School can be frustrating and overwhelming for a child when there are roadblocks to their learning. My desire is to remove those roadblocks and equip your student with simple and effective tools to put them on the road to success. My training includes an intense phonics program and effective and easy to understand teaching of all subjects on the elementary and middle school level.

My desire is to remove those roadblocks and equip your student with simple and effective tools to put them on the road to success.

I am a 3rd year teacher at Friendship Christian School. I finished high school and college with a 4.0 GPA. I have been working with children on a weekly basis for the last 12 years, helping them reach their potential in various academic areas. My desire is to listen closely to what the parent feels their child needs, while at the same time evaluating which approach would be best to help the child learn and reach their potential. I look forward to helping your child learn!

As an elementary education major, I have taken many classes on teaching reading. Phonics is the base of learning to read, but once that foundation has been laid, the student must begin to read at a more advanced level. I believe that the more you read, the better you read! It is important to instill a love of reading in a child so that they may excel in this area.
