About Doris

I have 35 years of teaching experience. I have taught everything from Kindergarten through 12th grade English. My passion is language arts: reading, grammar and writing. I also like to teach beginning arithmetic: addition, subtraction. I use songs, manipulative, art and good old practice in helping students. I love watching children learn.

I am a mother of four and a grandmother of six. I got to teach all four of my children and am now tutoring three of my grandchildren.

My goals for tutoring in math are to children like what the do. Most children do well when they enjoy learning.

Reading is a passion of mine. I read aloud to my students. The expression and building of vocabulary is greatly important to all areas of learning.

I firmly believe that phonics is one of the best building blocks for reading. I use auditory, kinesthetic, and demonstrative methods in teaching phonics.

I would love the opportunity to help you, help your child.
