I am a certified elementary school teacher having received my BEd from the University of Toronto, Canada. I have over thirty years of experience at the elementary level and have taught grades k-5. For twenty five years I taught internationally and had the opportunity of working with students from many diverse backgrounds. During this time I also tutored children in English, math, writing, and reading. Helping children to succeed is my greatest desire.
With over thirty years of teaching experience in the elementary grades, I am very qualified to teach phonics! Phonics is one of the primary building blocks of reading and without an understanding between the relationship between letter sounds reading cannot occur. What a joy it has been to watch children in the early grades learn to read, though for some the extra one on one tutoring is essential in order to give some children that added boost of confidence. I have a repertoire of activities that I have used and that have been successful to help children succeed in reading.
