I'm an enthusiastic, loyal and hard-working teacher with over 20 years experience! I have a long tradition of great rapport with everyone from young kids to adults. Have helped kids learn to read, gain confidence and feel like they can succeed! Presently I work for the school district in addition to after school programs specializing in tutoring and helping elementary school age kids. I have a genuine love of teaching and watching kids grow and learn. Also I have a personal love of reading, music, the arts, cooking, gardening and being with my family.

I have been teaching since I graduated college - beginning with teaching Hebrew School to third graders three days a week at an after-school supplementary program. I traveled to Israel and attended University there obtaining a degree is teaching English as a second language. I was an English teacher there for 2 years and then moved back to America. I have continued teaching in after school supplementary programs and have worked with Sylvan Learning Center for over 5 years. I love helping students learn, succeed and grow academically!

I have worked with students as young as pre-k all the way to high school seniors. Prior to that. Taught English as a second language abroad to middle and high school students. I have watched children who could not read sight words move to being able to read at grade level with the right support and encouragement. I have a double BA as well as certification in teaching English as a second language.

I have worked with students of all ages as a reading teacher from elementary school all the way to high school. I have assisted students with learning issues and behavioral challenges.
