Education has forever been my passion. I am a certified K-5 teacher and currently teach kindergarten. I have taught preschool, 3rd and 4th grade, and tutored 1st and 2nd grade students. Currently, I am pursuing my Master's degree in early childhood delays. I have experience working with students who have ADHD, down syndrome, and other special needs.

I am very passionate about meeting children where they are at and helping them reach their fullest potential. I am highly qualified to assess children, and with my years of experience have acquired a variety of resources and strategies to teach and motivate them. I believe learning should be fun and engaging. I have researched Growth Mindset and believe this has the greatest impact on a child's success.

In the past 5 years I have taken specialized math trainings that align specifically with Common Core standards. My students have maintained outstanding math test scores due to my consistent teaching of "number sense" and hands on practical approach to math skills.

Throughout my career I have received several different trainings in teaching reading comprehension, decoding, blending, and phonemic awareness. I believe all students are readers and aim to help students find a love and desire to read.

My every day work is embedded in the Common Core standards. Throughout my career I have become an expert in the standards through the K-5 grade levels. I am therefore very knowledgeable of them, their relevance, why they are important, and how to help students achieve them.

My experience ranges from 3 years olds to 12 year olds. I am a highly qualified K-5th grade teacher in any subject area. My work experience has been mostly math and ELA, however my undergraduate minors are social studies and science. I tend to blend these two subjects into my math and reading instruction to make learning more engaging and relatable to my students.

Orton Gillingham, GVSU Sound Phonics, and Visual Phonics are all programs I am extremely familiar with and trained in. I believe a balanced approach is key and being knowledgeable and trained in several programs is essential to finding what works best for every child. What works for one, doesn't work for all.

A positive attitude paired with the knowledge and experience described above is sure to provide the best tutoring experience for you. I look forward to working with you and helping you find your passion for learning.
