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 degree in Elementary Education, K-8 with 19 years of teaching experience in these levels. I have taught math, reading, writing, science, social studies, grammar, study skills, vocabulary, phonics and spelling in grades K-6 and cultural education in grade 8. I am currently substitute teaching in grades K-12 in both private and public schools.

Elementary Math

I am qualified to teach specific math skills and problem solving. I have tools that work with young students in these two areas that provide them with confidence and skill.

English

I have worked with students from many countries and with varying levels of English. I have also worked with second language adults. I have over 30+ years of experience in education.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked with children from many cultural and second language backgrounds and enjoy assisting them! Let me support your student in this important skill of learning the English language with confidence.

Needlework

One of my favorite subjects to teach is the needlecrafts. I specialize in knitting, embroidery and rug making. I have over 35 years experience in the needlecrafts. I will make it easy to learn!

Phonics

I am certificated in grades K-8, all subjects, and K-12 reading. I have taught second grade for 8 years and Title I reading for grades K-4 for three years. In both of these experiences, I taught phonics through the Writing Road to Reading, SRA and Wired for Reading. I also have worked in a response to interventions environment which assesses students in the area of phonics instruction.

Reading

I have a reading endorsement for grades K-12. I have taught primary students as a classroom teacher and have served as a Title/LAP teacher as recently as this March in a private school.

Sewing

I have been a seamstress for 45 years. I can design, teach and make just about any item from a pattern or my own design work. I have taught family members and friends to sew, while taking sewing lessons on my own to better understand the craft from a student perspective. I would be happy to teach the craft of sewing.

Study Skills

During my 28 years of educational experience I have incorporated steady, consistent study skill instruction for students in grades K-8. I have prepared students for all types of assessments including multiple choice, essays and short form essays. A very important part of the study skills instruction I have provided for my students has included the organization, tracking and pacing of learning. Strong study skill acquisition contribute to self-confidence and learning success.

Writing

I have tools that I use with students to teach them how to write with confidence. They are very reliable and work!

Great Tutor all around! — I want to take the time to recognize the truly dedicated and skilled professional that Leita is.
