ADD/ADHD

I have been teaching elementary school children for 20 years. Each year has brought me experience with ADD/ADHD students. I work closely with our ADD/ADHD coordinator to implement strategies tailored to improve performance of each student.

I have raised many children, including foster children, and a large percentage of them have ADD/ADHD. I have sought resources and therapy for children in my own home.

Living with and working with ADD/ADHD children has provided me with a broad range of tools to use.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a teaching certificate from the state of Georgia certifying me to teach grades pre-K through 8th grade.

I have a masters in education from University of West Georgia in middle grades.

I have been teaching elementary school for 20 years.

Elementary Math

I have an add on certification in math. I have taught elementary math for 20 years. I currently co-teach 5th grade math. I have attended two summer sessions of writing the CRCT test questions.

Phonics

I am a certified teacher in grades pre-k - 8. I have been an EIP teacher for 4 years. I work with at risk children in reading. I work closely with the special education and regular teachers to implement strategies to help at risk readers. Many of these strategies are in phonics. Examples of programs that I use are Great Leaps and Ultimate Phonics. I keep data on my students to show progress.

I have discovered some students who use other strategies to read besides phonics and are successful readers.

Reading

I have taught reading in elementary school for 20 years. I have worked with reading recovery programs for 6 years. I am heavily involved in reteaching reading during our county's Maymester which gets the students ready to retake the CRCT.

Special Needs

I have been an EIP teacher in elementary school for 6 years. I have an add on certification in math. I work with special needs children in reading and math. I work closely with the special education teachers to insure that the needs of my students are met. I have learned a lot over the years about teaching special needs children.

Study Skills

I have worked with elementary school students for twenty years. In that time, I have spend a great deal of time teaching study skills along with other subjects.

An all-around terrific tutor!! — Alice has been working with my two sons (ages 7 & 8) for some time now and thus far, the experience has been very positive.

Both children have some minor learning disabilities and Alice ...
