I am an early childhood teacher with 7+ years teaching experience. I worked for years in an inclusion classroom. I have taught general education students and students with multiple learning and physical disabilities. It is my belief that each student has a unique style of learning - once that style is identified the learning process is made easier. I work with students to asses their learning style and proceed from there. I believe in using a variety of hands-on materials. Each lesson is tailored made for my students.

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.

I hold a license as a Reading Specialist and Early Childhood teacher. Phonics is one part of the reading process. I have taught phonics to my students for 7 years. I believe in using hands on activities to improve Phonemic Awareness.
As an Early Childhood teacher my role was that of a coach and model. I would model appropriate study skills every day to help the students move towards becoming independent learners. In order to become an experienced teacher I had to become an experienced student first- passing many certification exams etc. .
