I also work with students to improve their study skills in all the K - 8 subject areas including Science and Social Studies. I have been teaching Math for more than 25 years. I also teach Reading and Writing. Before teaching only Math, I taught Language Arts(Reading, Writing), and Math. I work with students using a variety of problem solving strategies. I also incorporate technology in my instruction. Manipulatives are used to enhance learning. I have tutored students in the past including my very own children who have graduated from Ivy League universities. I was the recipient of "Governor's Teachers Recognition Award". I work with students in a caring manner to help them reach their full potential in the subject areas.

Grammar

Grammar

Grammar is very important in speaking and writing. I tend to correct grammar on programs and during conversations with my students. I also explain to my students and children the importance of speaking and writing correctly.

Elementary (K-6th)

Helping elementary students gain a love for learning is essential for present and future success. I have been working with students on this level for many years in the Public School System as an elementary teacher. I enjoy working with children to uncover their skills and expertise in the elementary subjects. I have a solid knowledge of the concepts in these subjects. I provide an atmosphere that promotes confidence and allow them to believe in what they can achieve. I have high expectations for my students and work with them to achieve their goals

Phonics

I am a certified elementary (k-6)teacher with over 20 years' experience in the public school system. In my early years of teaching, I taught Kindergarten to 2nd grade skills. Phonics was a major part of my teaching. I find that I continue to teach these skills even in the upper grades when I encounter students with Reading difficulties. I am also the first teacher for my children and several of my nieces and nephews. I have seen tremendous growth in their Reading. There are many students whom I deal with on a daily basis who need Phonics reinforcement. In my earlier years of teaching and even presently, I taught students how to analyze the words by breaking words apart in syllables, sounding out each syllable and then putting the syllables together. When students are having difficulties with a word, my first instinct is never to tell them the word, but to allow them to use the strategies they were taught to decipher the word. When reading, I noticed that some students tend to freeze when they come upon a new word or a word that has many syllables. I help students to approach these words with confidence, realizing that their decoding skills is the key to unlocking what they may consider to be difficult. Students that I work with in the lower grades or those who come to me in the upper grades with reading fluency challenges, I continue to work with them in decoding words and thus helping them to overcome their fears of Reading. My students become comfortable reading out in a group, reading to answer comprehension questions, and just reading for fun.
