Bio

Hello. I am an elementary teacher in my local public school district. Since I started working in the school district, I have worked in self-contained special education classrooms, inclusion classrooms, resource room and general education classrooms. I have experience with the special needs population, particularly the autistic spectrum and ADHD students.

Hello. I am an elementary teacher in my local public school district. Since I started working in the school district, I have worked in self-contained special education classrooms, inclusion classrooms, resource room and general education classrooms. I have experience with the special needs population, particularly the autistic spectrum and ADHD students.

My own child is on the autistic spectrum so I have first hand knowledge of this type of child. I am familiar with the IEP, CPSE and CSE procedures.

I am currently tutoring several students throughout the Hudson Valley. My primary focus is reading (phonics and comprehension) and writing skills. This includes vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure and spelling.

I teach through a multi-sensory approach since everyone learns differently. I offer both in home and online tutoring for students. If you are interested in online tutoring, there are many benefits to it. With the busy lives of my families today, they find online tutoring very convenient. Scheduling sessions is the biggest benefit. Some families have many children that have to be in different places at the same time. With online tutoring, it can be done anywhere.

Before the first lesson, I offer a free reading assessment (which is a $75.00 value). Yes. I said free. After the assessment, I sit down with you and discuss the results. You know your child better than anyone else. Together we decide on a learning plan that would best fit your child. At that point, we begin sessions working on what we decided the learning concepts should be.

There is a money back guarantee for the first session. If you don't feel that you got what you paid for, you will not be charged for the session and you are under no obligation to continue tutoring services. If however, you decide to move forward with sessions, I will give you the information that you need regarding procedures for payment, policies and cancellations. I would love the opportunity to work with your child so they will feel successful in school and not be as frustrated. Please contact me so we can discuss your child's needs. Thanks.
