Teaches students:
Ages 5 to 14 and special needs

Teaching since:
2011

During my time as a Certified K-6 Teacher in Public Schools, I discovered that I have a true calling in the areas of intervention and tutoring. I am able to find the root of the student's difficulty, and by using various remediation techniques, I can help the child find their way to mastering the troubled math concept. I am also a mother to 3 children ages 10 through 14. Whenever any subject matter deficiency arises, I am the parent that is always able to help them while still keeping my patience and calm. I am a strong believer that all children can be taught, but for them to learn and retain the information, it must be presented in an individualized manner. Each student is unique and has the ability to learn. I love finding the way to get them there.
