She is experienced in working with a wide range of curricula and enjoys developing personalized, interdisciplinary lessons in order to engage her students.
Judy says, “I know this upcoming school year is challenging, and I’d like to help your children be successful with their learning. My philosophy of teaching includes an emphasis on explicit instruction along with physical body breaks, games, rich literature, and a variety of materials. Recently retired from full time teaching, I now enjoy my tutoring along with swimming, cooking, and reading. I also completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training this summer and so I try to practice as much as possible.”
