I possess more than 20 years of progressive experience in the educational field. My professional history includes positions such as Student Support Specialist in both K-5 and K-3 elementary schools as well as various classroom and administrative positions. I am a differentiation instructional specialist as well as a dynamic energized educator.

In my current position I tutor children individually and in small groups to help them with difficult subjects. I encourage students to persevere with challenging tasks. I conduct small group and individual classroom activities based on differentiated learning needs.

As the primary Student Support teacher in a K-3 building I am the "go-to" educator when teachers, parents and administrators have questions about Literacy. I have helped hundreds of students learn to read and become grade level readers. I am a certified Reading Recovery trained teacher as well as adept at using Basal Reading programs to meet varying student needs.

I understand the phonics continuum and know how to teach phonics skills to developing readers in a way that makes sense to students.

My more than 20 years in the field of education as well as my vast experience of a successful Student Support Teacher have given me the necessary tools to be a successful tutor. I understand how children learn and am very adept at individualizing teaching to meet the specific needs of learners.

I am looking forward to becoming a part of your child's educational team. I firmly believe that we can work together to help your child grow as a learner. Please contact me to schedule your first lesson.
