About Margaret

As a school psychologist with over 20 years experience, I have worked with teachers to help students from ages 2-22 learn to their full potential. I have worked with students experiencing all types of learning difficulties, and have volunteered as a reading coach (Reading Recovery) on the elementary level. I have worked in local schools that required background checks.

I enjoy the one-on-one time with students. It allows me to develop a good relationship with them, as well as the opportunity to adapt the curriculum to their needs and interests. I strongly believe that learning should be fun; and with your support, I will do my best to motivate your child.

Depending on the number of sessions desired each week, I will only work with two or three students at a time. I generally tutor at the Augusta County Library in Fishersville, but am willing to consider other arrangements if needed. Parents need to arrange transportation to and from sessions in a timely manner. Babysitting services are NOT included. I require a 24=hour notice for cancellations, and services will be discontinued after two missed appointments.

My goals are as follows: to help your child learn to the best of his or her ability, develop and foster a love of learning and enhance your child's self-esteem.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Study Skills

I earned an Education Specialist degree, and have taught several workshops to teachers on how to teach study skills. Additionally, I have tutored several students individually on this topic.
