I am a creative and innovative educator with over ten years of experience teaching elementary and middle school children with a broad variety of abilities and special needs. I have also been a detail oriented curriculum developer who pioneered and proved many new educational programs in the following subjects: Latin, Language Arts, History.

In Latin, I taught vocabulary and the classical roots of English to students as young as third grade. In Language Arts, I hosted Literary Guilds and gave students a basic foundation of English grammar to make their compositions sparkle with active verbs and lively adjectives. In History, I covered the subject with both breadth and depth, creating a notebook called the Book of Centuries which gave a place for students to record observed artifacts in a chronological and beautiful format.

My past students love me, and I am a bit of a legend at past schools. I like working one on one with students who have difficulties in composing their thoughts or fixing what is wrong in their present writing. I hope that I can help you love the English language in all of it intricacies.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am presently certified to teach High School English in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I have a broad experience with teaching elementary school.

English

As a teacher of Latin for over a decade, I have a confident command of English grammar and syntax. As a frequent travel blogger and recent graduate from a Masters program, I am not only a teacher of writing, but practice my own writing skills quite frequently. I will quickly diagnose where your student is struggling and put together a comprehensive program to remedy their situation.

ESL/ESOL

With a family that speaks two languages at home (Russian and English), I am no stranger to the difficulties of learning a second language. Though English is my first language, I have taught Latin and can speak conversational Russian after spending many summers with my family in Russia.

I am confident that I can help navigate the learning of English and get a student to a level of first speaking, then writing the language correctly.

Microsoft Publisher

Having used Publisher for years in creating newsletters for multiple organizations, I can help a client both with their design and technique. I have used many different versions of MS Publisher including the present one.

Phonics

Most people understand that the English language has 26 letters, but did you know that the sounds made by those letters/ letter combinations is limited to about 70 distinct sounds called phonemes? My tutoring will enable a student to identify those phonemes within a word and sort out the available ways to say each phoneme.

I have worked with elementary students for over a decade and also older students that need remedial work in phonics. Usually I start with phoneme flashcards and insure mastery of those before moving on to words. Once a student knows the variety of sounds and can test a word with them until they hear something recognizable, mastery of larger words begins.

Social Studies

The study of history and society is one of my greatest passions. As an elementary teacher, I helped students achieve a greater grasp of history by working out a Book of Centuries that contained at least one significant event for every century of time. As a Social Studies teacher, I am very keen on grabbing a student's attention with a good piece of historical fiction, a story combining sound historical facts with believable characters that contribute a sense of local color and make history much more intimate and personal.

For the student who struggles remembering dates, events, and personalities, I will interview them and find out what in their life can connect with the material studied. History, after all, is a bunch of personal narratives woven into a big picture.

Study Skills

I have an excellent command of a variety of different subjects myself. As a German-American, I am also naturally bent towards good time management myself, and I believe that I can impart that to others. I can help a person looking to hone in on the important tasks and leave the others for a more cursory approach.
