Elementary (K-6th)

I tutored children in grades K-5 for the past two years in literacy. K-2 worked on phonics, read books connected with the curriculum, wrote stories and had progress checks. Grades 3-5 learned to better understand cause and effect, genre, details and other literacy topics. They wrote stories and analyzed other written works.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked with preschoolers whose native languages were Japanese and Spanish. I have had Belgian, Swiss and Japanese live-in exchange students. All spoke English but through our conversations were able to improve their ability to speak more smoothly and understand American idioms.

Phonics

I have taught phonics in preschool for 25 years in San Jose, CA. I have taught phonics to K-1 in Tacoma for the past two years as a tutor.

Reading

I have worked with K-5th grades and adults in learning and improving their reading skills. Last year I tutored 16 children
in reading and literacy. I employed activities such as chanting, games, acting and songs to help the kids learn spelling rules, understand word meanings and develop fluency.

Writing

I have been a writer for many years. I write primarily for children and have had some poems and stories published. I have also worked with students from Belgium, Switzerland and Japan to improve their English speaking and writing.

I have helped my own two sons with the writing of their college application essays.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
