Bio

Hi, I'm Casey! I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education, with a specialization in literacy. I have been a elementary school teacher for 10 years and tutored several students in reading, writing, and math.

Hi, I'm Casey! I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education, with a specialization in literacy. I have been a elementary school teacher for 10 years and tutored several students in reading, writing, and math.

I believe reading is the key to a child's academic success. Reading allows children to develop their own thoughts, effectively communicate with others, and access new information and ideas. There are five pillars of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Often times, students have difficulty with reading because they are lacking skills in one or more of these foundational areas.

I want children to love to read! I never want reading to feel like a chore, so I typically use games, puzzles, and hands-on activities to teach phonics and reading. I have experience teaching and tutoring students in grades PreK-5th and would be happy to meet with you to discuss the areas in which your child needs more support. Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

I incorporate multiple tools and manipulatives to promote stronger number sense. I encourage students to find patterns in math and think about the uses of math in everyday tasks.

I use a blend of many different curriculums to teach reading. have been trained in Words Their Way, Wilson Fundations, Literacy by Design, and Lucy Calkins Reading Workshop.

Phonics and spelling go hand in hand. I use spelling rules to teach reading and reading rules to teach spelling. Students' understanding of how letter sounds interact within words will increase both their reading and spelling accuracy.

I also have experience with teaching handwriting. I use lessons from Handwriting Without Tears to help students maintain an appropriate pencil grip, form upper and lower letters correctly, and use proper spacing between words.
