Elementary teacher of 31 years tutors reading plus all elementary subjects.
My name is Joni Parks and I have 31 years of experience teaching elementary school. I have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia State University and am still certified to teach grades Pre- K through 5 in all Georgia schools. I am also qualified to teach reading, writing, social studies, and test prep in the 6th grade.I still enjoy working with children and especially love seeing that moment when the "light bulb comes on" and the student gets it! I believe in the importance of teaching critical thinking skills and using concrete examples to promote student learning. I also educate children to use problem solving skills and lead them step- by- step moving forward to find the correct answer. I want to develop a loving relationship with your child! I think that learning should be fun and I will strive to motivate your children to thrive!
