I currently teach all grades Kindergarten through 8th as a Resource teacher. I am passionate about helping the neediest students succeed. I believe that connectedness is the most important contributing factor to school success, and I am very good at building positive relationships with students and families. I deliver highly engaging lessons that relate to trends and topics my students are excited about. Most importantly, I know how to provide personalized learning opportunities to truly allow each student to learn at their own pace.

I have been tutoring since 2012 in all subjects K-high school. My strengths are reading phonics, reading comprehension, English Literature and Composition, and math through Algebra 1.

I love tutoring elementary or middle school math because I love filling in the gaps of knowledge and correcting the misconceptions that students have developed. Sometimes I find students have memorized a rule for solving a problem, but they don't know why the rule works and they don't know how to actually do the math to understand the problem. I use a concrete manipulatives and drawing pictorial approach to provide a foundation for the later abstract mathematical thinking.

I have always been a strong reader and writer, I was an English Literature major in college, and my master's is in Literacy Education and teaching reading. As far as reading phonics and decoding, I use a highly structured, multi-sensory approach in teaching reading. I am trained in Wilson Reading System which is based on the Orton Gillingham approach and helps kids grades 2-12 I personally have used Wilson with grades 2-8. I am also trained in and have tutored students using Lexia, Rode to the Code, Road to Reading, and Reading Recovery as other phonics based reading interventions. As far as reading comprehension, I am trained in using the Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) with the younger elementary grades and Comprehension Toolkit for the upper elementary and middle school students.

I have tutored High School students in American Literature, English Composition, and Creative Writing Courses as well as in writing their college application essays. I ask open ended questions that encourage students to think critically about their work from a different perspective.

I love working with all students. I use a highly structured, yet also highly positive approach because my first and foremost goal is motivation. Most kids who are struggling know that they are struggling and as a result they have lost their love of learning. My goal is to show each student I work with that whatever they are struggling with can be fun and exciting once they find a way to connect to the material. I would love to motivate your child to succeed and develop a lifelong love of learning.
