Educating students has been my life focus. Even before graduating from college, I began working with preschool and elementary aged children. I have since taught all ages and grades K-12. Nearly all my teaching experiences have been with very small groups and one-on-one, which I find most enjoyable. Being able to customize lessons to meet a student's specific needs is very gratifying and establishing an academic plan to achieve goals is my strength.

My experience has been with teaching students in private school, homeschool, volunteer settings, and public school via Supplemental Educational Services, No Child Left Behind, and Foster Youth Services.

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)

Elementary grades are so academically exciting. Students are learning and changing almost daily! I have worked one-on-one with students in grades K-6th since 1987. Every student is different, but each student has the ability to achieve with loving patience and challenging instruction.

Whether it be math, English, or language arts, your student can benefit from individualized tutoring and instruction interwoven with praise and encouragement. Lesson plans are prepared specifically for the student and can consist of my own curriculum, the student's, or a combination of both.

Phonics

Phonics opens the door to reading. It is exciting for me to teach and reinforce phonics when I see the progress a student makes in the journey of learning to read. I have taught complete phonics programs to students and I have tutored in phonics for students who have not grasped the concepts.
I use games to reinforce phonetic sounds and skills, which increases a student's comprehension. You can expect personalized phonics instruction to meet the need of the student with testing to identify learning gaps. And remember, phonics isn't just for young want-to-be readers, many older students and even adults benefit from phonics instruction!

Prealgebra

Readiness for higher math is an important transition time. Pre-algebra and geometry concepts prepare for this transition time. Often these concepts can cause students to have difficulty, but they are able to overcome difficulties with step-by-step instruction, visuals, and manipulatives. All lessons are individualized to the student & their level of understanding. Homework can be included in tutoring sessions.

Reading

Reading is necessary for students to understand directions and comprehend facts. In addition, reading is fun and enjoyable! Often a reader who struggles feels discouraged and thinks they have low intelligence. Improving reading skills commonly improves the student's self image.

Improving reading will also improve the student's spelling, grammar, and vocabulary. It opens doors to understanding that will affect their entire life.

I approach reading by reviewing phonics rules and use. Language Arts is interwoven with reading and is part of every reading lesson. By improving the rules and use of phonics and grammar, the student will make progress in reading overall. It is an exciting adventure!

Study Skills

I teach one-on-one students who have learning challenges in grades K-12. My work requires me to constantly adjust lessons and teaching methods to accommodate student's different learning styles. The goal is to equip the student with strategies and methods of improving their academics on their own. These study skills make a significant difference as the student applies them. I use concrete study helps, teaching the student how to use them and helps that the student can continue to use long after tutoring ends.
