"I am a recently retired educator with 35 years of experience working at all educational levels. My most recent position was as a high school principal. Prior to becoming an administrator, I worked at the elementary, early childhood, and middle school levels teaching special needs children. I also worked in general education classrooms as a co-teacher delivering curriculum in line with the common core. My specialty is educating children who have been challenged by traditional classroom settings. I am a compassionate individual with a love of learning and I bring this love to the classroom and the tutoring session. Children are not all the same and therefore do not benefit from a "one size fits all" approach to learning. I am very good at understanding the individual needs of all types of children and look forward to working with new students.

My tutoring subjects include reading, language arts and math at the elementary level through grade 5. I am also skilled at teaching grades 6-8 in reading, language arts and math through pre-algebra. I typically teach through a discovery method, providing multiple opportunities for students to learn the concepts and practice them. I am familiar with the current initiatives which the state of Connecticut has introduced during the past few years. This includes teaching for the Common Core and also test preparation for the Smarter Balanced Assessment.

I prefer to tutor in the student's home or in a neutral location such as the public library. If I am in the home, there would need to be an adult present in the home during the tutoring session. My cancellation policy is 24 hours notice required. With 24 hours notice, a session would be able to be re-scheduled. Specifics can be worked out once we agree upon a time, frequency, and location.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please contact me for additional information and to arrange a time to meet." less...
