I have my Master's in Reading and Curriculum. I also have a B.S. in Elementary Education. I have taught and tutored for 11 years. I enjoy helping students in the areas they have difficulty with. First, I like to find out what is the best way the student learns. Then, I find out exactly what the student needs and can benefit from the most.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary education for ten years and have gotten my Master's degree in Reading and Curriculum from Grand Canyon University. I have a strong back ground in teaching reading, phonics, comprehension, vocabulary and spelling. Grammar and Language Arts is a strong area of mine also. My students excel in their reading skills. Trying different methods in instructing students is helpful to keep students motivated. Having fun while your learning is the key to promoting life long learning and curiosity about our world.

English

I have taught English for three years as an ELD teacher and also have taken many extra courses in this subject.

Phonics

I have taught reading for 10 years. I also have my master's in reading. One of the five key components in reading is phonics. This is a vital part in being able to be a good reader. I have tutored students every day and also taught my students in the classroom the basics of phonics. The students that need help in this area get support with extra practice in the sounds that they are have problems with.
