"With 20 years of experience working as an early childhood educator, I understand the skills your child needs to succeed at the very beginning of their educational career. I have extensive experience in teaching phonics and phonemic awareness, early literacy skills, mathematical skills such as number sense, numeral recognition and early math skills, as well as vocabulary development, and scientific inquiry.

I understand the foundation of teaching mathematics through games and play to help children build number sense, numeral recognition, spatial understanding, and mathematical knowledge.
