B.S. Elem Ed, Math & Reading Specialist

Experience:

Over 15 years experience in class & online

 

My teaching style is fun, flexible, and based on a multi-sensory approach. First, I assess each child to find out where their gaps are. After this assessment, I speak with the parents to discuss the results. Next, I come up with a personalized plan that will quickly close the gap and then meet with your child twice weekly. Every 3 months, I reassess the child to find out what changes need to be made with instruction to continue to close the gap.
