Bio

My absolute favorite part of teaching and tutoring is the "light bulb moment" - when a student has been struggling with a concept or a skill and it just clicks! There have been many over the years and I appreciate every, single one. When tutoring, it's especially wonderful because most of the time, my tutoring students have had limited success in the area where I'm helping them, and to see them grow and learn something that they thought they couldn't is just amazing.

My absolute favorite part of teaching and tutoring is the "light bulb moment" - when a student has been struggling with a concept or a skill and it just clicks! There have been many over the years and I appreciate every, single one. When tutoring, it's especially wonderful because most of the time, my tutoring students have had limited success in the area where I'm helping them, and to see them grow and learn something that they thought they couldn't is just amazing.

I have been teaching in one capacity or another for the past 20+ years. I am currently tutoring several students in the area, two for math and one for reading. Over the years, I have taught students from first grade up through high school, as well as adults looking to improve their literacy skills and job prospects. Among my previous tutoring students are multiple college graduates and a manager of a local salon. I like to keep in touch with them, because each and every one of them matter very much to me. it's fun to see what that little first grader can do as a grown up!

I have taught in private schools and public schools, since earning my Masters of Education in Elementary education. Over the years, I have sought multiple professional development opportunities in various subjects. I love to keep learning and trying new techniques to help my students achieve success. I have been told I have a personality that puts kids at ease, which helps them be open to learning and making mistakes on the way to mastery.

Having taught 4th and 5th grade for many years in different states, I have taught various concepts to many hundreds of students. Because 4th graders in Pennsylvania take the Science PSSAs, I have also spent time reviewing other grade level science standards and concepts, so I have a strong basic knowledge of elementary science requirements.

English Language Arts is my favorite topic to teach. I love books and I have strong background in children's and young adult literature from my minor in college, as well as from my years of teaching experience. My goal every year that I teach in a classroom is to have at least one student (or his/her parent) tell me that they started the year not liking to read, and finished the year asking for books because they want to read more. I have met this goal each year by sharing excellent, engaging, fun books and using them to teach things like vocabulary development, writing, text analysis, and as many other forms of literacy as I can.

If you are a student (or a parent of a student) who could benefit from some extra support in any elementary subject, as well as writing at any level, and math up through pre-algebra, please let me know. I would be happy to help you reach your academic goals. In addition to tutoring, I am glad to work with classroom teachers to ensure that we're all on the same page towards helping students to succeed. Contact me so we can discuss how I can help!

Having worked in the public school system since 2009, I have a strong background in teaching using Pennsylvania's Core Standards, which are based on the Common Core. I have taught Math to multiple students in the way that it is taught in schools now, unlike the way adults have learned it. I can help your child and you learn the "new" way that math is done in schools and lessen that frustration at homework time.

I have my Masters of Education in Elementary education, taught private school, public school and private tutoring students for 20+ years. I have done a great deal of individualization of games, lessons and practice for hundreds of students in that time. In working with tutoring students, I keep in contact with their classroom teachers to ensure that what I'm doing with the student is helping them in the classroom, as well.

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary math (including Common Core, recently) for the past 20+ years. In that time, I have had the opportunity to find various methods that unlocked the math puzzle for my students, who all learn differently from one another.

In addition to teaching upper elementary school (4th and 5th grade) in private and public schools, and tutoring numerous students in my home, I also am a learning coach for my son, who is a cyber school student. I have worked with the different platforms on which his lessons are delivered, as well as identified his needs as a cyber student and helped him to gain independence in his studies.
