About Gwen

Hi,
I am an experienced educator with experience teaching in the public school system. I am an enthusiastic, caring educator who believes that all children can learn and thrive in a learning environment that is stimulating, comforting and appropriate to children’s abilities. I possess a calm attitude and superb understanding of children. I have a passion for learning and can create a exciting and positive learning environment for your students.
I use a combination of hands on materials along with technology. I can teach your child to enjoy learning and understanding without stress. I am very motivated and confident that I can help your child with basic study skills along with challenging your gifted students. I am able to teach children to read and help students that are having difficulty reading. Using phonics and decoding words, blending sounds will help children become better readers. Knowing what a child is reading is a very important skill in reading. Asking questions teaching children to look for key words and phases are some of the strategies I use to improve reading and vocabulary.
I have a lot of patience and will be able to teach your child how to read or improve their reading and vocabulary.
I use strategies and simple tricks for attacking phonics and reading.
