Let me help you reach your educational goals.
I have a strong educational background of particular use in tutoring. My Master's Degree in Reading and certification as a Reading Specialist gives me an understanding of how to identify reading problems as well as techniques for solving them. My own life-long love of reading and extensive knowledge of children's literature is useful in suggesting the books that match the child's reading ability, whether helping the student with specific homework or practicing general skills. There is always the goal of not just improving reading and comprehension skills, but also encouraging a different relationship with books and the written word.

I have 17 years working in education, including 13 years in Chicago Public Schools. I have taught and tutored in Kindergarten through 8th grade. I have taught many subjects, such as math, social studies, writing, spelling, and science. Greater understanding and success in these subjects helps the student see them as interesting and fun.

Regardless of the subject, I am accomplished at helping students improve study and organizational habits and skills. This leads to greater confidence and educational growth.

I believe that tutoring can be fun and helpful to you and your child. Tutoring allows one-on-one concentration in specific areas that need improvement, and can utilize creative strategies and skills to make the time productive and engaging.
