportunity to develop strategies and skills that are suited to meet their particular learning needs. If a student struggles with a particular concept or subject area, finding practical ways to overcome those obstacles is my goal. I hope to encourage young learners to find success in their educational journey.
I look forward to the opportunity to help students reach a place of academic self-confidence and achievement.
