After being a stay at home mom for 15 years, I went back to school to obtain my teaching licensure and my Reading Endorsement for grades K-12 at Ashland University. During my time at Ashland, I was required to complete several hours of tutoring for both high school and elementary students and found that I love helping students on a one on one basis. I have been tutoring for 18 months. I believe in teaching to the individual student. I have developed a hybrid approach to teaching which incorporates different aspects of various styles and gives me the flexibility to tailor a personal style that is right for each student and their coursework.
My favorite subject to tutor is reading. Reading was difficult for me as a student, especially during high school and college. I feel that so much time is spent teaching students to learn to read and never enough time teaching them to read to learn. I believe that if a student can be successfully in reading,including comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary, then they can be successful in every other aspect of life!
I am available for tutoring at the Elementary level in the subjects of English, reading, writing, grammar, phonics, and mathematics.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading suspenseful mysteries, swimming, running, and even still compete in Irish Step Dancing.
