About Ovid

I spent more than 30 years as a newspaper reporter, editor and publisher, so I am VERY experienced to help students with reading, spelling, and writing and literature

I also taught math, English and social studies to 6th graders in the Los Angeles Unified School District for a semester back in 1985 before coming to Arkansas. Plus I have previous teaching/tutoring experience at one private school and an after-school program, both in El Dorado.

I am semi-retired now, so I would be available nearly any time that is most convenient for the student and his/her parents.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught a class of 6th graders in the Los Angeles Unified School District more than 25 years ago. The subjects taught included math, English and history. This was at a junior high in a Los Angeles suburb.

Also as a college graduate with a BA degree, I feel I am more than qualified to serve as a tutor to K-6 students.

My 30 years experience in journalism makes me more than qualified to tutor them in reading, writing and related areas.

Elementary Math

I taught elementary math in Los Angeles Unified School District in 1985 and also taught math in a private school in El Dorado and tutored math in an after school program.
