Bio

I HATE reading! And math is Greek! This was my life going through elementary and middle school! I understand my students' struggles because I hated reading due to comprehension problems. I have learned to read well and enjoy it!

I have taught fourth grade math, science, and language arts as well as music for first through fourth grades. I have taught kindergarten and first grade reading and writing. I hold a professional teacher license for elementary education k-12.

I HATE reading! And math is Greek! This was my life going through elementary and middle school! I understand my students' struggles because I hated reading due to comprehension problems. I have learned to read well and enjoy it!

I have taught fourth grade math, science, and language arts as well as music for first through fourth grades. I have taught kindergarten and first grade reading and writing. 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.

Great Teacher

Peggy made a point of getting to know the area where my child struggles and made the lesson enjoyable for him. He’s excited to go back.

Brandy, 27 lessons with Peggy

Caring and patient.

Peggy is a patient and easy going tutor who knows how to engage my daughter in learning and trys to make the lesson fun and not too boring. I think for my child that helps! Did I mention she brings her own materials and loves kids?

Heather, 30 lessons with Peggy

Great Piano Lessons

Peggy gives my child the correct feedback and encouragement he needs to get excited and motivated for each lesson. She is wonderful at communicating with me about lessons and how to be prepared as a parent to make everything be successful for my child. Her positive approach makes the whole experience perfect.

She is great at what she does!

Just awesome!

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!
