I have a BA in Early Childhood/Early Elementary and a certificate in both Special Education and Montessori Methods. I have over twenty years of experience teaching young children how to read and consequently have a 95% success rate for teaching four-year-olds how to read. I am experienced in teaching children from many different cultures and languages.

I use scientifically based techniques, using phonetics combined with whole word, while making it fun and easy. I rely on the California Reading Program, the Max reading series, Montessori methods, and my own creativity to interest and challenge my students. I believe learning can be fun so I incorporate games and music. I truly enjoy teaching and engage my students with the love of learning.

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 BA in Elementary Education and have over 20 years teaching experience.
I have been trained in and utilize the California Reading Program in conjunction with the "Max Series" early readers. I have an American Montessori Society certification which enables me to teach a wide range of learners. I have had the pleasure of teaching many diverse cultures. I also have a K through 12 Special Education certification.

Phonics

I have a BA in Early Elementary Education and I have been teaching children how to read for over 20 years. I utilize the California phonetic reading program and the "Max" phonetic early readers series. I can confidently say I have taught most of my 5 year old students to read before kindergarten.

Special Needs

I am qualified to tutor Special Needs since I have a N through 12 Special Education Certification. I have experience teaching students who have IEP's. I have extensive experience writing and delivering curriculum which helps build confidence and challenges a student also. I utilize hands on proven methods, scaffolding materials, and music which can accommodate a large range of learners.
