Online Tutor - UCLA Grad, Math B.S.

I spent a year in South Korea teaching phonics to students in grades 1, 4, and 5 of elementary school.

Patient and caring certified elementary teacher

As an experienced first grade teacher, I have great knowledge of phonics. I understand how to teach children phonemic awareness, concepts of print, and reading comprehension.
