I am currently a first grade teacher that has been in the public school system for the last 21 years. I have taught all grades in elementary school and have a Master's in Reading And Literacy. I am also trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching struggling learners to have success in all areas of language. If you are not familiar with this teaching style, the focus is on students that have possible issues with attention (ADD, ADHD) dyslexia, and struggling learners known as slow learners. I have had years of success in the classroom and even taught my own nieces and nephews after school with this approach. I encourage parents to be a part of my sessions so that you become an expert on how to have success with your child. The level of confidence will change quickly and your child will become independent with success in the classroom! I am here to help both of you and know that your child will look forward to our time together to unlock the doors to the mystery that has been a struggle so far in the classroom. I hope to hear all your needs and concerns soon.

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.
I have worked in inclusion classrooms for 15 of my 21 years. I have students with ADD and ADHD in my room with great success. I use hands on learning, tactile support, balance balls for core engagement and music to support the need for multiple learning styles. I also teach the children yoga to support personal control over their bodies. I do not believe you must medicate a child to teach them success.
I have a B.S.in Early Childhood Education from the University of North Georgia class of 1993. I earned my Masters of Education from Walden University in 2008. I have a current Teaching certificate in Georgia with a T5 qualification and 21 years of teaching experience in Cobb and Paulding counties.
I have taught both print and handwriting to all ages from pre-K. I am well versed in both Zaner Bloser and D'Nealian handwriting forms. I also use any differentiated techniques to support students with fine motor muscle control and development.
I have been teaching students for 21 years; over half have been in first grade. I have been trained with Sitton phonics, Saxon phonics , and Orton Gillingham. I am highly qualified to help any child learn to understand the rules of spelling, decoding and ultimately reading and writing.
I have taught children for the last 21 years the value of good study habits, I focus on organization, not taking skills, peer support, and parents communicating with the classroom teachers. It has to be a team effort to help students learn the value of good study habits and time management.
