B.S. in Elementary and Special Education (Elementary and Sped)
Clarion University of Pa. (EdD)
University of Pittsburgh (Master's)
I Taught in D.C.Public Schools for 25 years. I was a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade regular classroom teacher for 21 years. I then became a Mathematics Special Education teacher for the last 4 years in both 4th and 5th grade. For three years out of the 21 years as a regular classroom teacher, I focused on Reading and Writing for grades 3rd, 4th and 5th. My students excelled in both reading and math in the standardized test every year.
My teacher evaluations every year were either outstanding or highly effective. I also tutored students after school every year I worked for D.C. Public Schools. I tutored anywhere from 3-5 students at a time and those students made measurable gains in the subject matters I tutored, which was specifically Math and Reading.

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.
