About Velvet

My teaching philosophy is based on the belief that every child can not only learn, but excel and succeed. When students know that you care about them, you will see great growth!
After 10 years of teaching and a masters degree, I have a lot of knowledge and experience. I am able to assess students to see where they are at as learners and what they need to grow. I have a lot of experience working with students one on one to reach their goals.
I have an elementary education degree, specializing in language arts and fine arts. I also have a masters degree in Special Education with a focus on Learning Disabilities. I am a highly effective teacher and I love what I do.

Great First Lesson!

My daughter was a little nervous, but Velvet was great! My daughter relaxed right away and enjoyed her lesson. Velvet was very prepared and had a variety of materials to measure my daughter's reading level.
