I am currently a district literacy coach for a public K-12 school district with a background as an elementary and middle school Reading Specialist. I have an Education Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction, a Master's in Education with specialization in Reading and Literacy, and a Bachelor's in English. I am a certified teacher and I tutor all age ranges from early elementary through high school and college. I can offer tutoring in all the following areas: test preparation, homework help, diagnostic reading assessments, reading skills & strategy, comprehension, grammar and spelling, writing skills, standardized test prep, study skills and much more.
I can provide references if necessary. I will develop a plan that works for both you and I to get the most out of the time we meet. Our sessions can focus on specific school work or just specific skills in general where I bring all the materials. While I live in Gloucester county, I work in Burlington county and am willing to meet within reasonable distances between Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester counties in NJ. I'm also open to meeting online.
My rates are flexible. I consider not only the hour that we meet each session, but also the planning and preparation time involved. I have lots of materials and books that I use that are age and strategy appropriate.

Very nice tutor

My daughter really likes Savannah. She knows how to connect with middle schoolers and provided a lot of encouragement. These are the key factors for my daughter to want to work with a tutor like her. This is the first time my daughter worked with a tutor. I am very glad she is having positive experiences.
