I am a K-4th grade emergency substitute teacher in the public school system. Prior to this, I tutored K-12th grade no-child-left-behind students and home schooled my own children for six years.
I love to help students who are having difficulties in grammar, writing, spelling, and language arts. Essay and report writing are my favorite subjects and I have recently been honing these skills by studying to be a grant writer. I prefer to write and design my own lesson plans, catered to the student's abilities and desires, using online or personal curriculum. I find that many students have not learned the basics, so are unable to move on effectively to more advanced concepts. For this reason, I begin my sessions by assessing the skill levels of the student, then work on building upon those skills, and eventually progress to putting all the concepts together.
I have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in General Agriculture, so I have taken many science classes.
I am above-average in catching grammatical and spelling errors in written material.
I am an avid reader and above average in vocabulary. I love to do crossword puzzles, which always helps to improve vocabulary. I am also a speed reader; something I had to pick up in college in order to survive!
I am a very strong speller. I have a tendency to catch misspelled words in books, on reader boards and in paperwork.
I have an above-average ability in vocabulary. I love to do crossword puzzles and the vocabulary section in Reader's Digest. Much to my family's disgust, I'm almost always right!
I enjoy writing and grew up as an avid letter writer (when we actually used to write letters). I have always enjoyed writing short stories and essays, but prefer writing nonfiction to writing fiction. I love to write witty or comical stories.
