I have been a teacher for 18 years. I've taught grades K-8. Teaching students to read has become my passion. I love teaching all ages but have found Middle School students to be a population that needs me the most.
I enjoy coming up with creative ways to convince them that reading can be fun. There is no "one size fits all" approach to helping a child overcome reading deficits but by providing them with tools (reading strategies) for their tool box they will learn to become self sufficient readers.

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.
17 years of teaching experience grades k-8. I've taught remedial math and reading in grades 3-8 as a Title I teacher. I've taught 5th and 6th grade ELA and Social Studies. As a Middle School Reading specialist my students have a wide variety of needs including organizational and study skills which I also address in order to assist them in being successful in the content area classes.
I am a certified Reading Specialist and currently teach reading in a middle school. My students read and write everyday. They are held to the current Common Core standards for literacy. I model writing for my students so that they can demonstrate their ability to comprehend what they have read.
