WELCOME TO YOUR READING TUTOR, LLC
I am a certified Reading Interventionist, teacher, wife, and mom to two beautiful children living in Vermont. I grew up here and chose to return here to raise my family. We love being outside!
I am a passionate educator and am always looking for creative ways to make learning fun. While I loved being a classroom teacher, I decided I wanted more time with my young children. As they got older, I realized I missed teaching and have fallen in love with tutoring online. It gives me the best of both worlds! I can make authentic connections with students and help them grow as learners, and also be the mom I want to be for my children.
I went to college at Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont. I graduated with an associates degree in Early Childhood Education and a bachelors in Elementary Education. I taught in elementary classrooms for 7 years, always with a focus and passion for Reading and Writing. I began teaching online in the summer of 2017 and haven't looked back. I enjoy working 1-1 with my students. It allows me to personalize learning and watch them grow in their skills and confidence.
