Hi! My name is Gail, and I have been in the teaching field for 30+ years. I love making learning fun and incorporating different techniques i.e. games, art and the like.

My Master's degree is in Education, with reading and early childhood endorsements (specialties added to my teaching credential).
I have owned/run a daycare facility. Many see me as a passionate and caring teacher, since families still stay in contact with me, 13 years later.

In addition, I have been a certified substitute teacher in kindergarten-eighth grade. My educational strengths are: penmanship, phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, primary mathematics, history and social studies.


As you can see, I have a vast amount of experience and knowledge in teaching various grades. I look forward to meeting/working with your child.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's Degree in teaching (k-8). I have taught in this area in the private and public systems for many years. I received my Bachelor's and Master's Degree from the University of Portland, in Portland, Oregon.

Phonics

With my Master's Degree in teaching, I took special classes in teaching reading. I received a Reading Endorsement, so that I could teach all aspects of reading i.e. phonics, blended sounds, compound sounds and the list goes on.
