About Gail

Primary teacher, newly retired here in Asheville, is seeking opportunities to help primary students succeed in reading and/or mathematics. I have taught K-2 grades and understand what skills are involved in learning to read as well as learning early mathematics. Because my teaching experience is recent, I am very familiar with the current requirements for reaching current reading and mathematics goals. I can analyze what a student needs to move forward.

My method is using a positive approach. I know how to find and use games to teach and help children practice their skills. I love working with children and find that they usually respond to setting goals and earning stickers to show progress. Keeping sessions positive and encouraging is important.

I am currently certified to teach primary grades in North Carolina. I taught kindergarten for many years; recently retired.

I have used a phonetic-based approach to teach reading to primary students.

Please contact me to set up tutoring times. My availability is very flexible. I look forward to helping primary aged students to succeed.
