I am a parent of 3 children with a background in Early Childhood and Education. For the last 7 years I have worked at the Bald Head Island Club as the Recreation Manager and Marketing Director. I have experience tutoring students with reading disabilities as well as young students (or early readers) who are reading levels behind where they should be.
I am a patient teacher, eager to learn as much as I can about the students I am tutoring. When I went through school to become a certified teacher in upstate NY, I promised that I would never give up on any student.

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 hold a degree with Health & Human Services with Early Childhood Development along with a NY State Teaching Certification in Elementary Education pre-K-6, Art K-12, and Reading K-12. I tutored a child with dyslexia in Language Arts for 2 years using a phonetic-based curriculum.
