I would love the opportunity to help your child improve their learning and performance in school. I spent my undergraduate time studying Early Childhood Education with an emphasis on Reading. I have spent time teaching children from Kindergarten to 5th grade. I have 3 young children, one of whom I teach at home. I know that each child struggles in different ways and areas. I hope to sit down and learn what interests your child and use those interests to motivate them to learn. I have seen in tutoring and working in small groups with students that making sessions fun and encouraging help to keep them motivated to continue.

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)

From learning letters to learning the different parts of speech and beyond, the elementary school years are packed with information. I have experience with kids from 3 to grade 5. I have taught science, math, history (social studies), language arts to children of various levels. As the years progress the information the children need to retain in their grade becomes more specific and more complex. I spent my undergraduate time studying Early Childhood Education with an emphasis on Reading.

Grammar

Grammar is an important part of the language arts program. Grammar deals with sentence construction, word choice and use, punctuation, parts of speech and more. Being able to use grammar properly can set your child up for success in later life, by making writing less taxing. Proper word choice, use, and punctuation are essential in the work place today.

Phonics

I spent my undergraduate time studying Early Childhood Education with an emphasis on Reading. Phonics is a method used to teach reading and writing, through the use of phonemes. Phonics helps the student hear, identify and manipulate the sounds within speech. Phonics work to help students learn to 'sound out' words while reading or writing.

Reading

The ability to read is essential. Reading can cause problems for children in three main areas; decoding, fluency, and comprehension. Reading difficulties in decoding are seen in children who have trouble figuring out the word that is needed. Fluency is the child's ability to read a passage quickly. Comprehension deals with the problem of reading the passage and understanding it afterwards. A problem in any one of these areas can be extremely frustrating to a child. These problems take time and practice to help a child learn to read with ease.
