Bio

I have a lifelong passion for helping children learn and reach their full potential. In 1983, I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Elementary Education, and I have spent the years since teaching at the grade school, high school, and college level.

I have a lifelong passion for helping children learn and reach their full potential. In 1983, I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Elementary Education, and I have spent the years since teaching at the grade school, high school, and college level. As an elementary teacher for over twenty years, I recognize the need for teaching strong, phonics-based reading skills, foundational study habits, and memorization techniques. I also work hard to implement an exciting, fun approach to education. For the last eight years, I have operated a homeschool co-op, where I have worked closely with each student, helping children and teenagers (some with special needs) to better understand their class work and excel in each area of study. I enjoy working with children and teens in and out of the classroom; for the last thirty-five years, I have also been heavily involved in Children's Ministries at the local churches I have attended. I look forward to helping your child discover the joy of learning!

Phonics

Phonics is the teaching of reading through a systematic application of the sounds that letters make and the combination of those letters to make words. Phonics is a basic tool to teach reading in a orderly and reasonable manner. I have a degree in elementary education and have taught phonics for thirty years. I have taught on the elementary level and have taught teaching reading on the college level with a concentration in phonics. I have developed a phonics-based curriculum.

Study Skills

I have been teaching and tutoring for over thirty years in a broad scope of subjects. Study skills are methodical skills that I model and help the student apply to specific subject content and type, such as homework, projects, or test preparation. Before a student can properly study, they need to understand the subject content. I first assess the student's knowledge of the content, and then I teach the subject content and give opportunity for application and reinforcement. After subject content is learned, study skills are taught, modeled, and applied.

Voice (Music)

I have taught children's music for thirty years, including directing children's choirs and musical productions. I have taught basic music theory in the choirs I have directed and taught a class on teaching elementary music on the college level. I have traveled in music groups across the country and have had voice training on the college level. I work with children and teens in developing vocal skills and techniques to attain quality sound and ease of production. I love music, along with my family. My husband majored in voice in college and my daughter majored in piano. Music plays a great role in our family.

Patient and Great with kids

My kids were very comfortable and were so proud of themselves. Mrs. Ginger was very patient with them both and the confidence boost is a plus. Can’t wait to see the progress.

Tutoring for 4th grade math

Ginger was really great! My son received an hour of math tutoring and Ginger was very efficient with going over what my son was working on in class. Would recommend!

Kelly, 3 lessons with Ginger

Patient, knowledgeable tutor that brings results

My daughter has been tutoring with Ginger for a year and we couldn't be happier. She has given our daughter confidence and we've seen a significant improvement in her grades. We are so blessed to have found her.

Very nice and engaging

Working with my 7 year old on concepts she missed in kindergarten due to a terrible year. She assessed her this week and feels it will not take long to help her at all. We have worried about how far she is behind for a year. Super excited to see where she takes her in the weeks to come!

Theresa, 24 lessons with Ginger

Knowledgeable, fun, and caring!!

Ginger was AMAZING!! My 7 year old LOVED his time with her and called it FUN! She educated him with reading and everything associated with that.. He struggles with reading and spelling and she gave us a great book to help and tips to help him with spelling. I definitely would refer her to any child!

Sheila, 1 lesson with Ginger

Very attentive and really conveys her objectives to help Sean succeed.

Very attentive and really conveys her objectives to help Sean succeed. I think the tools she has identified are very suitable. I love that they are God based.

Improvement seen in just a short time!

My seven year old son's handwriting was illegible. Because of this, he was scoring very low on some of his school assignments. Sometimes the answers weren't wrong; you just couldn't read them. He started lessons with Mrs. Ginger, and his hand writing improved in just a few short weeks. Last week, his teacher told me that he had written his best story ever! I highly recommend Mrs. Ginger, and my son thinks she is very nice too!

Donna, 17 lessons with Ginger

Tutor of the year!

Ginger has been working with my 7 year old son who has been struggling with reading and phonics. He recently passed his first spelling test of the year. We are very fortunate to have her tutor our child and would recommend her highly!

Nicholas, 18 lessons with Ginger

Wonderful teacher, thank you so much for teaching both of my kids.

I really thank you that I found a wonderful teacher like Mrs. Ginger. She is a wonderful teacher and patient for my kids. She likes to explain all the detail that my kids need to do for writing and reading too. My kids love her and are really excited to meet her. I saw a lot improving for my kids writing skill and creative and put more detail when they wrote stories or sentences. I will continue lessons with Mrs. Ginger.
