My love of teaching and education comes from my love of children. I have been teaching in some capacity since 1996. Upon graduating from college, I taught second and third grades in New York City. In 2001, I had my first child and moved to Charlotte. I continued to tutor privately for 2 years at which point I had my second child. After she was about a year, I continued to tutor elementary students in organizational/study skills, reading and math and time management skills.
In 2007, I shadowed two little boys on the Autism spectrum. I helped them interact socially in their classroom environment. Gross motor planning as well as fine motor activities were areas in which I assisted as well. I began to teach in a small, local school for students with special needs. I worked on academics with these children in small groups and one-on-one. In addition, we worked on appropriate behaviors in school and outside of school.
In 2012, I went back to work in a regular education setting with fourth grade students. At this school, I taught all subjects and helped to plan for the academics in the school day.
I am a patient, hard working, teacher. It is my goal to see your child flourish and grasp concepts that might be difficult to him/her. I love to see it "click" for a child. There is no greater reward than to see a child proud and happy of their accomplishments. It would be my honor to assist your child in reaching his/her goals!
I am flexible with my schedule, but would prefer to meet with your child within the school day, 8 am - 3 pm.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping your child reach his/her goals in succeeding in school and beyond! My love of teaching and education comes from my love of children.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a BS in applied learning and development. I have an MS in reading and literacy. I taught second grade for three years and third grade for two years in New York City. I taught fourth grade in Charlotte. Most recently, I worked with special needs students ages 8-11 one on one and in small groups.
When I was a second grade teacher, I used the D'Nelian method of teaching handwriting. This was effective as it was a smooth transition into cursive. When I worked with children who had special needs, I used "Handwriting Without Tears." This was a good curriculum for these students as it worked more on the child's motor planning when forming a letter.
