I have experience with tutoring a student in a regular classroom, with any type of school subject. I'm also tutoring an adult male who has a reading disorder as a volunteer with the Topeka Literacy Council. I graduated in May 2010 with a master's in education with a reading emphasis. I will help any student with computer classes, or reading problems, literature and English classes/developing study skills.

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 experience in this area as I've been a substitute teacher for the past five years teaching Social Studies, Science, Math, English and Reading in the elementary grades. I do have a masters degree in education which I received in May 2010. This past year I've had a part time job through the YWCA as a site director for a program called Kids Qwest. This is an after school program for elementary students until their parents get off work to pick them up. In this program, they have a 30 minute block for kids to work on their homework. I helped many kids with their homework in math.

Study Skills

I've helped other students through Wyzant.com in their study skills through tutoring in Math/Reading using practice lessons through work sheets, covering skills on a dry erase board, flash cards, and presenting problems with worksheets I made up. I also work as a substitute teacher grades k through 12, and have helped students' at the elementary/secondary level develop their study skills while preparing for a test such as assigned work sheets, note taking, preparing outlines for a paper, or underlining important concepts in a textbook.

Reading is FUNdamental — Kristen seems very passionate about teaching and is even furthering her skillset to this day. Though my son perhaps took awhile to warm up to her, and he can be uncooperative a good percentage of the time, when I see him excited and smiling when the session is over, I know the time and money spent was used effectively. ...
