I am a graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Masters in Teaching. I am currently a 3rd grade teacher and have experience with grades pre-k through 6th. I recently worked for the public schools in a variety of grades assisting with lessons and supporting struggling students. I love to come up with creative ways to help children grow in reading and math!
I have experience with ages 3 and up. For the younger ages, some areas we would work on are concept of word, letter recognition and letter sounds. For older students we would focus on accuracy and fluency while reading. I will provide a customized word sorts for students and help them get on reading level for their grade. I like to meet in the local library or another public place. I am very motivated and enthusiastic about helping children and encouraging them until they know that they can do it.
