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.

ADD/ADHD

As an elementary school professional teacher, k-12, I have taught ADD/ADHD students in the classroom and small group classes. I have taught ADD/ADHD students in the WyzAnt tutoring program and the parents have been pleased with the results. The classroom teachers have also praised me for my success for the increased attention and learning in the classroom. If the parents would like me to keep in contact with the primary classroom teacher, as I have in the past, I am pleased to do so.

Bible Studies

I grew up in the Christian faith and my father was an historical biblical scholar, from whom I learned a great deal regarding the various interpretations of the bible, the geography and travels of Jesus as well as his disciples. Where Christianity began, how paganism played a role in Christianity as well as how the Lutheran's split from the Roman Catholic church. How and why the Bible played a role in migration to America as well as Biblical wars. I have also used the Concorance, been involved in many biblical studies, and know how to do biblical research.

Drawing

I have been drawing since I was a child and I continue to draw. I have had a few drawing courses in college. I have recently become an Acrylic Certified Instructor with Grumbacher. I have been hired by Michael's to teach Acrylic drawing.

Dyslexia

I have taught dyslexic students in grades k-6 and have been successful in their learning process. I have taught dyslexic students in my classroom as well as in a small group setting. I am patient with their progress and let the student set the pace for their learning.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a current Colorado Professional Teacher's License in Elementary Education (k-6). I have taught elementary students for ten years and have been a Title I teacher as well as a Reading and Math interventionist for a large part of my teaching career.

I have taken many professional development classes in elementary reading and math and have taught many different types of curriculum which will facilitate my ability to teach to your specific needs.

ESL/ESOL

I have had many ESL classes and workshops here in the US. I was taught how to teach ESL in California before we left for China. I taught ESL immersion classes in Kunming China at the Metallurgic College to teachers who were teaching English to middle school students.

Microbiology

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Medical Technology, and a large part of our training was microbiology. I have worked in a microbiology lab.

Painting

I have had oil painting classes and have been licensed as a Grumbacher acrylic teacher. I begin teaching at the Michael's store within the next month.

Phonics

As an elementary teacher I have taught phonics, beginning with the ability to recognize a letter to a sound. It also incorporates blends suh as th, ba etc. Then the phonemic awareness turns into word recognition.

Reading

As a professional educator with two MA's in Education I am able to help many students in reading comprehension, as well as structuring paragraphs etc. I have written many professional papers which needed a high level of reading comprehension on the part of the professor. In both programs I received a 4.0 GPA.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills to my elementary students and have had study skills classes in college. I have even tutored study skills to vet techs.

Writing

I have been teaching elementary writing for fifteen years. I have been a classroom teacher, interventionist as well as an individual tutor. Schools and parents are pleased with my results and the gains of the student.
