ADD/ADHD

As a public school teacher, I have had several students with ADD/ADHD who have had successful school years with me. My goal is to teach and tutor students with any need and to meet them where they are. We all learn differently, and I strive to provide students with the differentiation and scaffolding needed to help them to become successful learners. I've used a number of incentives and techniques to help my students with attention issues, and they have been quite successful.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified to teach elementary students grades K-6 in the state of Pennsylvania. I obtained my certification through a master's degree program in Elementary Education at Temple University. I am also proficient in middle school math and worked almost 10 years as a professional writer. As a result, I am capable of providing tutoring services to students in K and up.

Elementary Math

Having taught in the public schools, I have familiarity with several Math series including Everyday Math. I favor a hands on approach to learning math and put emphasis on real-world application.

Elementary Science

In the public schools, I have taught science using Foss Science and other traditional methods. Science can open the world for a student, and many students have a strong interest in science that they aren't able to fully use in school because of time restraints. There are some great ways to make learning in other subjects more interesting for students by integrating science into reading, writing and math.

English

As a professional writer with a degree in Journalism, I can help your student with English, Grammar, Reading, Writing and Proofreading. I have a passion for writing and worked for nearly 10 years as a newspaper reporter. Mastering language arts is vital to being a successful student, and I can help your child reach that goal.

General Computer

I have been using computers since their early inception into the field of newspaper and journalism. Throughout the last two decades, I have built upon my computer skills using PC and Apple based systems. I have a strong knowledge in Microsoft Office, Internet Browsing, e-mail, social media and portable devices.

Grammar

As a professional writer with a degree in Journalism, I can help your student with English, Grammar, Reading, Writing and Proofreading. I have a passion for writing and worked for nearly 10 years as a newspaper reporter. Mastering language arts is vital to being a successful student, and I can help your child reach that goal.

Phonics

As a teacher certified to teach elementary grades K-6, I am able to provide students with phonics instruction. I have received training in Project Read/Phonology and have used Houghton Mifflin reading series on several elementary grade levels. Additionally, I worked for nearly 10 years as a professional newspaper reporter and have extensive knowledge of the English language having obtained a BA in Journalism and a Master's in Elementary Education.

Proofreading

As a professional writer with a degree in Journalism, I can help your student with English, Grammar, Reading, Writing and Proofreading. I have a passion for writing and worked for nearly 10 years as a newspaper reporter. Mastering language arts is vital to being a successful student, and I can help your child reach that goal.

Reading

In the public schools, I have used a number of reading programs including Houghton Mifflin, Project Read, 100 Book Challenge and other series. I'm familiar with traditional guided reading (skills groups), can identify reading levels and can help your child develop skills to become a successful reader.

Spelling

In today's world of communicating via text messages and brief email, many have lost or never learned good spelling skills. Yet, being able to spell words and communicate well in writing is a needed skill in order to be a successful student. I'm a professional writer and certified elementary school teacher. I can take your student beyond studying a list of spelling words only to forget how to spell them in a few weeks. I'll teach your child how to recognize spelling patterns and how to apply those patterns in his or her everyday writing.

Study Skills

It is important that we all become life-long learners. We are learn differently. Unfortunately, we school doesn't always provide learning opportunities that best meet the learner. As a classroom teacher, I always provided differentiated instruction to meet the varied needs of my students. As a tutor, I will ask your student questions to determine how he or she best learns and then focus on enhancing and developing those skills to help your student learn best at school. I can also help your student become better organized and to work smarter and not harder at school and at home while doing homework.

Vocabulary

In the public schools, I have used a number of reading programs including Houghton Mifflin, Project Read, 100 Book Challenge and other series. I can help your child develop his or her vocabulary in an effort to become a better reader.

Writing

Writing is perhaps one of the most important subjects a child can master. Without the ability to be able to communicate with words, students struggle. In addition to being certified as an elementary education teacher, I am a professional writer. I worked for almost 10 years as a newspaper reporter and know the craft of writing. I can teach your student the importance of writing and help him or her master the mechanics of being a good writer. Writing is a passion of mine, and I would love the opportunity to help it become a passion for your student. I can teach your student the process of writing and how to write in a concise and organized way with a focus on accurate spelling and grammar and improved vocabulary.

Works from student's own expectations for success Overall Brian is a very warm, encouraging and professional tutor. He is also punctual, which is very crucial. We have only had two sessions with him so far and can already see some motivation in my brother to succeed- something he is lacking. Brian seems to work off of the student's own expectations for learning and success, and seems determined to help his student succeed in this way. My broth ...
