I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's Degree in Secondary Science Education-Biology. I am certified in the state of Florida. The first lesson will consist of diagnostics so that I can better tailor my teaching to your child. For my reading students I assist with phonics and comprehension. I use high interest text selections to ensure that the child will actually enjoy what they are reading, in addition to improving their skills. Students who require math instruction, I like to revisit prerequisites. I find that mistakes are made in the lower levels of math, which makes learning math at the higher levels more difficult. If children need science instruction, I can help with re-teaching the material and clarifying any confusing or complicated concepts to ensure the material is clear and easily understood. My methods for language arts and history are similar to science.
