Currently I am a public school special education teacher in an inclusion classroom. Over the last 19 years I've taught math and language arts in kindergarten through 8th grade. Working with students with disabilities is my specialty, but I teach all students. Reading is my passion and love, but I am very knowledgeable and capable to tutor in math as well.
Teaching a child to read is an amazing thing. Seeing the excitement, especially when a child has had that "ah ha!" moment, and realizes that they can read. It is my belief that all children can read, some children just don't read well, working with me, your child will improve their reading as long as they try their best.
Through my middle school experience I've worked with students struggling with reading comprehension and vocabulary development. Teaching students the meanings of Greek and Latin roots as well as context clues will help them not only improve their vocabulary, but help them in their vocabulary development in the next school year.
Half of my teaching career has been in the elementary school. I have instructed in the 3rd and 4th grade general education classes as an inclusion teacher, but I also have been a resource room teacher as well. I am well versed in the Common Core.
Teaching kids to read is my passion. I have been trained in Orton-Gillingham/Phonics First and SRA as well has having general phonics and fluency training. My students this year have all increased their reading level by at least one grade level in three marking periods.
If you want your child to read, and your child wants to learn to read, I will help them improve their reading skills. A child who struggles with math may need additional practice, or someone who can explain the process in a multitude of ways. I am that person.

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.
