This homeschooling mom of three understands the matchless value and beauty of one-on-one instruction. My oldest son graduated at 16 and began college. He now tutors for WyzAnt! My homeschool has received biannual accolades from our state for the past 18 years. My 10th grader has been studying high school texts for the past three years while my 7th grader has been studying middle school texts for the past two years, and she reads at an 11th grade level. I believe in fostering a stress-free learning environment with lots of resources, encouragement, guidance, and love.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

Knowledge of the Holy Scriptures is absolutely essential to all of mankind whether faithful or not. I will guide you through thoroughly interpreting the Word accurately. You will be amazed at the inerrant and logical Truths contained within the Holy Bible as well as the so-called forbidden ancient texts. We will investigate Truths within the Nag Hammadi Scriptures as well as the Dead Sea Scrolls. There is little that you will not understand after our research. I have studied the Scriptures since 2002, being tutored by my Pastor for one year. I am a nationally certified Deaconess, and I have facilitated worship, Bible study, and prayer group in my home congregation for the past 4 years. I teach from all the ancient texts, and have been affiliated with various denominations over the past 20 years. Therefore, I am aware of all doctrines and dogma of Bible referencing faiths.

Elementary (K-6th)

I homeschooled my oldest son from Pre-K through 10th grade, and he was eligible to graduate and begin college prior to 11th grade. I currently homeschool my youngest son who is completing 8th grade, but studying high school level texts. My homeschooled daughter is a 5th grader Who reads at an 11th grade/adult level according to the Bader Reading Assessment, and studies middle-school texts. I have homeschooled and passed every state assessment with accolades twice per year for almost 16 years.

Public Speaking

The ability to speak properly is essential to all our relationships. I hope you will come to see that almost all speech is public! When we exchange ideas at school, work, and play, we are presenting an image of ourselves that is either positive or negative. When we meet others, we have only 3 seconds to make a first impression. Our words must be well-chosen and grammatically sound. My students will learn confidence, eye-contact, body language, proper diction, voice projection, body image, and vocabulary.

I have loved public speaking since I was 8-years-old. I would make up news stories and broadcast them for my friends. In junior high, I ran the school newspaper and lead the news team. I did the same in high school, but this time I ran the literary publication as well as served on our award-winning Speech Team. In college, I chose Public Speaking as my major, and delivered Eulogies and church-related speeches throughout my life. I still facilitate a home-church, still teach speech to my children in our homeschool, and I am always eager for an excuse to speak to the public.

Reading

Reading well is the foundation of all education. Comprehension is the foundation of all relationships. My children learned to read long before 'school-age'. A child will struggle in every subject until he or she learns to decode phonics and interpret the alphabet. I even taught an illiterate parent to sight read. I have a bias toward phonics, though, as taught in my home-school. I can teach anyone with a desire to learn how to read and increase one's comprehension.

Study Skills

Effective study skills are the foundation of learning. Students must be able to take good notes and build a learning tool from those notes. I will help you to choose key words in note-taking and guide you through the disciplines of good study habits by making what you are assigned to learn a part of yourself, and therefore, dreary studying is no longer necessary. We will learn rather than memorize.

As a home-schooler, my children have become experts at studying. There is no "homework" time, so I teach to study as you learn. I have taught effective study skills from the ages of 4 (learning phonics) to college level (undergraduate).

Vocabulary

A strong vocabulary allows a student to communicate effectively, and to process and think efficiently. I have taught vocabulary in my homeschool for 18 years and believe its importance to be second only to reading.

Writing

The ability to communicate through writing is a foundational real world skill. I have been writing since elementary school. I served as Editor of both my Junior High and High School Literary Publications.

Rosia’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Rosia. View all of Rosia’s resources

The organization for which my daughter and I volunteer meets outside for crafts at the picnic tables of our local park. We often hang the finished crafts in the tree to dry while we take nature hikes to search for baby animals and bullfrogs. After hiking for approximately 20 minutes, we return to the tree, distribute crafts, and send the little ones back to their adults. 

I keep students motivated during the summer by treating the summer months no differently than the fall, winter, or spring. As a homeschooler, I have the option of doing so. I school year-round because I don't believe in breaks in learning. My husband is a public school teacher and complains every year about his students' loss of skills during the summer. I suggested telling the parents to treat... read more
