As a former high school English teacher, and a parent of a 2011 graduate of Fairfax County Public Schools, I'm ready to help you improve your grades in English class. I am very familiar with FCPS curricula. My son had an IEP and needed help throughout his school career. I was his 'study buddy' for many years, and am quite familiar with Blackboard to access assignments. I understand many special learning needs and difficulties. I can help you improve all of your required written assignments, study for tests, quizzes, and exams, and support you in improving your grades in English.

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 a master's degree in Education from the University of Virginia. I am currently tutoring a third grade student at Holy Spirit school in Burke, VA. I am trained to recognize learning disabilities in reading and can appropriately partially remediate visual-motor difficulties with reading aids, and also refer parents to have the child tested for disabilties. I can refer parents to testing if I see indications that the child is transposing letters or words, which may signal dyslexia. I have tutored children in phonics instruction using picture-word match and filling in the correct letter to match the picture, using sing-a-long and read-a-long rhymes, highlighting words that have the same ending/beginning sound; and so on.

Study Skills

I have a Master's degree in Education from the University of Virginia. I am tutoring elementary students now. I've taught high school. In addition, my son had an IEP and was in study skills courses, so I am well versed in study skills. Techniques include breaking down assignments into manageable parts; reading short sections of longer passages and having the student write down a few words on the main idea or fact; working with flashcards to test memory on vocabulary, etc.
