"I am a Master's level teacher with 35 years of teaching experience. I have taught at the K-8 levels, and have tutored students of all ages, including college level and adults. I am now retired and very excited about the chance to work one-to-one with students and help them become confident, successful learners.

I have taught in public and public charter schools, and my most recent experience is that of a Reading Specialist, Literacy Coordinator, and Reading Recovery Teacher. I have conducted teacher trainings and trained reading tutors while in these positions, but my true love is in working directly with students and parents.

Prior to becoming a Reading/Language Arts Specialist, I taught children with Learning Disabilities and other learning differences both at elementary and middle school levels. As a part of my role, I taught reading/spelling/writing strategies, as well as test taking strategies and social studies test prep at the middle school level. I also did pull-out work in which I supported students in all academic areas. In addition, at various times during my teaching career, I have successfully tutored college students and adults in helping them to pass classes and prepare for tests.

I believe I am especially good at motivating students, determining their strengths and need areas, and zeroing in on what they they need to be successful in school and in life. I use on -going informal assessment to guide my teaching and am happy to provide parents/grandparents with suggestions for working with their children.

I would like to branch out into guiding and consulting parents/grandparents in homeschooling situations. I can also serve as a liaison for parents, communicating with the schools, and /or sitting in on IEP meetings and teacher conferences." less...
