I am a certified and experienced teacher. I have taught for 25 years. I have a K-8th certification in Math and a minor in English-Speech. I have experience with 5th grade and 4th grade classrooms. I went on to become certified as a Reading Specialist and served students in preschool through 6th grade. I then went on to become a learning disabilities teacher and have taught these students and other special education students in 7th through 12th grade. I then went on to become certified in working with dyslexic students. I have taught reading, English, math, science and have supported social studies, health, American history, modern history and drafting. I also supported students who went to the Skill Center at the local college with the book part of their trades which included auto mechanics, auto body, food service, etc. You will find that I can teach most subjects.

I have a major in Math and can teach many areas of math. I can teach prealgebra, algebra 1, linear algebra, logic and probability along with general math, math for specific trades and real life math.

Any student who contacts me may learn more about me and I would love to learn about you.
