Hello! I have been an elementary school teacher for 26 years. I love helping students learn and encouraging them to achieve their very best. Most of my teaching career has been spent teaching first grade, so I am a pro at helping students advance in their reading skills.
If you are looking for a patient, friendly, encouraging tutor, please consider me for your child or yourself. In addition to teaching first grade, I have also taught Kindergarten, Preschool, Second grade and even adults! I look forward to helping you or your child achieve your academic goals.
Math was always hard for me as a child, so I can relate to students who struggle. My goal is to teach math concretely so that the child understands how the math problem works. I love to use games to teach math as well.
I taught first grade for 15 years, so I am well versed in teaching struggling readers strategies to decode unknown words. I have lots of resources to help a child be successful with reading. I also believe firmly that all students can read. I have been successful using these same strategies to teach adults as well.
Once again, my years as a primary teaching have allowed me to be well versed in teaching phonics to students. As a second grade teacher, I have taught more complex phonics strategies. I have games, puppets and songs to help students learn.
Spelling and writing are so connected to reading and phonics, so my years of experience transfer to this area as well!
If you are looking for a caring, fun tutor, please contact me. I look forward to helping your child be successful! Hello! I have been an elementary school teacher for 26 years.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have taught primary grades for 18 years. In that time, I have been trained to teach a phonics based program called FUNdations through Wilson Reading. This program teaches phonics patterns that help students encode and decode words. During my college training and subsequent professional development, I have also received training in phonics as part of a solid literacy program.
