Elementary (K-6th)

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.

Elementary Math

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

Study Skills

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.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
