I am a mother of 5 and grandmother of 10 children who is certified for 3-6 year old Montessori students. I have taught in Montessori schools for the past 15 years. I have also been a teacher's aide in a behavior disorders classroom for intermediate grade level students in a public school. I have been a teacher's aide in a mainstream first grade classroom, working one on one with a student with behavior disorders as well.
Currently, I am a nanny for a family with 6 children aged 9-15, and I am a dance teacher for two local park districts. I nanny in the hours before school and teach dance to students aged 2-16 a few days a week after school and on Saturday mornings. I'm interested in tutoring because I love teaching and would like to do so in a one on one fashion.

I have taught many children to read using the Montessori method of hands on learning. Children remember that I was the one who taught them to read, which I think is a very good testimony.

I have helped older elementary students who are struggling or don't "like school or learning." I make learning fun and show them examples, in everyday life, of how important learning can be. When a student realizes the usefulness of learning something, it becomes less of a challenge and more of an adventure.

The Montessori schools have a unique three step approach to learning letter sounds and combinations of letters, which create other sounds. Depending on the age of the student there are a variety of ways to use this method.

If you want to have fun discovering how exciting it can be to learn, I'm the person you need to call. I look forward to starting a new adventure in learning with you!

Handwriting

I have taught handwriting to students starting at age 4. I use the Montessori method of tracing a letter with the fingers on sandpaper then they make the letter from memory in a sand or rice tray. After success with the tracing and memory, they use chalk on a chalkboard, then use a chalkboard with lines like lined paper. Finally, they practice using pencil on large lined paper and then smaller lined paper.
