Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Dyslexia is a disability due to a defect in the brain’s processing of written material. These students show a struggle in their reading competence that doesn’t match their expected level of intelligence. Quite often these students are very gifted. They have normal vision, letter recognition and recognition of meaning in pictures and object and yet the reading and spelling process is very compromised. Orton Gillingham Programs are very successful with these students. I am certified in the Barton Reading and Spelling System, which has specific methods for instructing and helping dyslexic students.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified, licensed elementary school teacher. I have taught for 16 years in public, private and online schools. I have also tutored for 2 years and have homeschooled my own children during their Junior High years.

Phonics

I have taught several phonics programs, including Barton and the F.A.S.T. program. I have also used DIBELS and DIBELS Next in my teaching practices.

Special Needs

I am a certified, licensed teacher with 16 years of experience. I have a Special Ed endorsement through the PLACE Test with a categorized score of "very good" scored 248 on the Place Test. I work with Special Ed endorsement in my tutoring and with Jeffco Schools.
