The ability to make a difference in the lives of youth through literacy education prompts me be a tutor. I have a desire to share my love of reading and learning with students so that they will be inspired to achieve and become successful in all areas of their school experiences. I view myself as an educator who is dedicated to empowering students with a sense of accomplishment by instilling an appreciation for reading as a pleasurable, worthwhile, and relevant endeavor. As a result, their personal as well as their academic growth is enhanced.

As a certified Reading Specialist and English teacher, I have experience teaching students of all ages and reading levels. I have prepared lessons based on setting goals for a student's individual needs. This includes an emphasis on phonics, pronunciation, and word development through reading, and usage in writing and speaking. Tutoring is especially beneficial for students because they are given attention that is uninterrupted and lessons that are specialized to promote individual progress. My interest is to contribute my teaching skills, experience, and expertise for the growth of students to raise their reading levels while building confidence and pride in themselves.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience teaching students in grades K-6 as an Improvement of Reading teacher and Language Arts teacher. Currently, I am a tutor with a Saturday morning program teaching elementary students in reading and math.

English

I am a certified English teacher. My undergraduate degree was in English Education. I have experience teaching students in public schools, charter schools, and private schools. As a Reading Specialist, the subjects I taught have included many area of English.

Phonics

As an Improvement of Reading teacher, I prepared lessons with an emphasis on phonics. The goal was to improve the reading skills of students in a small group setting. Phonics formed the basic foundation of instruction for students to achieve and progress to become better readers in all subjects.

Reading

As a certified Reading Specialist and English teacher, I have experience preparing lessons and instructing students in an atmosphere of setting goals based on individual needs. This includes an emphasis on phonics, pronunciation, and word development through reading, and usage in writing and speaking. In the role of Improvement of Reading teacher, I also administered on-going reading assessments while providing small group instruction.

Monitoring student progress and adapting instruction to support achievement was essential in my teaching experience. My responsibilities involved recording individual student progress on report forms and maintaining on-going records of students' work and assessments. Additionally, I collaborated extensively with colleagues in planning and implementing lessons using classroom and supplementary materials. This teamwork approach proved to be especially beneficial for students. They were able to raise their level of proficiency while building confidence. As a result, their academic as well as their personal growth was enhanced.

Spelling

As a Reading Specialist, spelling is an important part of instruction. I have experience teaching school age students and adults. I place emphasis on phonics, pronunciation, and word development through reading, and usage in writing and speaking. This approach proves to be successful for a student to raise the level of proficiency while building confidence.

Study Skills

I have experience tutoring students of all ages. I am a certified English teacher and Reading Specialist. I encourage middle school students to take notes during class and to ask questions. It is important that they review their notes before they begin homework. To be organized is the key to successfully completing assignments.
