A Few reading Tutor Qualifications

I have 5 years Experience in field of Early Childhood Education. I was awarded "Outstanding Student: English Composition" from Miami Dade College (2006).
Brandy B.
Early on, I became smitten by the opportunities that education can provide an individual. As I dug deeper, into my feelings I realized the impact that teachers, administration and support services have on the varied blooming minds filtering into our educational system. I ponder how can we maximize their growth and how do we facilitated this learning period with unfettered and unbiased intentions. What’s more, how will these students perceive the gifts of augmentation that systematically prepare an individual, as well as me, to one day to celebrate the gift of knowledge transfer? The answer to this quandary is highly fluid….yet, I will not falter because mastering the parameters of education is an ongoing challenge but there are many like myself who stand prepared to deal with the variance of contextual support and environmental systems that affect the external benefits of educating ourselves and those we reach. My philosophy is simple “Just do it!” like Nike says.I am dedicated to the children and their continued growth and I know the value of which we seek is never-ending as long as there is hope, resources, and smiles that foster the environment for change and reasoning.Thus, if you need someone who is dedicated to your learning needs I would be the best choice for your educational growth. Having over 16 years of educational and experiential experience, i.e., BA, Psychology, BS Public Health, and MBA, positions me to be a reliable, empathic and encouraging tutor. Call on me to do a job well done!
Reign B.
As a certified elementary teacher, I have been trained to help children improve reading skills according to their individual need and learning style. For example, some children need help in sight word recognition, while others may need help in reading comprehension, word attack skills, or fluency. I enjoy helping children to develop a natural love of reading.
Nancy G.
I taught reading to 6th graders in Sullivan County. I also review Reading with my 6th graders now before our state tests.
Tiffany G.
I've read probably a thousand books in my lifetime and have all the literary knowledge associated with them.
Jacob C.
I taught reading and writing to elementary school students while working as an ESL teacher at a private k-8 school in West Covina. I also worked as a reading and writing tutor at a private language school in San Marino for over five years.
George S.
Graduate Coursework: Reading Assessment and Disabilities, at Fitchburg State University. I have a strong background in Literacy, and have tutored many students in better reading strategies. I always encourage students to read interactively and utilize SQ3R methods to better engage with the text. I also help guide students through specific passages, so that they can come to a better understanding of how to read critically.
Stephanie G.
I have degrees in English and Education and have taught Language Arts in Iowa and North Carolina.
Elinor L.
I began reading at a very young age - I had a high school reading level by 4th grade and have had great success helping my students achieve greater understanding in their reading as well. I can help students with classic literature, drama, prose, fiction, or any academic reading be it research material or textbooks.
Melanie Y.
I have a master's degree in secondary education to go along with degrees in both criminal justice and legal studies. I also took AP English all through high school and scored the highest of any student in my class in the reading comprehension sections of the AP exams.

I am looking for a reading tutor for my son. He is almost 7 years old and in 1st grade. He is bi-lingual (English and Chinese), thus needs to catch up on English reading.
