About Erika

I am a certified general and special education teacher who has been tutoring elementary math, reading, and study skills for the past 2 years. My main goal is to make learning fun and meaningful for the students. I have my Master's degree in Elementary Education and Mild/Moderate Disabilities.

Reading is something I struggled with as an elementary student, which gives me a unique perspective. I am able to to an array of diagnostic testing to try to pin point where the struggle is coming from. Because reading instruction has shifted to evidence based reading skills, my tutoring is heavily based in that area.

I studied the common core standards during my time at graduate school. I am very familiar with the skills common core based learning is trying to enhance.

I have worked in various grades k-6 for the past 5 years in both general ed and and special ed capacities. I have also been tutoring for the past two years privately.

Phonics skills are fundamental in learning how to read. Letter sound correspondence as well as learning how to blend sounds and letter combinations are tricky for some students and need to be practiced daily. The more we read, the better we become. Direct instruction outside of school will increase your student's reading skills.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in learning more about how I can help your student!
