TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was a Special Education teacher for 13 years. During my years of teaching, I gained experience with extensive reading programs. I left teaching in 2009 and began a tutoring business. I have designed my own lessons to use with students. These lessons are thorough and reinforce the skill or skills being targeted.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love seeing the face of a child when something clicks. I see that a lot more now working one on one with a student/child. The population of students I tutor are in special education or are at risk. My job is closing the gap for these students and instilling confidence. I want my students to "graduate" being fluent readers.
