With over 10 years of experience in elementary schools, and over 5 years of experience tutoring, I have a commitment to success and unfaltering high expectations of all learners under my tutelage. I have a history of raising attainment and achievement. In every year that I have taught, all children have performed above national standards and age-related expectations. More specifically, I specialize in raising attainment in standardized test scores. I believe in teaching highly engaging and practical lessons, and strive for excellence through consistent high quality, precision teaching. I achieve success by building trust in my students through mutual respect and empathy, and most importantly, having a bit of fun while learning together!
As a certified special education teacher and literacy specialist, I have spent the past six years teaching children with autism, ranging in ages from 4 to 11. I specialize in developing and adapting curriculum to meet the individual needs of each student and to make learning accessible for all children. I believe that all students can learn and thrive, and my aim is to determine how to best accomplish this goal. I consider each student’s interests and strengths and use this information to make learning enjoyable and motivating.
