About Adrienne

I am a Pennsylvania-certified teacher available for after-school and/or Saturday tutoring in reading, English, and social studies. I have a bachelor's degree in English; a master's degree in education; and am certified as a K-12 reading specialist, in English 7-12, and in social studies 7-12. I have eight years classroom experience, and I am currently employed as a full-time reading specialist working with children in grades K-5. The work that I do now is exclusively pull-out reading remediation, either individually or in small groups, and I collect and analyze reading data on each child periodically in order to target instruction to their individual needs and monitor their growth in critical literacy skills.

I am available evenings and Saturdays for tutoring at a place convenient for you, either in your home or at some public place (i.e., library) close to your home. My complete resume, references, all required educator clearances, and my PA teaching certificate are available for your perusal. My tutoring methods, regardless of the subject, are tailored to suit you and your child's needs, and instruction is always individualized.

My evening and Saturday schedule is flexible, and I will make every effort to accommodate your scheduling needs.

Thank you for your interest in my services, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
