I am a certified NH elementary teacher, with a Master of Science in Elementary Education and a Bachelor of Arts in English. I have 14 years of teaching experience on a variety of levels, including kindergarten, high school, and college preparatory.
I have been a tutor for a combined period of ten years at Center For Lifetime Learning, Sylvan Learning, Alpha Academic Services, Aces Tutoring Services, and Pensacola Junior College where I tutored students of all ages in English, reading, and writing.
As a tutor and public and private school educator I believe that every student is unique and needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment, (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) promoting respect for all things and all people.

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 am qualified to tutor in every elementary subject because I am a certified to teach elementary grades K-6 in the state of New Hampshire, have had 15 years experience, and was awarded with a Highly Qualified Teacher certificate from the Manchester, New Hampshire, school district in grades K-6 in 2007.
In addition, I tutored elementary through middle school students while employed with Alpha Academic Services in the Manchester School District from 2010 - 20111 and with elementary through middle school students in the Milton and Somersworth, New Hampshire, school district while employed at Club-Z all in the areas of math, reading, and creative writing. Presently I am a valued daily substitute in the Dover, New Hampshire, school district with a focus on being an integral part of the elementary school system.
