I am willing to travel and I live locally. I have had experience teaching and tutoring students in elementary grades. I am a certified teacher in Oklahoma, certified in grades first through eighth, with an emphasis is reading, writing, and vocabulary. I use books to help with reading comprehension; these books are picked by the student. The words that are unfamiliar are used as vocabulary words that are defined by a dictionary. The student learns the meaning of the word and then writes a definition that makes since to them for further comprehension of the words. Again the unfamiliar words are used as spelling words which are practiced and quizzed in the following sessions.
