About Buffy

Hello! I have been teaching for twelve years and worked as a nanny for many years before teaching elementary school. I enjoy helping children learn new information and love to see a child's smile when they realize that they are reading. All children can be successful with a teacher that is willing to adapt to the child's needs. If your child needs to have phonics, reading and writing skills or math help, please contact me. It is better to help children as soon as possible so they can be confident and successful.

I am currently teaching Kindergarten at The Episcopal Academy and I've been teaching for more than ten years and used various phonics programs. I graduated from Saint Joseph's University with B.S. In Elementary Education. I have worked with children from ages four to twelve years of age. I also help students with handwriting. I have experience with a program called Handwriting Without a Tears. I m currently using a program called Fundations which is a part of the Wilson program.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I received my BS in Ekementary Education from St. Joseph's University in 2004. I am currently teaching Kindergarten at The Episcopal Academy, however. I've taught PreK - 3rd grade.

Elementary Math

I received my BS in Elementary Education from St. Joseph's University in 2004. I've taught grades PreK - 3. I used a variety of Math programs such as, Math In Focus, Investigations and Everyday Math. There have been times when I had to use different strategies to help different students in my classroom.

Handwriting

I graduated from Saint Joseph's University with B.S. In Elementary Education. I have worked with children from fours years old to ten years of age with a program called, Handwriting Without a Tears. I m currently using a program called, Fundations.

Phonics

I have been teaching Kindergarten for more than ten years and used various phonics programs. I have used two different Open Court programs, Fundations and used my own when none were available. I have also tutored children in phonics over the summer months.

Reading

I received my BS in Elementary Education from St. Joseph's University. I am currently using the Fundations reading program which us geared to help children with reading disabilities. I've also been trained in Reading/Writing Workshop by Teacher's College/Lucy Calkins.

Study Skills

I started teaching in 2004 and I also teach summer school. When a teacher over the summer could not teach their class, I would be the substitute teacher. I taught a week long course just on study skills. I also give parents tips to help their children stay organized and how long a child should study per a given subject.

Very patient!

Highly recommend. She is patient with our daughter, and has the ability to keep her focus. I’ve never seen my daughter pay attention that long. I’m grateful because I’m always distracted by work, and my youngest who is a toddler. Buffy has been able to give her the attention and help she needs.
