"I am an elementary school teacher and I have 7 years of teaching experience. I am currently a 2nd grade teacher teaching both special Ed and general education. In the past I was a learning specialist working with students in grades K-2. I also taught 1st grade for 4 years and I hold a masters degree in elementary education and special education as well as 2 New York State licenses in childhood and special education. Some of my speciality content areas are phonics and getting struggling readers that confidence they need to get to the next level. I have a passion for math that can excite and get young learners eager about problem solving and math instruction. I have had a tutoring business for the last 5 years tutoring 20 clients over that time period in grades pre-k-7th.

I have been working with children for over 10 years specifically in the areas of individual and team soccer training. I am a nationally licensed soccer trainer and have served many communities across Long Island and queens. My passion as a teacher comes through in my delivery and enthusiasm that I bring to each and every session.

I am well versed in different reading interventions that I have seen work with struggling readers. I have been teaching using Wilson Fundations for 3 years now. A sounds first approach is what I take to get readers ready to sound out words and give them the knowledge to decode just about anything. English is really my strong suit as a teacher and I'm so passionate about making kids excited about being a better reader and writer!

Working in New York State, I have worked under common core for many years now. I am well versed in the standards that students must master at each grade level and using that as a benchmark tool to measure progress.

If you're looking for someone who has a lot of energy and a passion for getting your kids the help they need than please contact me. You will not be disappointed with the service!" less...
