My name is Sylvia, and I presently work as an instructional aid teaching 2nd and 3rd graders reading, writing and vocabulary skills in an elementary school setting. I am para certified and have references as well if needed. I love working with children one on one and it has been a joy to watch kids grow and develop in reading, writing and other English skills. I believe that all kids are capable of success and deserve the right to learn English skills properly. I have worked for the school system for 2 years now and have also tutored voluntarily for a private school my daughter attended. It was during that time that I decided I wanted to do this work for my career. I also was able to home school our daughter who has Aspergers for two years. This was rewarding as well as challenging. I understand many different quirks that children with Aspergers have. They are all very intelligent and have much to offer our society. I know that I would be able to work and help your child grow and develop as they learn the language in a fun environment. I am dibble and Azella trained. I can teach phonics, reading, and vocabulary skills. I test students first to see where they are at to know how and what needs they have as an individual. I will provide all materials as well as rewards for milestones reached. I am a firm believer that kids need encouragement in order to learn properly. I spoil the kids I work with now with cute stickers and the occasional candy and other prizes. I have seen growth and appreciation in all areas which makes all the extras worth it. If you would like your elementary age child to grow in the knowledge and understanding of the English language then I am the right fit for you. I have the work knowledge, training and experience needed to teach. You will not be disappointed. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and I look forward to working with you.

Very Easy to Work With!

I have been very happy with Sylvia. She has been open to working with my daughters needs as well as scheduling. I have full trust in her intentions to help with the learning process.

Absolutely Amazing

I contacted Sylvia as my first choice in tutoring for my 6 year old daughter. We love her. My daughter who is very shy warmed up very well and looks forward to each session. I hired Sylvia to help her with her reading as she is going into the first grade, with 4 lessons in I have noticed a huge difference in her reading. If you are looking for someone with patience then she is the one to hire. She puts a lot of thought and care into her teaching. I'm super happy with my choice and would highly recommend her to everyone.
