Retired elementary teacher with 25 years of classroom teaching experience offering academic tutoring in K-5 elementary core subjects.

Methodology

I love teaching all subjects! I use a variety of teaching methods to meet the need of each student. Creating a supportive environment through positive reinforcement and building a student's self-esteem is as important to me as teaching the core subject matter. Keeping a connection between myself and the parent/guardian is also a key component to a child's success. Most of all, I love spending time with my students!

Background

I have been teaching for 25 years in the Catholic school setting, with a brief stint in a public school setting. I am recently retired as of this academic year, and I miss working with students! I taught at the 3rd and 4th grade levels in a self-contained classroom, teaching all of the core subjects. I have taught in San Francisco and in Raleigh, NC. I hold a current North Carolina Teaching License at the Highly Qualified level.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $30/h

Details

I will charge a $5.00 travel fee if I am driving more than 10 miles. I know that life can be crazy, but I will need a 24 hour notice if you plan to cancel a session.
