Hello! I am a retired special education teacher with 20 years of classroom experience. I spent most of my career working with elementary and preschool aged children. I loved my job and hated to retire. During that 20 years, I have learned a great deal about different strategies that can be tried in order to teach to each individual's learning style. The most important aspect I have learned is confidence. With each child, you have to build their confidence and earn their respect. I have been successful by having high standards along with these two key components. If a child knows that you love them and believe in them, then they tend to reach higher limits than you ever expect! I love teaching children that they can do!!!

I also taught 4 to 5 years in a tutorial center. I worked mainly with students that were tested and needed to fill in gaps. I also taught students on the Autism Spectrum and slight behavioral problems in this center. I have always had the philosophy that every student deserves the opportunity to excel no matter how difficult the challenges are. It simply takes patience and the ability to look at things from different perspectives. I am so excited to begin working one on one with students again!!!

Math is a subject of building blocks. If a skill is not developed, it compromises the strength of the structure. I am trained to look for those missing skills and various ways to address mastering them.

Reading is a passion. We use reading for so many different things in life. It is essential that we all have these skills to understand our world to the fullest.

With 20 years of experience, I have a rich knowledge base to pull upon to assist each individual I work with to excel. Each individual is different, and finding what works for one does not mean you find what works for all. I do my very best to search for clues for each student that will give me answers as to what approach to take to help them succeed.
