About Heather

I am a teacher with 15 years' experience in the elementary schools, to include all grades PK-5th. My specialty is Reading and Language Arts, but I have 8 years experience teaching all core subjects. I have three children on my own that travel with me as I work, but they are self-occupied.

I have taught children with reading and other learning difficulties as well as those who have English as their second language. 10 years experience has been spent in the elementary testing grades (3rd-5th).

I have a good grasp of the English Language, a native speaker who has spend the last ten years of my carrier teaching ESL. I have a total of 15 years experience in Language Arts, to include Reading, Writing, Spelling, and Grammar. These being the keys by which many other subjects are learned, must be a strength and deliberately taught.

I am certified to teach Pk-6th grade. I have experience with every grade level in elementary and all core subjects. Teaching children to have confidence as readers is my strength. My track record is consistent with 2 years of growth in one year's time. Through confident reading any subject is better learned.

Teaching children to read is of the highest priority to me. I have spent 5 years in the early grades (PK-1st) teaching students phonics for the first time, and the other 10 years were spent with children in grades 3rd-5th who have learning difficulties or language barriers to overcome.

I have an open schedule. Contact me to make an appointment. I'd be glad to help you.

Approved subjects

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.
