Certified elementary school and special education teacher with a Masters degree in education offers academic assistance to students.

Methodology

My teaching method is to give each child what he/she needs most. Every child learns differently and therefore every teacher must adjust his/her teaching style. I love working hands-on and am always willing to try new things. I believe this helps students learn more effectively and understand that one size does not fit all. To keep engagement high, I make things fun, and offer high-interest learning material and content.

Background

I am a certified elementary school and special education teacher in the state of Massachusetts. I received my Masters Degree in teaching in 2015. I've been teaching fourth grade for 2 years, but have over 6 years experience working in education with children ages 4-14.
