I am a retired teacher. I taught for over 29 years. My focus is reading tutoring K-5 and math K-3. Currently, I am TEA certified Elementary Education 1-5, a Legacy. Master Reading Teacher K-! 2 and ESL K-12. It is very important to me to get to know each client. I listen to their needs and expectations. I want to lean about their activities, interests and hobbies. Whenever possible, I like to connect with the classroom teacher. My goal in tutoring students is to make sure student's have a strong solid foundation, at the beginning, so that they can achieve academic success in the future.
