Bio

Greetings! I have been in education for nearly 15 years - two as a teacher's aide, 12 as a classroom teacher, and am going into my third year as a principal. It's been as educational for me as it has been for the students!

I'm looking to tutor primarily in elementary and middle school grades. I have taught and several different grade levels, and also have school-age children of my own.

Greetings! I have been in education for nearly 15 years - two as a teacher's aide, 12 as a classroom teacher, and am going into my third year as a principal. It's been as educational for me as it has been for the students!

I'm looking to tutor primarily in elementary and middle school grades. I have taught and several different grade levels, and also have school-age children of my own.

Not only do am I well-trained in teaching all aspects of ELA, but I also really love it. Persnickety points of grammar? Bring it on. Identifying literary elements and their purpose? Sounds good to me. Sounding words out at a basic level to assist new readers? Everyone starts somewhere!

I was studying and implementing Common Core requirements even before they were formally adopted because I wanted to be prepared. I can help you make your way through. I promise, it's truly not as scary as some people make it out to be.

You know how some people just have a natural knack for spelling? Well, that's me. I firmly believe it is a combination of reading all the time (the more words your brain sees, the more it makes connections about what "looks right") and a deep and abiding nerdy interest in word origins and language families.

So if it sounds like we may be a good match, please contact me and we can get you started on better understanding the school subjects that make you nervous. Whatever they may be, we can conquer them together!

Common Core

I was a classroom teacher before, during, and after the approval of the Common Core standards. In my school at the time, I was part of the faculty team that helped other teachers become familiar with CC, and how to implement them properly. As a principal now, it is a major part of my job!

Elementary Math

I taught intermediate math for several years, both before and after the implementation of Common Core. Since I struggled with the subject as a child, I had to develop many different techniques to get concepts across to students in the same boat!
