I am a certified elementary teacher K-6th grade. I have worked in the field of education for the past 20+ years with experience working with a wide variety of learning needs. In addition to tutoring students in areas needing review and relearning, I also work with students who desire enrichment. I make learning fun using games and interactive, hands-on activities. Optional home extensions are available.

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.

ADD/ADHD

During my 10+ years teaching in an elementary classroom and 3 years tutoring, I have taught many students who had an ADD/ADHD diagnosis. I was so good with these children in the classroom that those students were specially placed in my room. I offered them the right balance of structure and flexibility as well as deeply engaging and motivating lessons.

Dyslexia

As an elementary teacher, I have taught students with a diagnosis of dyslexia. I have also participated in professional development for educators that outlined what dyslexia is and is not, and how to adjust the curriculum to ensure their success. Students who are dyslexic often have emotional issues around learning that have arisen due to their challenges in a traditional classroom. One of the gifts I offer students is the opportunity to enjoy learning and experience success in a variety of ways, thus improving their self confidence.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am Washington State certified elementary teacher grades K-6th.

ESL/ESOL

As a classroom teacher I have worked with many students for whom English was a second language. I made accommodations and differentiated the curriculum to give them the needed support and foundation for learning the language in the context of school and friendships. I also have experience tutoring elementary through middle school ESL students, offering assistance with vocabulary, grammar, and social skills.

Phonics

As a primary teacher, I regularly incorporated phonics into my reading, writing, and spelling instruction. I am fluent in many phonics curricula and approaches to teaching reading.

Special Needs

I have many years of experience working with students who have special needs as a classroom teacher.

Study Skills

I specialize in working with elementary students, helping them to organize their information, take notes, study, research, and complete assignments.
