I have been teaching for over 25 years in public school, private school, home school, and college. I have been very actively tutoring in the last 10 years. I can help students in most elementary and middle grade subjects, including Algebra. I home schooled my three children for most their pre-college education. For reading, I use a phonics based approach with which I taught my own children to read, and I can include internet sources and games.

I love to work with students of all ages, and I use a positive, encouraging approach. I do not yell at or belittle any student. That's not my style. I often employ a questioning method of instruction. I assist the student in discovering the concepts or answers for themselves as much as possible, although at time demonstration and or explanation is certainly necessary! I use observation, questions, and some testing determine where instruction and remediation should begin.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a degree in Elementary Education from UGA. I have taught home school, public school, and private school. I have also tutored, mostly in math, reading , or language arts. I am able to tutor most elementary subjects, however.
I enjoy working with children and employ a positive, encouraging approach. I use a variety of materials and resources, including internet-based games and lessons. I listen to and observe my students in order to develop and provide appropriate instruction.

Phonics

I taught my own children to read using a phonics-based approach called The Writing Road to Reading. While a few "sight words" are helpful to know, the student MUST have phonetic skills to decode new words. When multiple senses are employed in the learning process, students learn to use phonics more efficiently and accurately. I use sight, touch, and hearing to reinforce phonics skills. English has many exceptions to the rules, and a student created notebook in which words are written, marked, and studied becomes a prized tool for may students.
