About Annette

Hello,
I hope that we have the opportunity to meet. I just know we can successfully bring you through this snag you are experiencing as you learn something new. It is normal to run into a bit of trouble while learning new subjects. We all have to push through mental blocks to grow and learn. You can do this. We are created to ask for help and receive help, it is part of being human. I believe teaching one-on-one/private tutoring is the best way to learn. You are taking the right steps now by seeking help. You've got this.

Here is a little about me. I have taught in several states and in many different environments. My degree in education taught me how to prepare materials in an easy to understand way. I have been hired in the corporate environment to train and manage a large staff. My love for teaching was discovered while I was a little girl as I taught many stuffed bears in my pretend classroom. My degree from Auburn University led me into the teaching profession I have now enjoyed for many years. It would be my pleasure to be your tutor.


I have always enjoyed reading and grammar. While living in Simsbury, Connecticut, I was hired by their school systems as a Reading Specialist. In my private classroom I taught students everyday to read. I have many great skills waiting to be taught to you. These skills will become part of your own personal tool box and as you incorporate these tools into your reading, you will find you enjoy reading too.

While I was teaching in Connecticut, I learned the Common Core. It is the nuts and bolts of teaching while the standards of present day education. I am trained, experienced and happy to help you get on track.

I have been an elementary school teacher for many years. I have taught children in many states and grades ranging from pre-school to eighth grade. My classroom management skills have been recognized as a pleasant environment learning culture. I believe individual instruction is important and learning is vital to encourage helpful social skills. I was hired as the Basic Skills teacher for a larger elementary school. Students were given individual attention and instruction as I made careful notes, reports and documentation as needed to track their process.

I have gathered many phonics teaching materials for each type of learner. Phonics is a skill that some children are not equipped to understand. Once we break through and discover the learning style, then we will teach phonics in a way that will make sense to the child.

I am excited at the thought of being your private tutor. I enjoyed teaching my own children as well as in a classroom setting, however, tutoring is a lot of fun and a rewarding challenge that relieves frustration and stress from the parents and child. Call me and let's get started! We are a team with a goal to be champs! You can do this!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I have prepared and taught many Bible studies for churches and small groups. I have also created and advised teachers and administrators of which curriculum to purchase for the departments while I was the elementary director.

Common Core

Throughout my teaching career I have gained more knowledge and materials to make me well versed with the Common Core. As I teach the grade level of each student I make sure past skills have been mastered. Each skill builds on another. By learning the tools needed to master each level; the students gain they confidence they need to keep their momentum and will accelerate.

Elementary (K-6th)

I earned my bachelor degree in Elementary Education. I have taught as a classroom teacher, reading teacher, basic skills teacher and directors of elementary programs. I have written curriculum, advised and trained church teachers whom I hired and also coordinated the department. As a homeschool teacher I taught children from infant to eighth grade.

Homeschool

I have transferred my classroom teaching and tutoring individuals into teaching homeschoolers. As a homeschool teacher I enjoy the relaxed environment and faster pace individual instruction provides. The homeschool students I have taught have excelled and the reward has been great for all involved.

Study Skills

While living in Connecticut I taught at a large elementary school as the Basic Skills teacher for kindergarten through sixth grade. I taught the children individually each day and kept records for their classroom teacher. I also taught these skills in the classroom while I had my own students.
