Subject areas I enjoy teaching are: math, science, reading/writing, language arts, and social studies. I am especially enjoy helping students in the area of reading/comprehension and writing essays/compositions using children's literature.
As a teacher I understand each student has different learning styles, skills, and abilities. I am able to assess the individual need of the student and help the student develop their skills and confidence in themselves.
English is a subject I enjoy teaching and tutoring. For many students, including native speakers of English, developing proficiency in English is a challenge. I encourage students to read daily and to read a variety of literature. This will increase their vocabulary, correct use of grammar, and ability to clearly and concisely express their thoughts and ideas both orally and in writing. I welcome the opportunity to tutor students in this subject.

I am an experienced teacher in elementary grades, kindergarten - 6th grade. One of my areas of expertise is teaching reading to young readers.

Using a variety of children's literature, sight words, and phonics are some of the ways I help elementary students to develop their reading skills.

I am a certified teacher in grades Pre-K to 5th grade. One of the areas I love to help students is spelling. Sometimes spelling words correctly can be tricky. By reading a variety of children's literature and using a dictionary when writing sentences, this can help students to become familiar with the correct spelling of words and also introduce new vocabulary.
I am a certified elementary teacher for over ten years. To successfully learn subjects, such as math, reading, writing, etc. it is important to have good study skills. To begin, a student needs to establish a conducive time, place/environment, and identify the specific areas to focus on. Using a dictionary, flashcards, charts, etc. are good educational tools for developing study skills.
