Hi, I am an educator who resides on the east coast. I have taught in public schools for over 10 years. I have taught Pre-K, First, and Second Grade. I am certified in both Early Childhood Education and Reading, and I have served the children of my state for the past seven years as a Reading Specialist for students identified as being at risk of reading/academic failure. This means that I have received extensive training by my states' Reading First division to provide extensive intervention for our most vulnerable readers. In addition to this training, I hold a MEd in Curriculum and Instruction: Literacy-Reading, Writing, and Oral Language Development; National Boards Certification in Literacy: K-8, and I am a credentialed Reading Recovery Teacher.
Currently, I am a Reading Interventionist and I serve students in grades k-8 in small flexible groups. These students meet with me in small groups for 40 minutes a day. I monitor their progress on a regular basis, and when they have met set criteria, I release them back to the regular classroom teacher. There is nothing better for me than to witness first hand, the changes over time in these students, as they begin to move from word callers and reluctant, unsuccessful readers and students, to students who are actively thinking and interacting while reading...and this new way of processing beautifully spills over into all learning!
I am passionate about helping students to develop stronger processing before, during, and after reading, and it should begin respectively in the primary grades. Allow me to assist you and your child in building a stronger processing system for reading, writing, and oral language. It is really KEY to confidence and success as students move throughout the grades. Hi, I am an educator who resides on the east coast. I have taught in public schools for over 10 years.

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.
I have trained extensively with SC Reading First as an interventionist and Reading Recovery Teacher to work with students who are at-risk of academic failure. Many of these students have needs that are not addressed appropriately in the classroom but can be individualized for success when addressed in small groups or one-on-one.
I am certified and highly qualified as an Early Childhood Specialist to teach PK-3 students in the core subject areas. I also highly qualified to teach Reading to grades K-8 and I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy K-8.
I have been an interventionist for the past 10 years. I have focused on the critical components of reading as highlighted by the National Reading Panel during the No Child Left Behind Era. The critical components include phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
