Elementary (K-6th)

For approximately one year I taught reading comprehension and writing to two different groups of grammar school aged children at a local learning center in San Jose, California.

The classes were one hour in duration and we read articles tailored to their interests, did exercises and discussed what we read. They also wrote essays and answered questions. They received immediate feedback and seemed to thrive under my tutelage.

I also privately tutored two children - one in the first grade and another heading into middle school. Again, we worked on reading comprehension and writing.

English

English is a passion of mine. Being able to communicate effectively, comprehend what one reads and write clearly in one's own voice provides a degree of confidence that makes all the difference in one's experience at school and in life.

Whatever the grade level, there are effective tools available for increasing one's skill level. In addition to focusing in on the strengths and weaknesses of each student I tutor, I also utilize exercises that help students discover their own critical thinking capacities, knowing that in order to write well, we also need to know how to think.

Reading

One's ability to read is usually a determining factor in whether or not a student likes to read. In the very early stages of learning how to read, students sometimes get bored by the subject matter they are studying.

The wonderful thing about tutoring is that I am able to tailor the reading material to my students' interests. This almost always immediately changes the relationship a student has to reading; and then, we can work on issues of comprehension and vocabulary by practicing reading out loud and completing assignments that support comprehension and vocabulary building.

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.
