Having taught in the public schools, I have familiarity with several Math series including Everyday Math. I favor a hands on approach to learning math and put emphasis on real-world application.
Elementary Science,

Elementary Science

In the public schools, I have taught science using Foss Science and other traditional methods. Science can open the world for a student, and many students have a strong interest in science that they aren't able to fully use in school because of time restraints. There are some great ways to make learning in other subjects more interesting for students by integrating science into reading, writing and math.

I'll teach your child how to recognize spelling patterns and how to apply those patterns in his or her everyday writing.

I can also help your student become better organized and to work smarter and not harder at school and at home while doing homework.

As a public school teacher, I have had several students with ADD/ADHD who have had successful school years with me. My goal is to teach and tutor students with any need and to meet them where they are.
