Class experience

US Grade Kindergarten - 12
  • Each lesson will be individually constructed to fit learner need. All learners will continue to develop missing skills in reading, writing and spelling during each lesson. Phonics and sight words will be emphasized first using slides, songs and body movement, age dependent, of course! Spelling will be the middle portion of each lesson and will focus on learning to spell any word using patterns, not rote memorization. Writing will be individually instructed at the child's level with the final objective being crafting a three-paragraph essay which not only includes the standard expectations of organization, spelling, grammar, capitalization and syntax; but which also is masterfully crafted using a variety of sentence forms, good transitions and excellent readability. These three skills take time to develop, but with my individualized lessons, students will make weekly progress toward their goals.
I am a K-12 certified special education teacher.  I understand the effort that students put toward learning goals, and I applaud all incremental growth.  I am accustomed to developing engaging, individualized lessons that fill gaps in student learning for a successful outcome. 
I also hold a TEFL certificate which qualifies me to teach students whose primary language is not English.
