I taught for over 30 years, along with homeschooling my 2 sons from K2 through 12th grade. My teaching experience includes teaching Kindergarten, 1st through 6th grade, 7th, and 8th-grade math, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Speech, 7th through 12th grade English, and 3 1/2 years as the head of a small college Education Department. I trained in teaching phonics and used this approach in the classroom, as well as with my sons. Both of my sons were reading fluently by the age of 4. I tutor reading, English, history, and elementary science privately. I have been tutoring since 2010. I have worked with students from many divergent backgrounds and cultures, including Mexico, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
