I'm a veteran teacher with 21 years of classroom experience and an accomplished author. I have experience teaching students at both the elementary and middle school levels. My strength lies in the area of Reading Language Arts, and I have had success motivating and reaching struggling readers and writers. I most recently tutored a group of 4th grade students who were reading 1 year below grade level. By the end of a 6 week program utilizing explicit instruction, the students showed significant improvement not only in their reading rate but also in their comprehension.
I have a strong desire and passion to teach. Regardless of the areas of difficulty, I work cooperatively with the students to build upon strengths and improve weaknesses. I take the time to build rapport with the students so that they feel comfortable taking risks and putting their best foot forward. All students can learn and are able to achieve success. Each success is celebrated and students are continually encouraged to strive for success regardless of the challenge presented.
I'm a published author and specialize in the areas of reading and writing. My goal is to help students to enjoy reading, share their thoughts through literary discussion, and to learn how to write creatively.

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 20 years of classroom teaching experience. I've taught all subjects in grades 3, 4, and 5 at the elementary level. This past year, I worked with a group of 4th graders before school to improve their reading fluency rate, comprehension, and writing skills. At the end of a 6 week time period, they all made significant gains and marked improvement in writing.
