I have excellent discounted rates (up to 50% off for each additional student, beyond the first student) available for siblings/groups of students struggling with the same subject.
We have only had a few sessions and I have already seen a difference in my daughter's math skills. Her teacher has noticed as well as she is doing so much better on her homework and tests!
Onalee was a wonderful tutor for my 8 year old son. She worked hard to meet him with his interests in mind; she communicated with him in a way that let me know she really gets kids! I was impressed with her involvement and her advice for me to further work with him. She arrived on time for each session and came with a great spirit. My son was excited to see her come up the driveway! WyzAnt was a great and easy way to find the help our family needed.
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.
I completed my bachelor's degree in elementary education, and received my teaching certificate (k-8) from the state of Michigan. I taught for two years in a public school, and then made the decision to become a stay-at-home mom. As a part of that journey, I have become a homeschooling mom. I am currently teaching grades K, 2, and 4 (with special needs allowances as needed). I am constantly working to learn more about all subject areas in an effort to keep up with and stay in touch with the information I am/will be teaching.
As a part of my homeschooling experience, I have been using the A Beka and Calvert curriculum, and both utilize phonics as a stand alone subject. I have more recently familiarized myself with the All About Spellings program which utilizes the Orton Gillingham method of learning. This program uses the letter sounds, segmentation, and motor skills to teach phonics in a fun and engaging manner. I believe that I am very capable of teaching this subject matter to elementary aged students.
While I was teaching in a public school from 2001-2003, I taught a course on study skills as a part of our "homeroom" class. The course included learning about how to read for information, different ways to study for a test, and how to get information to move from short-term to long-term memory. The course included discussion, projection slides, and hands-on work.
