About Penney

I have been a teacher since 1974. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Sociology. I hold a Master's Degree in Reading Language Arts and I am a certified Reading Specialist. In addition I have an ABD in Reading from The University of Pennsylvania. I have taught elementary school, middle school, high school, college and graduate school. In addition to teaching at all of those levels, I have also tutored at all of those levels. I currently am the Title I Director for an elementary school. I teach Reading and Study Skills and Interpersonal Communication at Bay College. I am also the English Language Arts teacher for an online 7-12 school.

I always individualize the instruction to the specific needs and learning styles of the student. I look forward to the chance to work with you or your child and together develop a learning plan that is appropriate.

If you are interested in online tutoring I am a certified online instructor.

Thank you for your consideration.
