Hello, I like tutoring and teaching because I know I am making a difference. I like the challenge of getting a student to be on task and interested. Also, to feel good about what they are learning and doing. My experience is that there is structure and expectation in school/education. Then, there is learning where you are at and figuring out how to maximize on your strengths and improve in areas or study habits that are challenging.
Supporting students in a structured and consistent way helps them over time to achieve both long term and short term goals. I like to feel trusted and to see children grow and achieve their dreams.

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.
I have taught students in the multiple subjects for years as a Long-Term Sub. I have passed both the CBEST and the CSET for Multiple Subjects.
I have taught Kinder through 2nd grade for years as a day to day sub and long term sub. In those grades, phonics is taught daily. I know many different ways to introduce letters and sounds and songs, going over, showing pictures as they relate to beginning sounds and ending sounds.
