Will this COVID thing ever go away? I can't imagine what you as parents are going through in making decisions about your child's education. I am here to help your student who may be studying online this year. I have been teaching classes online since March so I do well navigating around the computer while teaching. I have taught New York Engage Math online if you need an extra hand teaching that curriculum. I have taught many other math curriculums as well as reading, writing, and social studies. I am proficient in teaching early music skills too like reading music and easy music theory. I hold a professional teacher license for elementary education k-12.
Since my BA is in Psychology, I hold enough credits to certify in secondary social studies. I try to find out the student's learning style and teach them how to learn the material on their own using their learning style. My goal is to have the students teach themselves as much as possible by giving them the techniques they need to learn the material.
I have a unique way of teaching elementary math. One lesson plan I had was on rounding. This is a concept that can be very difficult for students. So I have a family of ducks trying to cross a busy road. It has a center line (5). If the ducks are to that center line, it would be faster to finish running across the road (6-9). If they are not to the center line yet, it would be faster to turn around and run back to the original side (1-4). Then when we get to a number, I ask them if it would be faster to turn around and run back or finish running across? Many students then are able to visualize this and can round either up or down.
Please feel free to contact me. I am available most evenings Monday-Friday and will meet either at the student's home or the local library. I do require at least a four hour cancellation notice. The first meeting would be a free consultation visit to determine the needs of the student and how I can be of assistance.

She is great at what she does!Cecil, 20 lessons with Peggy
She figured out in the first 30 minutes that my daughter wasn't struggling with reading comprehension, but reading in context of her other classes. Looking forward to seeing her excel with Peggy!Deanna, 21 lessons with Peggy
