I'm an elementary school teacher and have been teaching for 6 years. I am certified in many areas including early childhood, elementary, students with disabilities, and became a reading specialist. I have been tutoring kids for over 10 years in all grade levels. Helping students succeed is my main goal.
I have a bachelors degree in elementary education from grades 1-6. I am also certified in early childhood education from birth to first grade. I have a masters degree in Literacy.
Elementary subjects that I can tutor are reading, writing, and math.
In reading, I can help beginner readers with alphabetic principle. Help them understand the alphabet and sounds to get them ready to decode sight words. I can help students learn different strategies such as chunking, using initial and final sounds, and context clue to help them decode. I can help students with fluency and comprehension. I can incorporate different graphic organizers to help students with their comprehension. I can help students understand main idea, sequencing, cause/effect, problem solution, visualizing, and asking questions across genres.
In mathematics, I can help students learn and apply new skills to help them understand and solve mathematical computations. I can provide manipulatives to help students solve different math problems.
In writing, I can help students follow the writing process in order for them to produce a written piece. I can help students generate ideas and guide them through the process. I can teach them sentence formation, how to edit and revise their work. I can help them form paragraphs and check spelling and grammar.
I can help students in all areas of elementary math. I can help students learn and apply strategies to help them complete math problems. I can teach them different ways of solving math problems.
I can help students in all areas of grammar to help them become better speakers, readers an writers. Some areas include proper sentences, sentence structure, punctuation, past/present/future tense of words, and subject verb agreement.
Since I have a degree in literacy, I can help students who need phonics instruction.
There are different areas of phonics students may require guidance. I can help students who have a hard time with speech sound. I can help students with articulation of sounds of the letters of the alphabet. Once students understand speech sounds we can learn letter sounds and how to sound out words. I can teach students how to decode words when putting sounds together we can make words such as the word cat....c-a-t. I can also help students with consonants, blends, short and long vowel sounds, digraphs, diphthongs, r-controlled syllables, vowel consonant e rule, and many other rules. The goal is to help students decode written words by sounding them out. students should then be able to identify sight words and high frequency words within phonics.
I am a reading specialist with a master's degree in literacy. I can help students become better readers. I can focus in all areas of reading including fluency, accuracy and comprehension. I can help students learn strategies and skills needed to become better readers.
It is Important for students to know and understand which study skills work for them. Everyone is different and needs different strategies to help them succeed. Knowing which study skill works is important for students. I can help students learn what works better for their learning need and help them apply these skills to their learning. Some students learn best by reading and listening, some students need rote learning which is repeating or rehearsal. Some students may use PQRST which is preview the topic, question, read, summarize, test (answer questions). Some students might like to use flash cards which are visual cues. I can also help students use diagrams and graphic organizers such as venn diagrams to help study various topics. The purpose of study skills is to help students realize that there are different tools and strategies that help students become efficient, organized and successful.
