Mom of 4 boys (26, 19, 17, and 14), currently a 1st Grade Teacher (AZ Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance Card), specializing in Reading Intervention, and Common Core self-contained curriculum. Day Care Center Director prior to that, and Interventionist under University of Virginia's Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS) program. Experience with ADD/ADHD, IEP's, 504's and meeting accommodations and behavior modifications.
Today's overcrowded classrooms do not meet the needs of our students/children. I know this not only as a classroom teacher, but as a parent advocate for one of my own children, also.
While my degree is in Early Childhood Education, I first set out as an English Literature major. I can tutor all grade levels in English Language Arts, Literature, Essays, Creative, and Technical Writing.
I can also tutor Math up to grade 5. History/Social Studies up to Grade 8. German, up to college level German 101 and 102.
I look forward to meeting you and your child(ren).
