My name is Scott and I am an experienced tutor and educator that has been working in education for five years. I earned my undergraduate degree in education from Dominican University of California and I my master's degree in history from Sonoma State University. I am currently earning my teaching credential from Sacramento State University. I am a professionally trained reading tutor and I have been very successful helping kids with reading problems improve their skills. I was trained by Lindamood Bell Learning Processes and I successfully helped kids struggling with reading improve their reading scores by a whole grade level in just one summer. I have also tutored students in math, history and writing.
I have worked with kids of all ages. I was a teacher with an after school program in the Bay area, where I managed classes of twenty kids. When it comes time to tutor, I like to reinforce skills that are being introduced by the classroom teachers, but adjust instruction based on a student's ability level. When tutoring reading, I have highly effective methods I use to improve phonetic awareness and reading comprehension.
It is important for me as a tutor to work closely with students and parents to develop a plan that will best help students meet their academic goals. I encourage parent feedback and I am happy to offer homework help in addition to other skill-building methods I use.
