Hi, my name is Sarah. I have many years of experience tutoring students of all ages. I have tutored students in first and second grade in reading, math, and science. I have passed classes in AVID tutoring, and tutored high school students with this method in math, history, language arts, and cultural studies. I have also tutored in college level algebra.

I also have training in the Barton Reading and Spelling System for students with dyslexia. This method is of great value to parents who have children who struggle in reading, writing, and math in school.

The Barton Reading and Spelling System gives me the knowledge and tools to help students with dyslexia improve their reading and writing capabilities. Many children struggle because they have dyslexia, but have not been diagnosed. It is so important to test children for dyslexia and then get them the help that they need. Many schools fail to realize that students have dyslexia. These students struggle all throughout their school years, not receiving the help that they need. The Barton Reading and Spelling System is recommended by the International Dyslexia Association as a method that addresses the needs of students with dyslexia. I plan to use this system to diagnose and train students who have dyslexia.

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.

Algebra 1

I am proficient in Algebra.

Aspergers

I have worked for a company providing behavioral therapy for clients with autism. As a prerequisite for this work, I trained in and passed classes on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Aspergers Syndrome is classified under Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). I understand methods of helping people with ASD process and learn the material being presented them, and ways of helping them succeed.

Autism

I have worked for a company providing behavioral therapy for clients with autism. As a prerequisite for this work, I trained in and passed classes on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). I understand methods of helping people with autism process and learn the material being presented them, and ways of helping them succeed.

Bible Studies

I attended Bible College for 4 years, and graduated with a BA in General Ministries. I have studied the Bible all my life and attend church regularly.

Dyslexia

I have completed a four week training course in the Barton Reading & Spelling System. I have then put this training into practice with several students I have previously tutored. This system has been recognized worldwide as one of the top educational methods for tutoring students with dyslexia. I have found the program to be most helpful when tutoring students with dyslexia.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked for a company called Give Every Child a Chance. For this company, I tutored 1st through 8th grade students in a variety of school subjects. I also have many years of private tutoring experience with many different students of all ages.

Reading

I have experience with a local tutoring company that focuses on children in first through eighth grade. Math and Reading are our target subjects that we focus on when teaching kids.
