I always knew I wanted to be a teacher! I have a masters of education from Tufts University, and over 25 years of teaching in a wonderful public school district. I am dedicated to helping children learn. Young children need to have learning be meaningful in order to assimilate the new knowledge. Throughout the years, I have refined multiple strategies to help children learn.

I use a variety of hands-on materials to help children stay focused, interested and motivated. I have worked with many children with various disabilities with much success. My two boys, one with Aspergers and one with ADHD have forced me to experience firsthand how important it is to have patience and realistic expectations. All children can learn and many times the way information is presented is key. I would love to work with you and your child to help him reach his full potential.

I am willing to meet at the public library or travel to your home.

ADHD,

ADHD

Both my son and husband have ADHD. I have been working in a public school for over 28 years and every year there is at least one child who displays ADHD characteristics, with or without the official diagnosis. I know they need lots of breaks, learn best by first having an educator identify their best learning modality and then use that modality during instruction. I also was one of the editors of a book about non-drug treatments for ADHD.
