Bio

Hello! I am an experienced and certified teacher who has worked with children from kindergarten through 6th grades in both private and public schools. While I can tutor in most all subjects, I have a minor in English, and I especially love Reading! As a teacher, most of my students achieved great scores on standardized tests.

Hello! I am an experienced and certified teacher who has worked with children from kindergarten through 6th grades in both private and public schools. While I can tutor in most all subjects, I have a minor in English, and I especially love Reading! As a teacher, most of my students achieved great scores on standardized tests. I believe in using different methods to reach children with different learning styles. If a child gets "stuck" on a certain skill or concept, I try to think "out of the box" when looking for the best way to help that child succeed. Learning should be challenging, fun, and relevant for students to be motivated! I also like to use my NOOK tablet with learning apps to provide another aspect to lessons. If Wi-Fi is available in the house, I can also bring along my laptop so that students can access learning sites. I'm patient, firm and encouraging, and I really enjoy helping a child reach his or her goal. It truly is a team effort between parent, student, and tutor to achieve academic success!
