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

Dyslexia

I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham method through the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education.

Elementary (K-6th)

In addition to being Orton-Gillingham trained through the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education, I have also studied language development, beginning reading, teaching elementary school math, learning styles, and special needs. I have over 20 years' experience teaching and tutoring. I have taught elementary age students in the classroom and also in private lessons. My experiences have developed in me a proficiency for breaking down concepts in a way that is easy to understand for the individual learner. Success in all subjects for an elementary student always hinges on his or her ability to read, learn basic math principles, and apply appropriate study skills. By increasing skills in these areas, I have empowered numerous students to achieve success in all school subjects.

Elementary Math

As part of my training for an education degree, I studied teaching elementary school math. I have over 20 years of tutoring and teaching experience and have helped a wide array of students in mathematics, from preschoolers learning basic concepts through high schoolers studying Algebra I or preparing for the SAT.

English

I am a certified language arts teacher with over 20 years of experience in education.

Phonics

I am a certified English/language arts teacher, and as such, have a solid training in phonics. In order to enhance my teaching, I have acquired additional credits in multi-sensory reading by training on the highly acclaimed Orton-Gillingham method. Additionally, I have extensive experience in private tutoring of all ages, including emerging readers who are new to phonemic awareness and older readers who need to fill in gaps in the foundational principles of phonics in order to improve their reading and comprehension.

Public Speaking

As a certified language arts teacher, public speaking and other stage arts were included in my training and are required as part of classroom teaching core standards. Additionally, I speak in front of audiences of various ages when I promote my children's book, Joey is Thankful. I have been filmed by CNN's Accent Health, WebMD, the Arthritis Foundation, and also by the American College of Rheumatology to share my personal journey of health and well being.

Reading

As a certified English-language arts teacher, I have experience in teaching all levels of reading, from pre-reading skills through adult learners. As an Orton-Gillingham trained reading instructor, I build a strong foundation in phonemic awareness through multi-sensory activities which maximize retention and keep the student engaged and excited about learning. I provide an initial assessment and periodic updates on the student's progress. These assessments are included in my hourly rate.

SSAT

I have assisted numerous students in preparing for the SSAT. As a former Associate Director of a prestigious local tutoring company which was one of the first to offer SSAT tutoring in metro Atlanta, I also arranged, observed, and evaluated group classes and our other tutors.

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.
