I am a Certified Experienced Elementary Education
Tutor &Teacher who specializes in Remedial Skills and Individualizing Programs to meet each of my student's individual needs. I am also a Reading
Specialist so I have had extra extensive training in diagnosing reading problems and using special techniques to correct them. I have taught many of my students as well as some of their parents how to speak, write, and read English
more fluently. I also Tutor high school students who are preparing for their upcoming SAT
Tests or GED
My Motto Is: "Catch Up, Keep Up, or Get Ahead!"
I work closely with you and your child's teacher(s) to come up with a plan that will benefit them the most. My students and parents always show me how much they appreciate all the extra time and effort I put into the lessons I provide. I hear comments like Ms. Sharon explains things so that it makes sense to me, or she really helped me study for my science
test and now I understand the information. Thank-you for showing Johnny how to figure out the cause and effect in his reading assignments. This is why I Tutor to help these students out with these problems so that when they are in the classroom things aren't so difficult for them. Every student is an individual and each brings their own criteria of what needs to be worked on and that is the beauty of it they get to have me work on the skill or skills that they want their child to have and know that with me that is the professional way their child will be treated.
Being able to work with a student individually with all of the focus on them, making them the center of attention, gives them a good feeling. When they feel good about themselves this translates into making them be able to learn and concentrate on just what they need.
I have experience with tutoring in all of the academic areas plus FCAT PREP for all grades K-6. This year with the implementation of the Common Core I will be offering COMMON CORE PREP for all of my students. The school system is referring to the test as the FSA (Florida Standards Assessment Test). I have for use all of the Broward County School textbooks plus lots of additional supplemental materials. I have materials available to practice in preparation for the the COMMON CORE Test (FSA Test) in all of the grade Levels from grade K-8. I administer and go over actual test questions that will appear on the test. I teach them good test taking strategies plus preparing mentally for the Test. If it is tutoring for everyday subject material or getting ready for the big COMMON CORE test I work to make the student feel good about themselves whether they are being remediated or just working appropriately where they should be. I have many years of experience Teaching and Tutoring students with all types of learning difficulties including autistic
, LD, speech
delayed, gifted, English as a second language
so I am well aware of the difficulties and challenges many of these children have in the classroom environment. I also help them out with techniques that can help them when they are in the classroom and having difficulty with certain things. Every child is an individual and they deserve that opportunity when they are being Tutored during my sessions with me.
I feel very happy that a parent is willing to compensate their child's education with Tutoring and I expect and give you the total hour for the session. Your child works for the entirety of the Lesson. Knowing that I want your dollars spent to be worthwhile for you and your child's benefit. I have References available if you wish to find out how Parents and Students present and past feel about my services.
By offering your child the opportunity to have a tutor you are making their academic journey an easier one for them.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss your child's concerns.
