...Throughout all three years, I tutored first and second grade students after school, three days a week, in reading and math. I prepared activities for students to do at home and provided resources for parents to help their child. I absolutely love teaching reading and writing, which is why I decided to become a certified reading specialist.

...A good reading program addresses phonics, phonemic awareness, comprehension, reading fluency, and high frequency words. These are the skills possessed by good readers. When students lack the very basic skills needed for reading comprehension, reading becomes an unpleasant task.

...During those stints, I taught units on famous literature such as "Catcher in the Rye," "Of Mice and Men," and "Merchant of Venice." I am also a professional playwright, having written over 30 published plays. I retired from a 27-year career with IBM. During that time, I wrote numerous business briefs and many pieces of marketing literature.

...When I was in high school, my highest score on the ACT was the science section. Later, I went on to earn my BS in natural science, and I worked in science for many years, and recently completed my M.Ed. with a concentration in science. I guess you could say science has always been my favorite subject.

...I really enjoy working one on one with students because I feel students can get the individualized help they need. I received my master's in differentiation, so I can design lessons to help any type of learner. I received my undergraduate degree in English and Secondary Education.
