Experienced Instructor with a demonstrated history of working with the Board of Education "No Child Left Behind" program. Strong education experience with a Bachelor's degree focused in Education.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is mostly geared towards primary students from kindergarden to the 3rd grade. My goal is to meet the student where they are at academically and gear my teaching style to their way of learning. Everyone learns differently and the earlier poor and weak learning habits are found and corrected, the better chance for a productive educational future. Repetition and review challenges the student to fully achieve and understand the course work.

Background

I have 20 plus years working with primary aged children in achieving high reading and math scores. I have worked with the Board of Education in the "No Child Left Behind" program. I also taught on a one-on-one level in my private practice as well. The best achievement was to see a 5 year old child no longer become frustrated but begin to start reading. Another achievement was getting a letter or telephone call from the parent stating that their child was not left back but was student of the month with honors.
