All children can learn, no matter what challenges they may have. I truly believe that. It is true that some children need a little more help than others and that is where I can help.
I have been an elementary school teacher for 9 years, and can't think of doing anything else. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Elementary Reading & Literacy. I am licensed as a Prek-6th grade teacher and Reading Specialist. I have taught Kindergarten-3rd grade and 6th grade as well as Reading.
I'm happy to talk with you about your child's needs and how we can help them be a lifelong learner.
I am qualified to tutor in phonics because, as a primary grades teacher, I have often used phonics in my teaching. For some students this is a very helpful way for them to learn how to read. They can often benefit from sort words, finding patterns in words, and using the sounds in words.
As a certified teacher, I have had to take many of the Praxis tests - Reading, Writing, Math. I also had to take the Praxis for Elementary Education. I passed all of these with high scores on my first time taking them.
I have had a lot of experience using study skills. Personally, as a teacher, I have had to take many exams to qualify me as a teacher and Reading Specialist. Therefore, I've learned many things on my own. I have also had experience teaching students how to take tests. I work with 3rd and 4th graders at my school on how to take tests, choose correct answers, and keep their stamina up.
