I am a graduate of the University Pennsylvania with a Masters degree through which I obtained my Reading Specialist Certification. I have also added many additional credits, courses and workshops to increase my skills. After teaching 5th and 6th grades I became a school Reading Specialist working in several schools to direct their reading programs. During that time I worked with children from kindergarten to grade 6, implemented teacher workshops to improve reading skills, and introduced school-wide projects to make literacy fun and exciting for students. The joy of life-long learning is a desire for my self and my students to help all achieve personal goals and become productive citizens.
I have tutored students and adults during my entire career. I have enjoyed working with ESL students from many parts of the world and have formed many new friendships in the process.
Working with students to help them enjoy learning and give support as needed is my sincerest desire.
