Bio

I have a lifelong love of teaching and learning. As a former elementary school teacher, I am experienced teaching grades three through six. Additionally, as an assessment editor, I am experienced in developing standardized tests aligned to English Language Arts for grades three through ten.

I have a lifelong love of teaching and learning. As a former elementary school teacher, I am experienced teaching grades three through six. Additionally, as an assessment editor, I am experienced in developing standardized tests aligned to English Language Arts for grades three through ten.

I am proficient in tutoring all subjects in grades K-6, but I specialize in tutoring Reading, Language, and Writing. I firmly believe that all students can learn and achieve through individualized instruction and building on the skills they already have. I evaluate students' existing abilities and then set short and long-term goals, helping students achieve their goals through engaging, challenging, and student-driven activities. I assign short follow-up assignments to reinforce their learning in tutoring sessions. I maintain open communication with parents, and a progress report is provided to parents at the end of each tutoring session.

I maintain the highest standards and value parental input and feedback. I never invoice for a session in which a parent is not completely satisfied.

There is a 24-hour cancellation policy for lessons, but I do offer opportunities for make-up lessons. Tutoring lessons are available in my home or in a mutually agreed upon location.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve success!

Elementary (K-6th)

As a teacher, I taught grades two, three, five, and six; my teaching license was for all elementary school grades. In my classroom, I taught all subjects (Reading, English, Spelling, Writing, Handwriting, Math, Social Studies, and Science), and emphasized Reading comprehension and Writing in all subjects. Additionally, as an ELA assessment editor, I have written test questions for standardized assessments for grades one through eleven for Reading, Language, and Writing.
Handwriting,

Handwriting

As an elementary school teacher, I taught handwriting, both Zane Bloser (block) and D'Nealian. Typically, for print, I like to focus on 3 or 4 letters per week, and for cursive, I like to focus on 1 or 2 letters per week. I give students time to practice new letters and review previously learned letters using fun writing exercises.
Phonics,

Phonics

As a second grade teacher, phonics instruction was just one component in my Reading program, helping to build a classroom of capable readers with strong word decoding skills. I used Systematic phonics instruction which included a carefully selected set of letter-sound relationships that were organized into a logical sequence. I also provided plenty of opportunities for students to apply what they were learning about letters and sounds to the reading of words, sentences, and stories.
