My education includes a Bachelors of Arts (majoring in political science and French) and a Master’s Degree in education with high honors. I was accepted in Who's Who in American Colleges/Universities and Phi Beta Kappa National Academic Honorary Society. My teaching credentials are certifications in English, Elementary Education, Special Education and Dyslexia. I've taught for 22 years in Reading, English, and Dyslexia in both general and special education. Before I began teaching, I traveled all over the world, actually attending the Sorbonne in Paris, France for a summer. Being exposed to different culture and languages as well as observing teaching methods in other countries has greatly added to the development of my love of cultural and learning uniqueness.

I absolutely love catering my teaching to individual student needs. I've taught in Elementary, Jr. and Sr. High settings, and receive great pleasure in seeing my students improve in test taking, academic skills, and self-esteem. I've done extensive tutoring in all levels of English, Reading and Writing, and love working 1 on 1! I made myself available every day after school to tutor any student who wanted extra help. Many were not even my students, but heard how much my own students loved their tutoring experience with me. I tutored in writing labs as well as both state and teacher exam preparation. Or just when they wanted further help with their assignments!

I would love for parents or students to call me for questions or further information. I prefer on-line instruction, but would be willing to consider tutoring in my home. I want my tutorial students to love interacting with me and thoroughly enjoy the lessons. As one of my tutoring students said, "I love learning with you because it's fun!"

Dyslexia

I've taught dyslexia class for several years. We used a strategy called R.I.P. that our district required and trained us to teach. I was appointed School-wide dyslexia contact teacher and used power point presentations to educate teachers and adults with the traits and expectations of dyslexia students. I wrote annual educational plans for all special ed. students with dyslexia, and assessed students who demonstrated signs of dyslexia for further referral to formal testing by diagnosticians.
