I have always loved to teach. From the days of being a big sister to a brother 10 years my junior, to landing my first teaching job as a sophomore in college, it has always been my calling. My college degree was a double major in Elem. and Spec. Ed. (K-8) so I could have the flexibility of working with regular education and special education students. I taught in schools in supplemental classrooms with moderate special needs, and helped students learn to read, write and do math. I earned a Master's degree from Harvard to acquire skills in analysis/ synthesis and critical thinking as well as teach Reading and Language to students K-12. Raising two children of my own, I worked in a private clinic and later went on to start my own private tutoring practice, where I teach reading and writing (gr. K-12), and math (gr. K-8). I love what I do and I've had a high success rate, shown in improved grades and improved reading levels, better comprehension, and better retention.
