Massachusetts certified as a Teacher of Moderate Disabilities PreK-8, I have worked with preschool and elementary children for over ten years. Since I am passionate about teaching early reading skills, I acquired training in many intensive reading interventions including Wilson and LIPS. Using a variety of strategies and programs to support reading progress, my students have achieved above average growth.

In addition to working with elementary students to close reading gaps, I have employed a variety of strategies to help students grasp elementary math concepts. I use concrete and real life applications to allow students to connect with mathematical concepts and provide them with the support strategies they need to perform mathematical problem solving.

In my school based positions I have provided instruction to small groups and individual students both during school hours and during after school tutoring. At my home based tutoring office, I have a variety of materials for instruction as well as access to computer based programs. I am also available to travel to your home to provide needed services.

My teacher certification program and experience trained me to assess and provided targeted instruction in all elementary subject areas. Learning math requires progressive understanding of concepts. My knowledge of mathematical development allows me to access the prerequisite skills student need to future their understanding of mathematical concepts. I have supported student success in math by providing them with process strategies and computation aids like Touchmath.

I am trained in a host of reading intervention programs addressing word reading, passage fluency and comprehension skills. I understand that there is an intricate relationship between the five components of reading, (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension) and provide instruction that addresses each area to the individual extent needed. Some of the programs I have employed include Wilson, LIPS, Lexia, Fontas &
