My teaching career has been comprised of 27.5 years of teaching elementary school. Since my retirement, I have worked at a private tutoring facility, as well as tutored on my own.
I have always found great joy in working with children. Not only do I hope to instill a love of learning, I also hope to encourage and build self-esteem in each and every child I teach.
I primarily taught elementary math in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. I also taught two years of Title I math in grades 2-6.
I have a great love of reading and thoroughly enjoy teaching it. There is nothing better than seeing the light in a child's eyes when he/she "gets" what reading is all about.
With teaching reading in the early grades, I taught a great deal of phonics as well. Phonics instruction is a crucial building block in helping a child break the code of reading.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
During my teaching career of 27.5 years, I taught phonics almost every year. The majority of my career was spent teaching 1st grade. Phonics is the foundation of beginning reading. I also taught Reading Recovery for two years.
I taught for 27.5 years in the public school system. The majority of that time was spent teaching Kindergarten and 1st grade. I have also worked at Sylvan Learning Center and have been a private tutor for the past 3 years. I have a passion for teaching reading. I love the expression on a child's face when he/she discovers a love for reading!
