Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a Language Arts teacher since 2007. I am a trained teacher who is a certified reading and writing tutor.

Currently, I am a Language Arts teacher at Agape Corner School in Durham where I work with students at varying academic levels. My areas of expertise are reading comprehension, writing, grammar and syntax, vocabulary, and spelling.

In addition to Language Arts, I teach Math to the Elementary and Middle School students. My methodology involves working with students at their level, developing specialized projects for each student and utilizing math drills to help students learn and master concepts.

I enjoy teaching and have proven success. My students often advance at least one grade level and develop greater confidence in their abilities. My most recent student aced her End of Grade exams, after working with me for 4 months, even though her teachers predicted she would have to repeat the third grade.

Public Speaking

I have been a president and very active member of Minutemen Toastmasters Club. As a toastmaster, I have had extensive training in the various areas of public speaking. I have over 15 years of public speaking experience with training in such areas as using humor in a speech, the introductory speech, debating, the informative speech, the marketing speech and the correct use of grammar.

Toastmasters International is world renowned and has members all over the world. This organization is known for producing excellent speakers, and I am honored to be trained in such an organiztion.

Reading

I have more than 20 years experience in the reading and writing field. I have skills and experience in reading comprehension, spelling, grammar, writing and editing.

I have tutored elementary school students, middle and high school students and adults.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
