As a teacher of students grades 1-12 since 2010 I have had many years to develop and design my own teaching style, technique, and philosophy. I believe strongly in meeting students where they are and providing a variety of entry points ford students to access new or confusing material. I especially love working one on one and in small groups to truly focus on the mastery and success of each student.
My strengths in teaching are reading, writing, and vocabulary across subject areas such as science, English, and Social Studies. With license a Massachusetts State License in ESL 5-12 I have learned and used many techniques to help students access and use language clearly and effectively. As an elementary and ESL teacher of many years I have used and developed curriculum to help students understand and use new vocabulary, writing styles, and reading comprehension.
I have many years of teaching experience and am familiar with the Common Core. I am trained in Literacy for All and Guided Reading as well as WIDA practices.
I am eager to begin tutoring and excited to use my many years of experience in the classroom to motivate and push students to levels of success not possible without that personal touch!
