If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have enjoyed teaching students in a variety of settings, but my favorite is individual instruction. I think understanding how a student thinks is one key to successful learning. A second key is utilizing a variety of instructional strategies to match the student's needs. My 40 years of experience with students range from primary grades to middle school in all areas of reading, writing and math. I am certified in K-8 education and Special Education.

Selecting the right tutor for your child is an important process. I am available for an in person interview with parents and students before any tutoring charges are incurred to ensure the best fit for the student's tutoring services.

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

As a certified special educator, I have worked successfully with students who experience symptoms of attention deficit disorder. Often, students benefit from individual attention, novel ways to practice new learning, and hands on learning experiences. Ultimately, students need to understand what the learning target is and how they will achieve it.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently licensed and endorsed in Colorado for elementary education and also in Special Education K-12. I have 10 years experience as a classroom teacher, 12 years as an interventionist and 8 years as a special educator in moderate needs.

Elementary Math

I have provided individual tutoring and small group instruction that has helped many students become proficient in math on TCAP.

Phonics

I have over 20 years of experience as an interventionist in the area of reading instruction. I am proficient in a variety of ways to help students learn the alphabetic principle. Specifically, I have been trained in Lindamood Bell and SpellRead instructional programs.
