Following my graduation from the University of Maryland, I was a substitute teacher in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. In addition, I have worked for a professional tutoring service in math and reading in the Massachusetts school system. As part of my continuing education I tutored history at an inner city school. I have maintained a current Massachusetts teaching certification.
I have experience in all elementary subjects and strive to make learning fun. My goal is to help my students acquire a lifelong love of learning. I have made effective use of games and incentives as a motivational tool.

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.
I have public school and home school experience teaching all subjects related to elementary education.
I have worked for a professional tutoring service in the Massachusetts public school system teaching math and reading on the elementary level. My experience as a homeschooler has given me a unique opportunity to try out many different kinds of curricula selecting the one most suited to my student's learning style..
As a veteran homeschooler I have experience teaching with many different types of phonics curricula. I have used Sing, Spell, Read and Write, a multisensory phonics reading program. In addition, I have also used the more traditional curricula such as Abeka and Bob Jones. My goal would be to assess the student's specific needs and learning style and then decide on the proper learning materials.
