My name is Bonnie. I am a long time educator who can provide flexible and stress-free tutoring to elementary age children with various needs.
I have extensive experience teaching Elementary School children. My favorite elementary subject is Math and I love helping students become more proficient Math students. I have a lot of experience with the Chicago Every Day Math Program and I am familiar with the Elementary School Math curriculum from kindergarten through 5th grade. I have plenty of patience and I understand when math can be hard for some students to grasp. I would be pleased to work with any student in elementary school who needs extra support to be more successful math.
I can also support students with needs beyond math. I am a certified special education and elementary education teacher. I am also a Pennsylvania State Certified School Psychologist. I am very willing to work with all types of learners in any and all elementary school subjects on study skills or help with homework, and I would be glad to communicate with your child's classroom teacher to help coordinate assignments between home and school.
Thank you for your interest.
I am a Pennsylvania state certified special education and elementary education teacher with 30 years of classroom experience in elementary education. I graduated from Penn State in 1979 with a duel degree in elementary and special education. I earned a Masters degree in early childhood education from Chestnut Hill College and a second Masters degree in computer education from Philadelphia University. I am well versed in the curriculum for kindergarten through 6th grade for all major subjects. I can teach the basic skills of reading, writing, math, science, and social social studies to elementary school students. I am able to assess a student's areas of strength and need across content areas and help to teach a student the skills that they need the most to keep up in their classroom. I can help all elementary age students to master grade level skills. I have had extensive experience guiding learners to become more effective students. I can break academic tasks down into smaller steps to ensure student success. I am aware of the prerequisite skills a student needs acquire prior to being presented with new material. I am capable of working with parents and teachers to help support any elementary school age student to succeed in the classroom setting. I recognize that tutoring is only one facet of a child's education and that making adequate progress may involve more than working with a tutor. When tutoring is offered in concert with parent and school support, a student will be more likely to learn and achieve at his/her highest potential.
I am qualified to tutor elementary level mathematics beause I earned a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Penn State University and taught math in an elementary level classroom for 30 years.
I attended extensive professional development programs in math education and also took continuing education classes in math education.
Most of all, I love teaching math to students, I know lots of math games and I can figure out at least ten different ways to explain any one math concept.
My prior experience includes:
* Elementary Math Coach, K-5 Elementary School
* Classroom Teacher - Grades 4 & 5
* Computer Science Teacher, Grades K-6
I can teach students to develop study skills through the use of flash cards, outlines, graphic organizers, and mnemonics.
I can address the skills needed to read content material for meaning and how to take notes or highlight main ideas in the content.
I am able to help students formulate answers to essay questions and how to ensure they address major points or facts when responding to essay questions.
I can help students use technology to access on-line study tools.
I can show students how to break down material into manageable parts in order to study over time instead of cramming the night before.
I can work with students to use their school-based web site to access information teachers are posting to help them in their classes.
I am willing to work with students to guide them toward developing productive and efficient study habits that will improve their overall performance in school.
