My son says, "Thank you Alice, you're a really good tutor!"
Alice has done a great job assessing our child's reading level and working with him to improve his skills. She is patient with our child and helpful to us with detailed instructions for the take home practice work.
We will be recommending her to any that ask, and also give her 5 stars!
It is a pleasure to work with such a motivated student and his supportive family. It's a team effort!
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.
I have earned an M.A. in Education and taught in the Public School System for 23 years. I also hold a Clear Specialist Instruction Credential in Reading from the California CTC authorizing me to teach Reading and Language Arts.
As a reading teacher, I teach phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, fluency, and comprehension. Spelling is developmental and you must first be able to hear the sounds of the language to become proficient in spelling. It is my belief that if you have or develop phonological awareness, then you can become a good speller.
