I have been licensed in Cosmetology and have tutored students to pass the exam. I have many techniques I use to help with the memorization process. I love this field and have remained in it because I love helping those who wish to become Cosmetologists and pass the State Exam. My students learn fast and enjoy the tutoring process. We begin at the beginning of the material and do not proceed until it is learned. My memorization techniques make the process easy for any prospective student.
I know you will love learning with me! I have been tutoring elementary students for the past nine years and each student has become successful! I teach in a way that is fun and easy to learn! You will be smiling and so proud of yourself! No longer will you fear the teacher calling on you... you will be raising that hand in the air and proudly speaking the answers!
I help in the areas of reading, phonics, reading comprehension and study skills. I can show you how to find the answers and write the answers correctly.
Each of my students have gone to the top of the class! I hope you will be one of them and become my student!
My experience in teaching ESL is extensive. I have taught one adult man English while preparing him to take his Immigration Test. Many of my younger students come from bi-lingual homes and I have helped them to learn English. I have taught at two universities and one college and studied through the doctoral level. I have been tutoring for over ten years, specializing in phonics, reading comprehension, spelling and writing. Each of my students have become successful and proud of their accomplishments.
Phonics is essential for every student. If you do not know the way letters and letter combinations are created then one cannot read or write. If you do not have a very strong basis in this area it can have very serious consequences as you get older.
I make this a fun and easy subject to learn. It is so essential to learn this and the younger the better! I have cards and games I use to teach these imperative skills. I have been tutoring twin girls since before Kindergarten and we began with the alphabet. By the end of the school year they tested at a 14... the medium score is 4. I was very proud of them and they of themselves!
Let me help your child learn these basic and important skills! It will be a fun and rewarding experience! These skills influence a lifetime of pride in self and accomplishment!
I begin by evaluating how well the student knows phonics, spelling and the reading ability. Then we determine the level the student is at and the materials that will best suit the student. I use high interest material to awaken the interest and curiosity in the student. I teach them how to find answers quickly and how to write sentences. We also write paragraphs then to writing stories. I also help with homework and language arts (nouns, verbs, etc.).
I received my master's in sociology in 1982 from Ohio University. I also taught at the university while studying for my masters. I also received a scholarship to attend North Texas State University to work on my doctorate in sociology and taught at that university as well during my studies.
I have tutored students with learning difficulties and they have each been successful. I believe each student comes to me with specific difficulties and together we overcome them.
My students who have overcome and succeeded are of great pride to me. Each of my students are successful and I would like the opportunity to help you and your child.
Knowing how to study is as important as learning how to read if you are a student. Knowing how to study makes the study time more enjoyable and takes less time for the student. I have taught many students this skill and am proud of how each of them have succeeded.
There are easy ways to learn this skill. I hope to hear from you so that I can help your child and make learning an even more enjoyable experience!
