A Few reading Tutor Qualifications
My post-certification in both Florida & Georgia is in Special Ed Consultative, which means I've worked predominantly with SpEd students who are mainstreamed into the classroom. These are children who generally have ADD, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, etc. --not students who have severe or profound disabilities. I have also assisted and taught Reading and phonics in elementary through high school levels and have tutored with Wyzant for over 7 years. I am currently retired from teaching in public schools.
Teaching/tutoring is my true calling. I look forward to working with people who are motivated to learn and those who lack confidence in their ability to learn.
As an avid reader and lover of books, reading comprehension and summarization comes naturally to me. Reading was one of my highest scores during the SAT's.
I have been teaching reading for about 20 years. I have been trained in guided reading, analyzing reading errors, Reading First, and Fountas and Pinnel.
I understand how to analyze reading errors and help students make considerable gains in reading.
I am an experienced Special Education teacher and gain great satisfaction in bringing my students up to grade level expectations. I have experience both in working in a resource room and in a regular classroom. I use phonics and whole language to teach reading. I use phonics to teach the beginning stages of reading and it also helps in writing. With the use of whole language I find the use of pictures helps in the understanding of the words and the story. With older students I also use phonics to teach new words and use story telling to help with understanding and with writing.
I have tutored 200+ students. I work with students to help them understand character development, themes, and symbols within literature and other academic texts. I hope to share some of the tips and tricks I have learned from being a student and from tutoring to help students gain confidence.
As a veteran English teacher of 26 years now, I've worked with students of all reading abilities. I am able to determine reading weaknesses and offer many strategies for improvement of both comprehension and speed.
Reading requires the reader's ability to construct the meaning of a text through the systematic processing of the written text in time.
There are seven principles which readers must master to re-construct the writer's meaning in writing the text.
This course will introduce the student to these 7 STANDARDS by which language TEXTS are constructed by a writer and understood by a reader. These STANDARDS are:
1. Cohesion; 2. Coherence; 3. Intentionality; 4. Acceptability; 5. Informativity; 6. Situationality; and 7. Intertextuality.
Informing the student of these standards and providing guided practical exercise will provide the student with a strong competence in professions such as journalism, the law, as well as competence to participate in public discourse in the mass media.
I am a nanny for kids 2-5 and teach reading and other similar developmental studies daily. I have a lot of experience with this subject. My kiddos love learning time with Nanny Ashley!
