Bio

With 20 years of experience working as an early childhood educator, I understand the skills your child needs to succeed at the very beginning of their educational career. I have extensive experience in teaching phonics and phonemic awareness, early literacy skills, mathematical skills such as number sense, numeral recognition and early math skills, as well as vocabulary development, and scientific inquiry.

With 20 years of experience working as an early childhood educator, I understand the skills your child needs to succeed at the very beginning of their educational career. I have extensive experience in teaching phonics and phonemic awareness, early literacy skills, mathematical skills such as number sense, numeral recognition and early math skills, as well as vocabulary development, and scientific inquiry.

I have two children of my own, one who is developmentally delayed, so I know firsthand the struggles that children can experience as they enter school. My goal as a an early childhood teacher and tutor has always been to encourage every child to succeed, and to give children confidence in their abilities so that they are willing to try new things and broaden their educational horizons. I am excited to meet your child at his or her skill level and help your child move through any challenges he or she may be experiencing with patience and kindness.

I have loved math since I was a very little girl and even majored in math in college while I was getting certified to teach elementary school. I understand the foundation of teaching mathematics through games and play to help children build number sense, numeral recognition, spatial understanding, and mathematical knowledge.

Young children are naturally curious. This curiosity is key in becoming a young scientist. I can teach all aspects of science from physical and Earth science to space science as well as the scientific inquiry process.

As children's vocabulary grows, so does their excitement for learning and communicating about the world around them. Having taught Early childhood, as well as English language learners, in the early childhood setting, I understand the importance of building vocabulary for both educational success and ease of communication with others.

Having taught pre-kindergarten as well as kindergarten in the public school setting, I have used many different programs to teach children phonics and letter sound relationships. Once

Soccer

I have played soccer since I was eight years old, playing in recreational leagues, high school and college, as well as in an adult league. I coached nine years at the high school level and continue to coach at the recreational level. I feel that soccer has helped me become the confident adult that I am, and I love the opportunity to mentor young players that coaching had afforded me.
