Texas Certified, Experienced Teacher with Masters Degree Offers Web-Cam and In-Home Reading/Writing Tutoring Services for All Ages (Collin County Area)

I have 13 years of experience as a certified regular education and gifted teacher and tutor of students of all ages. I have a masters degree in Reading and Literacy along with a gifted certification.

I believe all students can learn and they learn in different ways, therefore instruction should be differentiated to suit the needs of each individual student. Student interest plays a large role and to be effective in helping my students, I focus on this to motivate students to learn and to enjoy learning.

I teach various techniques that have been proven to be extremely effective in increasing reading, comprehension and writing skills. Students can use these techniques throughout their lives to become lifelong learners.

Please add an additional $5.00 for travel to and from tutoring location.
