I am a master teacher with 25 years' experience, a M.ed in Language and Literacy Development, and a BA in English, Psychology and Special Education. I have gone through extensive training to become a F.A.S.T certified reading tutor. My experience in the classroom includes preschool through eighth grade; my experience with tutoring students includes special needs preschool children through high school students preparing for the ACT. I have a particular interest in teaching reading - decoding, fluency and comprehension, but have received additional training (with Steve Tattum) to tutor mathematics through eighth grade. I treat my students respectfully and would expect to be treated in the same manner.

Once I understand a child's learning style, I like to bring developmentally manipulative and concrete materials to our tutoring session, and have found that strategy to be immensely successful. The F.A.S.T. reading system uses a phonetic board to teach decoding; I have used it successfully with pre-K through 6th grade students (though younger children (through 4th grade) seem to enjoy it most.

Knowledgeable and kind

For the first time, my daughter is actually excited to work on math problems. She has a much better understanding in just one lesson.
