All of Darlene’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Darlene’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored elementary children in the Denver Public Schools system through a tutoring company. I tutored students in Grades 1 through 6. I tutored math and reading mostly. I am good at organizing information and explaining it to elementary students (as well as students in higher grades and adult students of all ages). I look at the information in their textbooks from their point of view. I intuitively understand things that might be confusing to them, and I explain those things to them. Children are always free to ask me anything at any time, and I will explain whatever they don’t understand. I have good methods for teaching math and reading. Most elementary subjects are just a matter of reading and understanding what one reads. So the most important subjects in elementary school are math and reading, along with developing study skills, at which I also excel.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL classes for Jefferson County Schools and for a nonprofit. In addition, I conduct my own private classes. I specialize in teaching Spanish speakers. With my degree in Spanish linguistics, I am uniquely qualified to explain the differences between Spanish and English. I am available to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels of English to those who are learning English as a second language. My knowledge of the English language is at the highest level, and I teach English to English speakers as well.

Macintosh

I have been using the Macintosh for several years, and I love my computer. I use it for just about everything. I love learning new things on my computer, and this is one reason I'm in a Macintosh user group. I taught Macintosh computer use for Kinko's. I know and use several applications, including Word, Pages, FileMaker, AppleWorks, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Always my student's hands — not mine — are on the keyboard and the mouse. I am patient. I explain things well. I know how to communicate with a person who is trying to learn something. I am available to teach anyone from the beginning level (never saw a computer before or switching from the PC) to intermediate level. For information above that level, I rely on my computer club.

Phonics

English is a difficult language with respect to the connection between the written word and the spoken word. English words come from many different languages, and that is why we have so many variations in spelling and pronunciation. But there are groups of words and letters that act the same way. There are patterns and rules that one can learn by organizing words and sounds. So reading and pronunciation can be made easier by learning these patterns and rules and groupings. My degree in linguistics helps me to understand both English and Spanish in this respect, and my teaching skills allow me to communicate this knowledge to students and help them to learn how to better read and pronounce English. I teach these things to students from elementary school age to adults, to both native English speakers and native Spanish speakers.

Social Studies

I would say that tutoring social studies consists mostly of assisting students with reading comprehension and learning the concepts discussed in their textbooks. I'm good at reading and understanding, and I'm very analytical, so I can help guide students in reading, analyzing, and understanding what they read. I can also teach good study skills.

Study Skills

I don't teach study skills as a separate subject. I teach study skills as part of each and every class that I teach or tutor.

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.
