illume Academic Support - Affordable tutoring by exceptional educators
Sara J. Werner, M.Ed

Hi! For 7 years, I worked as a classroom teacher, interventionist and teacher coach/evaluator in the public school system of New Orleans. I have experience with all grade levels PreK-8, and specialize in reading, math and writing remediation, enrichment and working with struggling learners. 

I absolutely love teaching, and have worked with students and families from all walks of life including academically gifted, at-risk, learning disabled, students with Autism, Emotional Disturbance. I have received special training in reading assessment and intervention, and working with children with ADHD and Learning Disabilities. I can even review current IEPs/evaluations/service plans to make sure your child is receiving everything he/she deserves and can create behavior plans for home and school!

To tell you a bit more:

-I am trained and certified in the new Common Core Standards!!
-I have a Masters Degree in Education, GPA 3.94
-I am a Highly Qualified Special Education teacher
-I am a Highly Qualified Elementary Teacher, Grades PreK-5
-I mentored, coached and evaluated teachers for six years- so I know what great teaching looks like!
-I received honors/awards in grad school including honors for my thesis work
-In the top 5% of all teachers who took the national licensing exam (Praxis)
