Hello. I am a private tutor and a substitute teacher K - 12. My BA is in English/Literature & Communications. My MS is in publishing. My expertise is in showing students how to improve their writing skills, reading comprehension and vocabulary. I am a homework helper as well. Written expression is the most important skill to develop, because it is used to write reports and research papers in all academic subjects, as well as for test essay responses. I also tutor in researching, taking notes, study skills, organizational skills, time management, and assignment planning - all part of the package that promotes academic success. Tutors help students who want to achieve higher grades. I use fun methods to get students involved and motivated to maximize their potential.
I can tutor all grade levels and adapt my methods to appeal to the specific age of the student, his/her temperament, and learning style.
This academic year, 2012-13, I am offering a new tutoring program specifically for half-day preschool and half-day kindergarten students: how to write the alphabet and learn phonics. Because the student-teacher ratio in public school is often 25:1, students cannot receive the individual instruction they require when learning how to form the letters with the correct pencil grip. These skills are essential for developing legible handwriting. Many young learners need more time and repetition than they can receive during school to master these skills. Some children are ready to learn how to write and read before they begin formal school.
I hope to hear from you soon. I will travel to your home, to your local library, or you may travel to my home office. I will consider a distance of 20 miles.
