Elementary (K-6th)

Since working for a tutoring company in Sacramento, I have tutored many young children in grade school subjects, most commonly reading and writing. For reading comprehension and fluency, I follow reading-level appropriate materials as determined by the students' current abilities and then, through repetition and focus on phonics concepts, we move forward to more difficult books. This approach has worked with first, second, and third graders very well. I let my students choose among books at their current level, which I select, and then I have them repeat the reading once or twice until they read it fluently. After a first reading we review the phonetic concepts that have been causing them difficulty. Some reading series even have word lists and phonetic practice built into the books. The parents of the children I have tutored have been very happy with my services and their childrens' progress. I look forward to working with you and your child to achieve greater success for them in school.

Violin

I have played violin for 13 years, beginning when I was eleven. I have studied with several different private teachers and mastered various bowing and fingering techniques. In high school, I played with the Portland Symphony Youth Orchestra in Portland, ME, and I was accepted twice into the Maine All State Music Festival orchestra as a Second Violin.

I have also tutored three students, seven, ten, and 14 year olds, in beginning violin.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
