About Valerie

I am a certified teacher with over ten years of experience working in classrooms (K-12), and individual tutoring. In addition to a masters in Teaching Through the Arts, I am grateful for training in special education, learning styles and brain based learning. I am a big believer in understanding how an individual best learns for power strategies. I am also a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate with experience serving children and families. I have found this to complement my role in tutoring with test anxiety and related challenges, and servicing special needs.

My favorite thing about tutoring is the opportunity to build a positive working relationship. Together, we can find what best works for you.

I used to teach Grammar on the elementary and upper grade levels. I especially enjoy coming up with fun ways to remember details (games that incorporate movement, a pretend game show, flash cards, etc.)

Having taught a wide variety of subjects I am a fan of crystalizing our goals for optimum focus. I am familiar with learning standards and happy to tailor lessons to specific needs.

I believe that the information needs to matter to learners before it can stick. That may mean finding an angle that is interesting or relevant to my students. I also believe that learning should be fun whenever possible! My background in theatre comes in handy more than one might think. Most of all, however, I am passionate about helping kids succeed.

I do ask for 24 hours cancellation notice. I am happy to reschedule when possible.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss the possibility of working together!
