Courtney's English Language Arts Tutoring
I have a lot of experience with students of all ages. I've taught phonics to students as young as three. I was a prek teacher for 7 years. Then I worked with high school students and eventually became a middle school language arts teacher to grades 7 and 8. I also am finishing up my masters in reading instruction and interventions.
I love watching students learn. Their AHA moments make it all worth it.
