I am a veteran teacher with thirteen years of teaching experience. I have worked with students ranging from three years old up to twenty-one, with varying ability levels. In the past four years, I've enjoyed working at the elementary level adapting reading and math curriculum to work with students in those core subjects. I'm trained in the Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory reading program. Along with academic instruction, I work with students on behavior management, daily living skills, and organization/executive functioning skills.
I believe in meeting the student at their level and utilizing multi-modal techniques in my teaching. Students need hands-on materials along with visual and auditory instruction.

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.
