...I will be pleased to help you develop a passion, as I have, for the English language arts such as, writing and reading. I have always been excited about writing.

...I enjoy talking to a student about what they have read, finding a new book for them to discover and helping students connect their everyday life to what they have learned in school. I have taught different levels of elementary and middle school. This has made me aware of the struggles students face when reading, writing and learning the foundations of math.

...I specialize in improving conversation skills and increasing vocabulary. I also teach public speaking at the college level and this is where I have developed my skills to teach writing to be persuasive, informative, and entertaining. Structure is important for all writing so I also use outlines in my teaching to help students focus their ideas and to present them in the best way possible.

The program is multi-sensory which assists the students in retaining the information in long term memory. I am a certified teacher in special education.
