Let's Make This A Great School Year!
I am a certified teacher with over 20 years of experience helping students reach their individual potential. I have a B. A. and an M. A. in Education and have been a special education classroom teacher for grades 2-6, with emphasis on remedial reading, writing, and math.
My strategies help students 'study smarter', not just study harder. With improved study strategies and organizational skills, students become more motivated and successful. Students make significant progress in a short period of time. Students begin with a diagnostic inventory to determine strengths and weaknesses. Conferring with parent and student, together we are able to create a program which helps maximize each student's session.
My areas of expertise are: remedial reading, writing, spelling, math, as well as basic study skills for students in grades 1-6. Utilizing active learning strategies helps make learning fun and students enjoy their sessions. My available hours are after school and early evening.
