A Few reading Tutor Qualifications

I am trained as a teacher for dyslexic students. The methodology can be utilized with modification to teach reading to all students. I have found the technique very beneficial to all students and not only dyslexic students.
Shabnum H.
I have many years experience providing elementary students with reading instruction as well as intervention.
Erica G.
I have always been an avid reader since elementary school. This has greatly helped my vocabulary through exposure to new words, and has also improved my ability to garner meaning through context clues, something I hope to pass on.
Arthur M.
I have been a children's librarian for five years and have always loved the challenge of finding that perfect book for our young patrons!
Gail B.
I am qualified to teach/tutor reading PreK-6th grade. I have taught reading to all age groups and understand the Common Core Standards.
Michelle G.
Over ten years of teaching experience ranging from the classroom to private tutoring.
Lily U.
Literacy is such an crucial skill! Reading can be fun and is best paired with writing. My experience includes using phonics, spelling rules, using root words, prefixes and suffixes to find word meanings. I have also taught reading comprehension.
Hillery B.
Since I am trained in teaching ESL, I know how to teach reading and literacy. The same tactics used with ESL students can be applied to non-ESL students that struggle with reading, writing, and vocabulary. My creativity allows me to add visual and physical cues to my teaching to help the students remember different strategies.
Toni F.
Able to help students with strategies to help their reading comprehension and fluency.
Stacy R.
Having earned two Master's Degrees in Philosphy and International Justice respectively, correct grammar and excellent proofreading skills come naturally. I teach my students how to read comprehensively and write well under the pressure of exams and SAT/ACT testing.
Danusia G.
