...I have a B.A. in Elementary Education, a minor in Spanish, and an M.S. in Literacy. The majority of my teaching has been in 4th grade, but I have experience tutoring students of all grade levels and ages. My greatest interest and expertise is in math, reading, and writing.

...I believe this is only part of what makes me a good tutor. My patience, creativity, and my relational attitude help me to engage with students, helping them to feel more comfortable to tackle problems on their own. I try to ask questions that will get students to think and understand concepts on their own, but will reexplain ideas and concepts in different ways if the material is confusing.

...My responsibility was to introduce reading programs focusing on phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and phonemic awareness. With the introduction of the common core all students regardless of grade level will have to meet the goals introduced in the core. I have used Read Naturally, Recipe for Reading for comprehension, Jolly Phonics, and Explode The Code for phonemic development.

My approach to teaching is a student-centered one, always keeping in mind a student's short-term aims and long-term goals in their studies. I enjoy teaching because every day with my students is a different experience, which keeps me looking forward to each lesson. I will learn to constantly adjust to suit your needs and levels and also to progress from what you already know.
