I have been a 1st Grade teacher in the Phoenix area for five years. I have a passion for education and would love to increase my impact even more. This coming school year I'll be staying home with my son who was born in April of 2018. With my time, I'd love to help YOUR child master K-2 reading skills as I feel this is my area of expertise. I'm passionate about phonemic awareness and phonics to teach decoding/reading. These are concrete skills and spelling patterns that can be learned in an order that progresses by difficulty. I use fun game-like activities with engaging texts. Before becoming a classroom teacher, I gained experience in teaching/tutoring through 5yrs as a water safety instructor, 3yrs as a swim coach, 2yrs as a dive coach, 1yr as a lifeguard instructor, and 1. 5yrs as a Biology/Genetics tutor at ASU.
I'd be happy to communicate via phone/text. I'd suggest we meet up at a Starbucks to interview and exchange info!
