Although English (reading and writing) are my passions, I love to teach math and study skills as well. I have a great rapport with my students, and we have a great time learning to think "outside the box" so that everyone can achieve...

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I teach middle school English which requies that 25% of the grading scale be dedicated to oral speaking and listening. As a result, I have a multitude of public speaking lessons, and some creative ways to have students become more comfortable with speaking in small and large groups. Further, I taught a public speaking class at Wilmington College and received positive feedback regarding the class structure and assessment process.

I have a master's in elementary education and a K-6 PA certification which enables me to teach all subjects in the K-6 general education curriculum. My focus is the core standards which are adopted by many of the area public schools.
Phonics,

Phonics

I am certified in PA as a K-6 teacher which includes the area of phonics as a segment of reading and writing. Specifically, I am prepared to use letter and sound recognition, blends and word endings to create a focus for curriculum. I use a variety of traditional methods (books/workbooks) but I also use manipulatives and technology to help support the overall exposure to the phonics theory. I have a master's degree in elementary education and have taught most grades including middle school.

Study Skills

Over the past ten years, I have worked with numerous students in the area of study skills, and have been able to effectively offer concrete steps to improving this skill. Along with preparing for tests, I use study skills as an opportunity to teach good organizational habits which help promote good study habits as well as the timely completion of written tasks. I have tutored students in this area for over five years, and I work daily as a Middle School teacher to offer similar strategies to my own students.
