About Tonja

Let me begin by saying that my goal in becoming an educator was to have an impact on young lives. I thought long and hard about what is involved in the education process. Knowing that I could not only educate but also be a role model to children brings me great joy. I realize that no two children or the same & learning and teaching needs to be adapted to fit the need of the individual child.

I have been an elementary tutor for four years. I have tutored in all elementary academic subjects. With experience in summer school and after school programs, I am skilled with developing lesson to motivate and engage students. I understand that good communication with the parent and student is the key to successful learning.

In addition to elementary, I have approximately two and a half years of experience with GED readiness.

Really looking for to working with you and our child to make them be and feel successful.

I am very knowledgeable in the Reading First Concept. My masters degree is in Adult Education and Reading.

My current teaching position is in Math and Science. In past years, my students have grown by 90% from the previous years. Lastly, I have a true passion for math and science.

I have seven years of Saxon Phonics experience.

My style of teaching is a direct hands on approach. I truly believe that every child has the capacity to learn. Please allow me the opportunity to work with you and your child to help them to become the best that they can be.
