I was inspired to offer my services as a learning specialist when I left my position as a public school 6th grade teacher in 2014. I had put my skills and passion to work in the public school classroom for several years, teaching various grade levels and subject areas. Although I loved working with my students in a classroom space, I found the best and most productive learning occurred in small groups and during one on one time. I also knew that students facing learning disabilities and those who struggled in a specific area most benefited from the individual attention and care. I wanted to reach more of these children and help them to regain their confidence.
Tutoring and teaching small classes are my passion as they allow me to tailor learning to the individual and provide children with opportunities to build confidence. I believe children should be guided to recognize their individual strengths instead of comparing themselves to others, and use their interests, skills, and knowledge to set learning goals, overcome challenges, and build independence. I am certified as Massachusetts Elementary teacher and have completed the Brain Gym 101 course offered by Breakthroughs International, which allows me to do Brain Integration Therapy.
Please feel free to contact me to learn more about how I can help empower your child to become a lifelong learner through guided mentoring.
