About this tutor

Reading can be easy for some kids and difficult for others. I've decided to work with struggling readers and writers because I want them to feel better about themselves. In many situations, the kids that don't like their reading and language arts classes are the one's that are struggling. They want to do better and ask for help but just not in front of a lot of people. 

By helping kids in a private session, they are able to release their fears and concerns because its just the two of us. Plus, their lessons are customized based on their current reading and writing levels, not their grade levels. This helps them to feel more relaxed. 

Online tutoring is such a great tool to you because I get to interact with students around the world.

    I love that she offers a free reading assessment. The grade level was more in alignment of where I thought my child was.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I offer a free reading assessment and/or consultation. This is a HUGH value because the results provides critical information in creating a successful learning path to help close the reading gap.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've been teaching reading and writing since 2001 with a primary focus in educating students with disabiities and general education students with 504 plans, SST (Student Support Team) and RTI (Response to Interventions). 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My fee is $50 per hour with the recommendation of one-hour per week. The price includes the one-hour session, interactive online technology within the session, activities (online and offline) to enhance the learning, an electronic library with fiction and non fiction books, passages, audio books, magazines, videos and podcasts. Students will have their own student accounts to access all of the technology features. The fee also includes my review of the after session activities. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started working with children with physical disabilities in 1996 at United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) in Roosevelt, NY as a volunteer. Upon the completion of my Bachelors in American Studies degree, I was hired as a full time teacher to the adult population at UCP. Several years later, I moved to Washington, DC and worked with adults with intellectual disabilities at The Art and Drama Therapy Institute. Afterwards, I became an educator at Mamie D. Lee School and eventually earned my Master's in Education at Grand Canyon University. I currently teach students with disabilities in Georgia. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Primarily students with learning disabilities, ADD and ADHD, Autism and struggling students in the general education curriculum. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Traveling is a passion for me and I often incorporate it withing my lessons. You'll be amazed at how much the students love learning about kids their age from around the world. 

I'm also a published author of two books, Escape Discover Rejuvenate, Let Travel Be Your Cure and The Travel Professional All In One Planner. I love reading, writing and being creative. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

The advise I would give is to be enthused about online learning. The technolgy I offer helps my students to be successful in classroom. I love when the students have those Ah-Ha moments and the parents see their grades increase on their progress reports and report cards from school. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Be honest.
