About Edith

I have been retired for about 1 1/2 years after teaching kindergarten in the School District of Philadelphia for 25 years. Prior to my wonderful years in this assignment, I taught preschool and kindergarten at a private preschool for about 6 years. My love for this age group even went back to my college days when I worked summers as a classroom assistant in Head Start.

Since retiring, I have spent time volunteering and enjoying life. I want to tutor so that I can continue doing what I have loved for so long...helping young minds develop and prepare for life-long learning.

I have always loved, loved, loved to read, speak and write!

I had the pleasure of introducing my kindergarten and preschool students to the formation of letters.

In my teaching career, I got to experience the joy of watching my students begin to form words on their journey to becoming readers. Phonics is the key for this process. Regardless of what type of reading program is used in a curriculum, phonics develops a child's ability to go from letter recognition to letter/sound connection and finally to blend sounds into words.

I look forward to hearing from my future tutorees to find out how I can be supportive to enable success on the educational path.
