I have been in education for a number of years. I taught special needs students with mildly intellectual challenges. After retirement, I decided to continue to help students with their academic achievements through tutoring. I have been a tutor for six years. I have tutored small groups in elementary, middle, and high school settings. My other experiences with tutoring have been in students' homes and in public and/or school media centers.

I love to see students learn and succeed. I want to see how much students know and then go beyond that with hands-on materials, related resources, and quiz them on what they have learned. I believe that students need to stay on a challenging subject until it is understood and mastered.

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.

English

Teach grammar and writing simultaneously. Detail the writing process and integrate instructions on usage and mechanics. Show students how to edit and make revisions during writing process. Help students understand the parts of speech and how they are used in sentences.

Reading

I can help to improve student's confidence and proficiency with fluency, interactive reading, comprehension, word study, and test-taking skills.

Special Needs

I am qualified to tutor in the specific subject because of my educational background which included methods/materials for MR/LD, behavioral modification, classroom management, and curriculum/instructions with B.S. and M.Ed. degrees.

I have taught elementary, and middle school students with learning disabilities and mental disabilities to be more adaptive within school settings. I have read and written IEPs, taught students on their functional levels in reading, language arts, math, social studies, science, geography, communication/social skills, and life skills to be better productive in school and in the community.
