I have 20 years experience as an elementary school teacher. I have tutored for the past four years for a tutoring service and privately. I teach reading and math for elementary students, but also help with homework and other subjects where they are having difficulties. I also can teach music and piano as I have taught piano as needed for the past 30 years. I strive to make tutoring fun by playing learning games with students and providing hands on activities as part of each session.

I currently teach during the daytime so I am only available during after-school hours.

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 been teaching elementary school for 21 years. I have taught Pre-k, Kindergarten, third grade, Fifth grade, and sixth grade English and Math for one of those years. I feel I would be able to teach any subject in grades 1-4 and reading or language for 5th and 6th grade. I have also tutored Kindergarten through fourth grade for several years.

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary school for 22 years. During that time I have taught math and also tutored math after school for students. I have also tutored math for many students that were in third through sixth grade privately.

Music Theory

I have taught piano lessons which includes theory on and off for 30 years. I took piano myself for nine years as a child and it included music theory up through college level. I also taught music in elementary school for seven years where I taught theory.

Phonics

I have taught elementary school for 20 years and have used the phonics approach to teach reading. For last 5 years I have taught phonics to kindergarten and pre-k students as a tool to teach them to read.

Piano

I took piano lessons for 10 years as a child. I minored in music in college and am certified to teach music in grades K - 8. For the past 30 years, I have taught piano lessons as needed. I also taught music for seven years in an elementary school. I have also played the piano in the past at my church and for people that needed to be accompanied by the piano.

Reading

I have been teaching elementary students for 22 years. I have also tutored for about 7 years. I have helped many students with reading difficulties and they have achieved the reading level needed at public school.
