I have been teaching elementary age students since 2006. My educational background is a BA in Psychology and a Masters in Elementary Education. I am certified in Elementary Education and Special Education in the state of New York. I have been a classroom teacher and worked with students in small groups and one to one in a traditional school. My additional experience includes three years of working with a family developing and implementing a home schooling curriculum in all subject areas, teaching English to students in Asia, along with teaching small group and 1:1 classes on Outschool since 2020.
My passion is helping students become more motivated learners through improving their self-confidence with tailored instruction and encouragement to reach their potential. My areas of expertise are reading, writing, math and executive functioning. I have extensive experience with accelerated reading growth and with assessing and remediating skills gaps in reading, writing and mathematics. I love to help students find a topic that inspires them and create a project that helps them use their talents to express what they have learned.
I have worked with students on the autism spectrum, with speech and language disabilities, learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, attention deficits, along with neurotypical students. I can honestly say that I have basically seen it all and have truly loved every minute of it.
I’m looking forward to learning more about your child so we can help them reach their true potential.
