"I grew up in Ann Arbor Michigan and graduated from The University of Michigan with an education degree. I also received my Masters Degree in Education from The University of Missouri. While teaching, I continued to attend classes and got 30 more credits. I taught in Ann Arbor, Michigan for 2 years, both 6th and 3rd grades. After getting married and moving to St. Louis, Missouri, I began teaching in the Clayton School District where I taught Kindergarten for one year and 3rd grade for 8 years.

After having two children, we moved back to Ann Arbor where I started my own tutor business. I have been tutoring for 25 years and typically will tutor a couple kids each day. I specialize in phonetic reading and elementary /pre-algebra math.

I graduated from the University of Michigan in the education program with a minor in math. I have been trained by Marilyn Burns and I have been helping students gain a concrete understanding of concepts through math manipulatives.

I tutor with phonetic based programs, Project Read and FAST, and have been tutoring writing skills by teaching grammar, clustering, and the understanding of the paragraph form.

I am trained in the two phonetic based programs, Project Read and FAST. I have used Project Read for over 25 years and have incorporated the FAST reading program into my teaching for over 8 years. This helps children grasp phonetic reading at a faster pace.

I love helping children learn, particularly kids who have fallen behind their grade level and have lost some confidence. My techniques work to instill confidence and bring the joy back to learning." less...
