All of Gabrielle’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Gabrielle’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ADD/ADHD

I have a lot of experience teaching ADD/ADHD students. Several of my family members have ADD/ADHD and I am very familiar with the needs of these types of students. I have been a tutor for over ten years and have helped many students who struggle with ADD/ADHD issues. I use a specialized program that helps these students to focus and I use several different techniques that help those with ADD/ADHD.

Autism

I have been a professional tutor for ten years and have been working with children on the autism spectrum for 7 years. In the last two years, I have begun to work with these children in regards to their academic skills. I use two highly successful programs to help these students with oral language (expressive and receptive vocabulary), listening comprehension and reading comprehension. As a result of these programs, the students have also improved their writing and grammar skills.

Dyslexia

I use several highly successful programs to improve my students' reading and spelling skills. These programs teach phonemic awareness, reading, reading comprehension, spelling, grammar and writing. These programs work, even if the school has been unable to teach the child how to read using conventional methods. These programs were designed with dyslexics in mind, so they can learn these essential skills in the way that works for them.

I am familiar with the needs of dyslexic children. I also use many multi-sensory activities, such as use of manipulatives and other hands-on methods with my dyslexic students because this is the best way for them to learn.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 11 years of experience working with Pre-K through 6th grade children. I have tutored in all subjects, including homework help. I have helped many children improve their academic skills. I begin with a pre-assessment test so that I can determine which academic program the student needs to go through. I can also communicate regularly via e-mail with the student's teacher in order to ensure that we are focusing on the right concepts.

I have helped Pre-K through 6th grade students improve in the areas of reading, spelling, writing, reading comprehension, vocabulary, study skills, test preparation, history, science and math.

ESL/ESOL

I have helped ESL/ESOL students learn English for over nine years. I worked for the Pomona Unified School District teaching English to ESL/ESOL students and I have also tutored many ESL/ESOL students one-on-one. We work on English speaking, grammar, vocabulary, reading, reading comprehension, spelling, writing and phonics. I have worked with several students who had very limited English skills and have helped them to be able to converse, read and write at a proficient level. I use successful reading, writing and phonics programs to help improve English skills as well as practice workbooks and hands-on activities.

Phonics

I have over 7 years of experience teaching phonics to children who are in Pre-K through 6th grade. Much of my experience is in teaching Pre-K students how to read. I use phonics workbooks, flashcards, charts and other materials to help students improve their phonics skills. I also stress the importance of reading to young children in order to improve their skills. Depending on the age and skill level of the child, I will read to them and with them to help them gain confidence.

One of my students started tutoring with me when he was 4. In no time at all, he was reading short words. Today, he is one of the top readers in his kindergarten class. One of his recent reading tests had a goal of 8 points. He scored 60 points on that test.

Whether your child is a new reader or a student who is struggling with phonics, I can help to improve their skills.

Special Needs

In my 10 years of tutoring, I have worked with several students who have special needs. One of the main special needs that I encounter is speech delays. Many of my speech delayed students have a language disorder. They have a limited vocabulary and limited language comprehension (understanding what people are saying). I use a specialized program to help speech delayed children to improve their expressive and receptive vocabulary. This program also improves language comprehension and helps the student use correct grammar when speaking. I am also very familiar with the special needs of children with autism and Aspergers. I have used this same language comprehension program to help autistic children increase their expressive and receptive vocabulary. I have used a different program with Aspergers students to improve their reading comprehension skills.

Study Skills

Since students who struggle with study skills often struggle in multiple subject areas, I use a general comprehension program to help students to first understand what they are studying. This program also works on recall skills, vocabulary-building, note-taking, and written expression.

I was trained to teach this program by Lindamood Bell Learning Processes, the leaders in the field of remedial instruction. I have attended their conferences and workshops in order to learn how to better help students struggling with study skills. I have been a tutor for 12 years and have seen great success using this program with a variety of students.

As we progress through the program, I teach the student to summarize and synthesize large amounts of information that is presented to them in their textbook. We start by reading short passages and progress to chapters in their textbooks.

I have found this particular program to be very beneficial for those students who seem to have difficulty remembering dates, facts and details from passages or chapters. The program teaches the student how to understand and absorb information from any subject. Most importantly, the student is more likely to remember the information when it's time to take their test.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
