"Are you looking for a fun, engaging, effective tutoring experience for your child? I am a highly-qualified elementary school teacher with over 20 years of experience, and I would love to work with you and your child!

My specialty is making learning fun for even the most reluctant learner. I infuse my research-based instructional techniques with games, movement, music, and lots of laughter! As a result, my students consistently achieve an average growth score of 70% or more on standardized tests.

My first session with your child is free. I use this time to build rapport by playing games, drawing, and chatting together. It also gives me a chance to learn about your child's interests and incorporate them into our tutoring sessions.

In addition to my 20-year career as an elementary teacher, my experience includes:

- Creator and director of 2 tutoring programs

- Instructional coach at Elmwood Village Charter School

- Teacher trainer in the Teachers College Reading and Writing Program

- Teacher Trainer throughout western New York with the Western New York Writing Project

- Mentor teacher for 12 years

More than anything, I bring to my work my passion for teaching, my love of children, and my desire to make a difference in children's lives. I would love the opportunity to work with you and your child! I have a flexible schedule, and I am happy to arrange times that work with your family. I hope to hear from you soon!" less...
