I am currently employed with Rome City Schools. I taught 6 months of the school year in first grade. I will be teaching 3rd grade reading and writing next year. I graduated from Berry College, a highly recognized school by local school systems when hiring teachers. I am certified by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission to teach preschool through fifth grade (copy of this certificate available upon request). I have done coursework and field experience in Reading Diagnostics which involved a thorough report on a 2nd grader's fluency and comprehension in reading. I have designed and implemented intervention lessons for this student and was able to show growth. I can determine children's reading ability (in fluency and comprehension). I can determine what sight words they know and implement the 7 step VAKT method to increase their knowledge of sight words. I can improve their reading fluency and comprehension.
I have tutored in a daycare setting as the after school teacher with all grades, pre-K through fifth. I have had experience teaching the Georgia Performance Standards and I am becoming familiar with the new Common Core, and I know what is expected of our students at each grade level. I know the pressures of the CRCT and how to make learning more enjoyable with less stress. I can also improve your child's self-image as a reader by showing them how to enjoy reading and how much they have grown! I am also able to tutor in any subject at the elementary level. I can tutor reading and writing at any grade level (pre-K through adult). I can even tutor in basic computer skills.
