I am a passionate educator with 7 years of elementary education experience. I taught third grade in a school in the suburbs of Chicago for 7 years. I love teaching and have a passion for helping kids reach their potential.

I have taught to the common core state standards for many years and love teaching math with a hands-on approach. In order for students to fully grasp a concept, they must have a strong number sense. Building number sense, using manipulatives and breaking apart numbers in many ways makes my math instruction unique and effective.

My research and experience has concluded that strength in vocabulary equals strength as a reader. I use different techniques to build vocabulary as well as using real texts to teach different reading skills. Students who struggle with reading can be reluctant but I have a track record for getting students of all levels to love reading.

I have done extensive research on the CCSS and have taught to the standards for a number of years. While some teachers reluctantly teach standards, I teach students. Through this, the standards are met.

I have seven years of teaching experience and have, year after year, earned excellent ratings on my formal evaluations. I take my passion and bring it to me students.

I am excited to get to know your child and pass my love of learning onto them. I have experience with English Language Learners, students with IEPs, students performing well below grade level and gifted students. These unique experiences make me an ideal candidate to tutor your child.
