Summer day tutor spots fill up fast. I am now taking reservations for those wanting to move forward to start the new year strong. i ALWAYS see such great growth in academic skills and in confidence for my kids who move to day time tutoring spots while school is out. Some students are just trailing behind all year, but now they finally have the opportunity to work on filling in gaps and growing with fluency rate! Comprehension skills are so important for the kids who have their reading
level down. Many of my first through third grade
students have test taking strategies as a main summer time goal so they can move up their scores up in the 90 to 100% range. Call now and enroll and I'll be sure to get you into a desired time that will work for your schedule.
A special learning studio in my home sets my program apart from clustered groups in shopping center programs, or student distractions at the student's house. The use of research based program, time tested materials, positive reinforcers, and manipulatives support my students with their goals.
Spring Special- NEW Students who start March 16th thru 20th- get third lesson FREE! I have daytime spots available also for summer break!
I am a teacher from an award-winning school, and I teach transitional kindergarten
this year, but I have taught all lower grades for multiple years. I have a master's degree in education and a certificate in teaching advanced learners. My specialty is a unique and engaging approach in teaching children to read using stylized markings to reach early learners or struggling learners when others have not been able to help. I teach using simultaneous multi-sensory participation. If we can feel it, see it, hear it... we can remember it! This interactive teaching style has helped me teach many international students and even many three year olds to read! Some of my tutoring students have Individualized Educational Plans in school, and many have focus issues, while others just want to stay ahead of the curve and learn common core standards before they are introduced in school. I really enjoy supporting my students and families as their partner as they are navigating the educational system in pursuit of the best possible education for their child. I often have siblings who come to me, and I offer a family discount to help out. Sometimes students utilize my services for a while, then come in to see me for a "tune up" just to make sure their are no gaps in their growth. I have also consulted with school learning centers and helped hundreds of students move from below grade level to at or above.
To give more specifics, I help students increase fluency levels in reading by targeting goals with them. I support those individual needs by re-teaching and to fill "gaps" using diagnostic tests. I considering their unique learning style while helping them progress. In math
, I help students understand concepts and remember how to do them in fun ways. This method gives them the ability to retain the information and be able to do this again later. My expertise is especially helpful to start young children off strong so their academic career is off to a positive start. I believe I help meet the needs of my students by addressing their learning styles including kinesthetic learning, verbal and oral learners. Thinking outside of the box is something I like to do as an educator. I have been told that my skills and my perspective combine to help students kids grow.
I became a teacher, because I love the challenge of helping students to reach their full potential. I have a passion for teaching children with little sayings or physical "helpers" that help children forever remember how to accomplish a certain skill or standard. My students often become wonderful teachers themselves because they can explain phonic patterns and math approaches so that others can learn or comprehend. I always help my students work on critical thinking and the "next" thing as I am working with them. I have trained many teachers in working with children in small groups.
Successful strategies in which I make learning a game have become my "secrets" of the trade. One of my students told me last week that he wanted to come to me each day instead of his other regular class! Teaching is an art
combined. I have the ability to help your child when school alone is not working, or when that "next step" is not happening for them. Tutoring is a wonderful gift to a child.
I'd be happy not only to help students achieve, but to help parents help their children as well.
