Being a former educator (of eight years), teaching grades kindergarten through fifth, I'm aware that students learn and understand through different learning styles and methods. I will patiently but concisely help you to understand concepts that you're having trouble with and apply this knowledge on tests, exams and quizzes.

Presently, I am a GED reading and writing instructor for the past two years helping adults obtain their high school diploma and reach their dreams.

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.

Bible Studies

I can provide assistance in understanding Old Testament and New Testament Biblical concepts and characters. This includes review and life application.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught grades kinder through fifth for eight years.

GED

I am presently a GED reading and writing instructor for my local church.

Reading

I assist in reading for children in grades kinder through adult. I also offer phonics for basic beginners in reading. My format is very simple. Within my teaching, I also include visuals, manipulatives and worksheets to keep the student engaged.

Spelling

With my fun, interactive and unconventional approach, students will come away having a greater appreciation for words and the English language, in general. They will learn a great skill that will carry them wherever they go.

Study Skills

Having been an elementary school teacher and a current reading and writing GED instructor, I understand the importance of time management and prioritizing that time around your studies. I can assist the student with the needed skills and mindset to make learning fun and effective.
