Tutoring offers students such a rewarding learning opportunity! I have enjoyed teaching, consulting and tutoring as a licensed teacher since 1999. My experience include students with and without Special Needs ages 2-26. I strive to find and reinforce the love of learning intrinsic in each student.

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.

Dyslexia

I have experience working with students with Dyslexia and using phonics to help them learn to read. I have Special Education as well as reading and writing certifications on my teaching license.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am licensed to teach Special Education in Colorado for ages 0-8 with endorsements in literacy and math. I have had over a decade of experience with ages 2-23 as a tutor, consultant, and teacher.

ESL/ESOL

For over 5 years I have taught reading, writing and math to students who are also learning English as a second language. I teach using only English with games and stories to help students enjoy and excel at their learning pursuits.

Phonics

I have successfully used instruction of word families and blends to build phonemic awareness in developing readers with and without Dyslexia. Games and word activities are fun ways to help students associate consonant and vowel combinations with appropriate spelling. Writing activities reinforce the learning while improving spelling and reading.

Reading

Literacy is such an crucial skill! Reading can be fun and is best paired with writing. My experience includes using phonics, spelling rules, using root words, prefixes and suffixes to find word meanings. I also have taught reading comprehension.

Special Needs

My experience includes working with children with various needs and challenges including Autism, ADD, ADHD, and Down's Syndrome to name a few. I also have a Colorado Teaching license in Special Education for ages 2-23.
