Bio

Hi there! I have made a career out of helping young people reach their potential and find their love of learning. I have taught elementary school for 13 years, and truly enjoy finding the way that each child learns best. There is no “one size fits all” method! Each child is unique, and the key to their success is figuring out how they learn best! You are your child’s first teacher, and it’s important to me that we partner in your child’s education so that, together, we can help them...

Hi there! I have made a career out of helping young people reach their potential and find their love of learning. I have taught elementary school for 13 years, and truly enjoy finding the way that each child learns best. There is no “one size fits all” method! Each child is unique, and the key to their success is figuring out how they learn best! You are your child’s first teacher, and it’s important to me that we partner in your child’s education so that, together, we can help them succeed!

I have been trained in multiple different programs, educational paradigms and pedagogies, and am flexible depending on your child’s strengths and areas of opportunities. I would love to gather input from their current and former teachers, and together we can create a plan that works best for your child.

My Masters degree is in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Elementary Math and Science. Math is all about puzzles, and there isn’t just one way to solve a problem. Traditional algorithms work great for some people, but not all. I believe in understanding the concept behind why the algorithm works, not just memorizing it. That way, students can truly understand what they are doing conceptually, which will inevitably help them understand math better! I think that Science is one of the most enjoyable subjects for students, and often is the key for getting kids to enjoy school. It is a subject that really allows kids to get their hands dirty and explore! Instead of a conceptual “paper and pencil” subject, it is concrete!

Reading and Writing are my favorites! One of the most rewarding aspects of teaching, to me, is to see the light in a child’s eyes when they finally start to “get it”. When all those squiggly symbols on paper start turning into words, and words turn into stories, the enthusiasm a child has is unmatched. The whole world opens up for them, and they are no longer learning to read, but reading to learn. Similarly, when that translates to writing, and a child can put their imagination on paper, they become an author. When a child sees themselves as a Reader and a Writer, it is so rewarding to sit back and watch them fly!

Phonics is such a foundational piece to learning to read and write, and one that is often a hole in a child’s educational progression. With holes in phonics, reading and writing eventually get challenging - even for kids who have never had difficulty with these subjects before. I have also been trained in multiple Phonics programs, and enjoy finding those holes and filling them for children!

I look forward to meeting with your children and learning with them side by side! Feel free to contact me with any questions or a free consultation!
