I am a certified teacher Early Childhood through 6th grade. I specialize in helping struggling reading and math students. At the first session, I test each student to understand what skills they are lacking and develop customized programs to address those gaps. To keep the student on level with current and upcoming classwork, I try to work with the students existing teacher I am familiar with the curriculum in each grade level and will help students prepare for standardized tests. To make learning fun and to keep the student engaged, I use plenty of games and songs. I truly love working one to one with my students and will motivate your child to achieve higher levels of success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Dyslexia

I am currently tutoring dyslexic students and have developed a strategy for them which works. I am working on my Masters degree in reading.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher in EC - 6th grade and have classroom experience in these grades.

Elementary Math

I am a certified teacher in Early Childhood through 6th grade. I have taught math in the classroom and have tutored students through 8th grade. I work with students, their parents and their teachers to improve their understanding and performance in math. At the first meeting, I informally test the student to determine what gaps are causing the students problems. I then use a mix of games, rhymes, songs and drill to engage the student and keep him interested and successful.

Phonics

I am a certified elementary teacher and phonics is a part of our reading curriculum. In addition, I have done additional work in phonics to enhance phonics lessons with my struggling readers.

Reading

I am a 4th grade teacher and have specialized in helping struggling readers. My process is to test the student and uncover what skills they have missed that are causing the problems and then I go back to the basics on those specific skills. I use all manner of lesson types including games, songs, manipulatives, iPad and whatever else I can find that works. We also read out loud to each other a lot. I find what the correct reading level for the child is and bring books at just below that level to help build confidence. I would love to talk with you further about this opportunity.

Study Skills

I am a certified teacher. I have taken a Study Skills Tutoring seminar from SOAR study skills and now give regular seminars in study skills to elementary and middle skills students.

















TAKS

I am a certified teacher and taught 3rd - 5th which are all TAKS grades. In teaching those grades I have used all resources to teach the students how to prepare specifically for the TAKS test.
