I am passionate about teaching; my mother said my brother was able to skip kindergarten because I taught him everything I was learning at school! I am a graduate of the University of Connecticut, where I earned a bachelor's degree in English; I also am a 15-year homeschooling "veteran." Most recently, I have worked in a private school teaching grammar, pre-algebra, and physical science. My hobbies include piano, hiking, and singing.

Q & A

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

I make sure they have a solid phonics foundation. Then, I make sure they ask themselves questions about the text, as they are reading. I do a follow-up quiz.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

Give a diagnostic test. Then work hard to fill in the gaps. Be aware of state minimum academic requirements, and work to surpass them.
