As an educator with 30 years experience, I take seriously the success of each and every student with whom I work. My intent is to make learning as fun as possible, and to use instructional time as creatively and efficiently as possible.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, a Master's Degree as a reading specialist, and a Doctoral Degree in literacy. I have taught kindergarten, second, third, fourth, and sixth grades, and have years of tutoring experience, particularly in the English Language Arts and reading.
I stand ready to help all students successfully reach their goals, and look forward to working with you in making learning fun and enjoyable as well. My favorite subjects to tutor are reading, English, writing, vocabulary, and literacy work of all kinds. I enjoy seeing my student learn to love reading and writing, and to begin feeling more confident and capable.
In my spare time, I like to read and complete DIY craft things for my home. I also enjoy traveling, and being outside to cut grass and garden. I have two very young grandchildren that I enjoy spending time with as well.
