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.

ADD/ADHD

ADD and ADHD are a lot of the children who are in special ed class rooms which I have worked in.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades for 30 years. I was certified in MA up until last year. I have worked in an after school program, Pinnacle Learning, in Fall River with children from grade 1 to grade 5 for 7 years.

Phonics

As an elementary teacher, I have included phonics in my reading classes. The sight words teaching went out a long time ago.

Social Studies

When I worked in Taunton, I worked with students who were unable to go to school. I taught social studies, current events and English. This was under the direction of the teacher in whose classroom the students would have been. All work was submitted to the high school.

Special Needs

I substituted in Seekonk, MA in the special ed classroom for 5 years. I also worked in the North Attleboro school special ed class rooms for about 5 years.
