Hi! My name is Tina A. I have been working in the education field for 16 years and have had my teaching degree for the past 6 years. I have a Bachelor’s degree in secondary education with a major in social studies and a minor in English. I am currently finishing my Master’s program in special education with an endorsement in autism.
As you can see by my photo, I have a family with three wonderful sons. We enjoy many things together, especially camping every summer in Michigan and various places in Florida for Spring Break. We also enjoy biking, roller blading, and boating. These fun activities keep me happy, young, and enjoying life!
My passion for helping struggling readers comes from my own background of struggling myself as a young child. I understand how frustrating it can be, especially if people aren’t patient with you. I have worked with students long enough to know that they need a person that will help them develop strategies and practice to increase comprehension and fluency in reading.
I have been working with special education students for four years and I absolutely love working with these types of children. I know what it’s like to struggle with academics, I struggled as a young child as well. I have learned many strategies and methods in teaching students academics and practice in applying the strategies necessary to be successful.
If you decide on me, I will decide on you! I will bring whatever it takes to increase your child's ability to learn and be successful in their academics and school as a whole. Hi! My name is Tina A.
