I completed my Bachelor's degree through Ottawa University and my Master's degree through University of Phoenix. I have earned a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Education-Curriculum and Instruction. I have been teaching for twelve years (elementary and special education) and am currently working as an Educational Diagnostician for the second year. I tutor elementary math, reading and writing, special education, study skills, and organization skills. My favorite subject to tutor is reading because the ability to read allows individuals to learn and have many new experiences through stories they read.
I believe that every individual can learn and it is the educator's responsibility to find the appropriate method for every student. Learning should be relevant to real life and connected to a student's prior knowledge. It should also be fun--even if it is work!
Outside of school, I enjoy time with my family watching movies and playing games. I also enjoy reading books and scrapbooking!
