Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have taught in the Lower School (grades N-5) for 31 years. I hold a BS Degree in Early Childhood Education from Wheelock College in Boston, MA, a M.Ed. from Western New England College in Springfield, and a MA in Curriculum and Instruction grades K-6.

I have a deep understanding of the skills children need for school readiness including sensory integration, handwriting, phonics, and a multi sensory approach to school work for success.

Handwriting

I have been trained in Handwriting Without Tears all the way through Cursive. Additionally, I was the Handwriting Coordinator for several years at The Wheeler School in Providence. In 2010, I wrote and published the first picture book ever written on letter formation. I have tutored children in handwriting for 14 years.
