Are you or your child experiencing difficulty with reading, writing or math?
I am currently licensed with the State of California to teach elementary school. I retired 3 years ago after teaching for 16 years in K- 5 classrooms. I am highly qualified to assess and then teach appropriate phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, handwriting, grammar, spelling, and composition. While language arts are my first interest I also have training and experience teaching elementary Math. For the past 13 of the 16 years I worked with second language students and understand their special language needs.
It would give me great pleasure to bring your child's skills to grade level.
For 16 years I taught grades 1 - 6. 12 years were spent in grades 1 and 2. I am primarily interested in teaching beginning readers, writers, and math students.
I taught phonics to first and second grade students for 16 years for two CA public school districts. The publisher I am most familiar with is Open Court although I have used other ones. My experience also includes building phonemic fluency. Since retiring I have been tutoring beginning readers phonics as well as sight words, vocabulary, comprehension, word parts, grammar, etc.
For 12 years I taught first and second grade reading in the public schools. Topics covered included; letter identification, phonemic sounds, blends, digraphs, dipthongs, word families, short and long vowels, prefixes, suffixes, comprehension, spelling, handwriting, writing sentences, paragraphs, and personal letters, vocabulary, grammar, and story comprehension.
Although I have been trained and have worked with several grade levels, my expertise and personal interest are with first and second grade students, or any children, who are classified as emerging readers.
