Bio

I have been teaching for the past 12 years all different grades ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. I have a background in reading and the past 6 years I have served as a reading specialist. I have experience working with students with dyslexia and students who struggle with writing. I have always tutored during my 12 years of teaching.

I have been teaching for the past 12 years all different grades ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. I have a background in reading and the past 6 years I have served as a reading specialist. I have experience working with students with dyslexia and students who struggle with writing. I have always tutored during my 12 years of teaching.

I like the personal help that tutoring allows, so that students can get exactly what they need in the way that is most helpful to them. I'm full of ideas and resources to help you find what works best for you!

I have years of experience teaching in an elementary school. I'm very familiar with the Common Core as well as teachers' expectations for work. I am currently working in an elementary building.

I have taken some PRAXIS prep courses, so I know what I personally found helpful. I have taken and passed on the first time all elementary education Praxis tests, reading specialist Praxis tests and administrator Praxis tests. I currently hold my principal papers.

Being a certified reading specialist and working with high school students closely has afforded me the opportunity to sharpen my own critical thinking skills when it comes to comprehension and my ability to break down writing skills to assist students.

I am used to using Orton-Gillingham approaches as well as research-based phonics programs to best help students build upon phonics skills appropriately to accurately decode words and build their fluency.

Please feel free to reach out and ask any questions you may have for me!
