I have my Master's Degree from Adelphi University in Elementary/Special Education. I worked for the New York City Department of Education for 14 years as a special education teacher in a K-5 school in a collaborative setting, a self-contained setting and a resource room setting. I retired in July of 2020 and want to continue helping students succeed in the classroom as an online tutor by giving them the confidence and skills that they need to succeed. I enjoy teaching reading including phonics and reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary and writing. I am a firm proponent of using technology as a tool to assist in reading and writing when necessary to ensure a students success in completing their assignments. In addition, I am also trained to use Fundations and Just Words which are a part of the Wilson Reading Program.
